Literacy event held at Cardiff City Stadium 

Four schools from the Cardiff area made the trip to CCS on Monday, as the Foundation hosted a literacy event, alongside the Premier League Charitable Fund and the National Literacy Trust.

Lansdowne Primary, Pencaerau Primary, Ninian Park Primary and Radnor Primary all attended the event. The students enjoyed a tour of CCS as well as various activities, before receiving a poetry book and edition of The Bluebird on the day.

Mixed U11s Kids Cup 

U11 sides from primary schools across South Wales have made it into the next round of the Kids Cup in association with New Directions Education and the EFL Trust

Fixtures spanning across three days (5th, 6th & 7th December) saw 12 teams qualify for the Cardiff finals. They now have the chance to represent Cardiff City Football Club at the regional finals, which take place at Reading Football Club. 

Cardiff City Scholars proceed to the EFL Futsal Cup

Following a successful round of results, both Cardiff City A and B Futsal teams are through to Round Two of the EFL Futsal Cup.

Both sides finished top of their respective groups, both with three wins from three games. The U19 squads progress to the next round and can be drawn against the likes of Middlesbrough, Southampton, Huddersfield Town and Bristol City.

‘Get Into: Hospitality’ course ends

After two weeks of training, participants from our hospitality course received their certificates and qualifications to seek a career in the hospitality industry.

The students also served guests before the match against Norwich City last week, as well as taking part in a Prince’s Trust event at CCS.
