SATURDAY REQUEST: STAY OFF THE PITCH
This Saturday, following our final home fixture with Bolton Wanderers, Cardiff City Captain Mark Hudson and the squad will take to the pitch to be presented with the coveted Football League Championship trophy.
Since securing promotion against Charlton Athletic last week, the City of Cardiff and supporters in particular have revelled in the euphoric realisation of our Premier League dream. The scenes at Cardiff City Stadium following the final whistle of the Charlton game will long be cherished and remembered by those who were there.
This coming weekend, Cardiff City Football Club kindly asks all supporters to refrain from celebrating on the pitch at any time after the game. This will allow the much anticipated Championship trophy presentation ceremony to run as planned following the final whistle, while maintaining a safe environment for the players and their families to enjoy.
Speaking of what is set to be another momentous occasion in the history of the Club, Malky Mackay said, “Saturday’s game with Bolton is sure to make for another fantastic afternoon in the Capital of Wales.
“My staff, players and I are thoroughly looking forward to performing in front of our fantastic home support for our final home fixture and we will be doing everything we can to sign off the campaign at Cardiff City Stadium with another three points.
“The celebrations following the Charlton match last week were truly special. While we should rightly continue our festivities into Saturday evening and over the coming weeks, I would urge supporters to follow the advice of Cardiff City safety stewards and ground management in keeping off the pitch at all times this Saturday. That way the players will be able to collect their medals and raise the famous trophy to you.”
