Next game at the Cardiff City Stadium... the Skybet Championship


CARDIFF CITY v HUDDERSFIELD
16th August 2014 :: k.o. 3:00

THE GALACTICOS HAVE LEFT THE BUILDING - BRING ON THE TERRIERS!

Yes it's back to business on Saturday with the visit of Huddersfield. This being the first home game of our championship campaign, it'll be interesting to see what the attendance will be (my prediction 23,342). For many it'll be the first time they see our impressive new stand towering over the ground, and many like me will be thinking what a shame the seats are the wrong colour!! Whilst on the pitch we really need a great performance from the Bluebirds as we need to hit the ground running if we are going to live up to the expectations the bookies have of us!! The point against Blackburn will look so much better followed by 3 on Saturday. Oh and first time in my new seat at the back of the Canton Stand - had to move from last seasons as it wasn't very lucky!! CCFCSTAD

GETTING TO THE CARDIFF CITY STADIUM..


If you're arriving at Cardiff Central station, the Cardiff City Stadium is 1.4 miles away (approx. 20 minute walk). You could get a taxi just outside the station and this should cost in the region of £5 - £6. If you are planning to walk...

Take a left out of the station - Left again at Wood Street which will take you over a bridge across the Taff, (you will see the Millennium stadium on the right hand side - the home of our national egg chasing team) take another Left off the the road and onto the path under the railway bridge (beware low flying cyclists with bells that demand you dive for cover if rung - just ignore!). The River Taff is now on your left and you are on Taff Mead Embankment - Take the second right into Merches Gardens, you will see the 'Grangetown Taj Mahal!' a Hindu temple at the end of the road - and there is a grassed 'central reservation' proceed to the end of the road so that you pass the temple on the right. Cross the main road (Clare Road) and you will be at the start of Cornwall street. The Neville Pub has now closed which makes no difference to you as a visitor as I wouldn't have recommended you stopping in there anyway!! Proceed all the way to the end of Cornwall Street (3/4 of a mile(ish) ). Half way down on the right is the Cornwall pub where you may fancy some "refreshment" you will be able to mix safely with the locals in this pub - most of whom will also be going to the game. Proceed to the end of Cornwall Street - Cross the road at the end of Cornwall St and take a right up Sloper Road, proceed up the road and the visitors entrance is on the left just past the burger van! A warm welcome awaits you in the stadium - with bar staff in your teams colours - have a great day, enjoy the match - enjoy Cardiff! have a safe journey home, but please DO NOT take any points back with you!!

You may observe on travelling to the game and in the stadium that almost all the home fans are wearing Blue shirts, hats, scarves to show support for Cardiff City, this is because the re-branding of Cardiff City to red is massively unpopular amongst the vast majority of Bluebird fans - and one day we hope the team will return to it's true colour and identity, until then many of us are in complete denial of the whim that has turned it's back on our historical identity - afterall... We're Cardiff City We'll always be Blue!!


Questions that thecardiffcitystadium.co.uk map answers...

Q. How far is the Cardiff City Stadium from Cardiff central railway station and Cardiff central bus station.
A. A fraction under 1.5 miles if you use our suggested pedestrian route shown on the map - this walk should take approximately 20 minutes at a leisurely pace


Q. How far is the Cardiff City Stadium from Cardiff city centre.
A. Pretty much the same reply as above ie. a fraction under 1.5 miles if you use our suggested pedestrian route shown on the map - this walk should take approximately 20 minutes at a leisurely pace.


Q. Are Pubs in the town centre and in Canton freindly for away visitors. (with the exception of bubble trips from west!)
A. In the good old? or rather very much the bad old days, as with plenty of other clubs the answer was no! however as that closet Bluebird fan (Bob the Bluebird) once sang... Times they are a changing, and common sense prevails. As a local I am not aware of any pub that is known as a no go area, however if you turn up in large numbers and very vocal, well perhaps you are going to attract like minded local fans - and the mixture of alcohol fuelled 'banter' could get out of hand. So, do the opposite and you'll probably end up sharing notes on how tough it is to support your particular team and sharing a laugh, a joke and a pint with Bluebird fans. However if in the city centre or Canton a pub feels awkward in any way then you've got many other options to choose from, about 30ish less than 25mins walk to ground - so take your custom somewhere else that deserves it!!

Q. What's the away fan experience at the Cardiff City stadium like?
A. As a lifelong home fan I can't comment from personal experience, however by all accounts the answer is.. Very Good!... your clubs posters, videos, staff wearing your clubs colours, food from your neck of the woods!!! checkout this link --- I'm not being funny but the home fans don't get treated as well as that!!

Q. Why are most Cardiff City fans wearing blue when the team play in Red?
A. Because Cardiff City FC have always played in Blue and in pretty much an act of vandalism against the wishes of the VAST majority of fans we have had this other colour thrust upon us! I personally know, many very loyal Cardiff City fans who have walked away from supporting the club due to this non-sensical, non-caring and frankly ignorant rebrand. Therefore myself and very many like minded Bluebirds will carry on wearing blue until we return to our rightful colour!! - this will not go away. Lets remember most associated with a football club are 'just passing through' players, managers, chairmen, owners etc. where as fans remain with their clubs through thick and thin, indeed we are for life.... WE are Cardiff City, we'll always be Blue!

some text from the map..
it's not just a colour, it's Cardiff City... it's 100+ years of history, it's tradition, pride, it's grandparents, uncles, aunties, parents no longer with us, it's fred keenor, brian clark, phil dwyer, it's the memory of ninian park, the bob bank, the grange end, towering floodlights, it's the colour blue which is the only colour that can ever represent cardiff city football club. Many pass through a football club, yet the ones that really matter, that really care, are the fans, It's the fans that love this club, this city, we are here for life! regardless of success or league position. We are the Bluebirds - We are Blue!
