How Many Football Pitches Fit into Wales?

Extreme weather batters the United Kingdom today.  In fact, we are being hit by a super-storm “the size of Wales”.

It has long been recognised that “the size of Wales” is an official SI unit of measurement.  In recent years, it has been used to measure the size of an iceberg breaking away from Antarctica; the territory belonging to the Kapayo tribe in the Brazilian rainforest; the amount of that same rainforest, which is destroyed annually by deforestation; the area of the Laikipia nature reserve in Kenya; and the size of several independently owned farms in both Canada and Australia.

But just how big is “the size of Wales”?

Well, according to latest research, it is the size of 2,906,162 football pitches.
