Open Top Bus Parade | Sunday 13th May, 3pm
We’re pleased to confirm that the Club will be hosting a Premier League celebration in the city centre on Sunday, 13th May.
The Bluebirds will embark upon an open-top bus parade from Cardiff City Stadium at 3pm, before heading north along Leckwith Road. They’ll then turn into Cowbridge Road East and travel all the way along Cowbridge Road East, over Canton Bridge and onto Castle Street.
The team are expected to arrive at Cardiff Castle between 4.30pm and 5pm where they will be met by the Leader of Cardiff Council and the Lord Mayor. Neil Warnock and the players will then take to an open-air stage to address supporters.
The city is hosting a Car Free Day on Sunday which includes the family-friendly HSBC UK LET’s RIDE Cardiff bike ride. Both events happen around the castle and significant road closures will be in place throughout the day from 5.30am until 8pm.
Cardiff City Football Club supports the Council’s Car Free Day and is asking supporters to take thisopportunity to travel into the city by bus, train, on bikes or on foot to enjoy the event which runs from 10am-3pm.
Car Free Day has been planned for some time, so we also want to thank Cardiff Council for doing everything they can to let us bring our parade into the city centre on the same day.
The entertainment scheduled for Car Free Day will end before the parade reaches the castle, but families are welcome to come down and enjoy the fun before the open-top bus arrives in the city centre. You can read more about Car Free Day and the significant Sunday road closures by clicking here
Once the team arrive at the castle, Neil Warnock and the players will take to an open-air stage to address supporters amidst what we know will be a family-friendly, party atmosphere. Our supporters are invited to join us for the free festivities, at the castle or at any point they wish to see the Parade along the way.
We are conscious that there is limited room in front of the castle and safety on the day will be of paramount importance. We ask fans to remember this on the day especially as the area surrounding the castle will be fully utilised by Car Free Day events up until 3pm on Sunday.
We look forward to seeing you all Sunday and rounding the season off in style!
- Cardiff Bus details diversions for Bluebirds’ victory parade
(The following statement has been issued by Cardiff Bus)
Due to the parade, and the Car-Free Day event which is also taking place on Sunday, Cardiff Bus has a number of service diversions in place across the city.
Roads from the stadium through Leckwith and Canton will be closed from 3pm and will re-open after the parade has passed by; however, other city centre roads that are closed for the parade and Car Free Day will remain closed until 8pm.
Commercial manager at Cardiff Bus Gareth Stevens said: “We would like to congratulate Cardiff City FC on their fantastic promotion to the Premier League and we look forward to celebrating their success along with thousands of fans during this weekend’s event.
“Due to the parade, which is being held at the same time as Car Free Day, there will be a number of diversions in place across our services; however, we will aim to keep these to a minimum and return all our services to their normal operating routes as soon as possible after both events.
“We hope everyone has a fantastic day on Sunday and takes advantage of our reduced priced Park and Ride at Cardiff East (£2 per car all day). Our Adult Day to Go tickets will be only £2.50 all day, to help travel into the centre hassle-free. The East Park & Ride shuttle buses will be running into the city centre every 15 minutes from 9:30am with the last bus leaving the city centre at 5.30pm."
