In the Family Stand, Cardiff City FC Foundation will be keeping all of the Junior Bluebirds entertained ahead of kick-off with their usual fun blend of games and activities. Keep an eye out for a visit to the Family Stand for some very special guests! 

You may have seen the exciting news recently that we have our first ever Welsh WWE Champions! Mark Andrews and Flash Morgan Webster stunned the Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson and James Drake) and Gallus (Mark Coffey and Wolfgang) to delight the NXT UK Takeover: Cardiff crowd on August 31st and claim the NXT UK Tag Team Championships.

If you’ve never had the chance to witness South Wales Subculture (Andrews & Morgan Webster’s Tag Team name) in action – you’re missing out. Highflyers – and hard hitters with a proud Welsh background. Andrews & Morgan Webster, who hail from Cardiff and Blaenau Gwent, respectively, will visit the Family Stand tomorrow afternoon, and have told us how much they’re looking forward to meeting City supporters in the concourse ahead of kick-off. They’ve made the Motorpoint go crazy – and are ready for another home coming welcome. If you’re a big wrestling fan, then this is an opportunity that you won’t want to miss. Congrats on the title win, lads!
