The Dansk Boldspil-Union was formed in 1889 becoming the first Football Association outside the four Home Nations of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Despite winning a silver medal at the Olympic Games of 1908 and 1912 and a bronze medal in 1948, the DBU were content to play in the regional Nordic Championship and friendly matches and did not enter a team in the World Cup qualifiers until 1958.

Despite winning a silver medal at the 1960 Olympic Games, Denmark withdrew from their 1962 Word Cup qualifying First Round match against Spain. Spain advanced to the Second Round to face Wales.

The first meeting between Denmark and Wales came in the 1966 World Cup qualifying campaign and Denmark's victory in Copenhagen was their only win during the campaign.

Due to the rebuilding of the National Stadium in Cardiff, Wales' home game against Denmark in the qualifying for Euro 2000 was at Liverpool's Anfield Stadium and the match saw Neville Southall and Mark Hughes take charge of the game following the resignation of Bobby Gould four days earlier.
