Make sure that you say hello to Bartley if you see him!

Here to help

You may have noticed some new faces around the stadium lately. Our new team of assistants were hard at work during our last few home fixtures as part of our goal to really make sure we are supporting City fans the way you support the Club. 

Our group of “Here to Help” assistants will be your first point of contact upon arrival, ready and waiting to welcome you to the home of the Bluebirds on Saturday afternoon. They will be stationed outside Cardiff City Stadium well ahead of the crowd, before making their way into the concourse half an hour before the match kicks off. 

Lee Tomlin

This season's 11th issue of Cardiff City FC's official matchday programme, The Bluebird, is out ahead of the match, with featuring an exclusive feature interview with City forward Lee Tomlin! The Bluebird is available around CCS ahead of kick-off, so why not pick up your copy ahead of heading into the ground for only £3!

Cardiff City FC's Matchday Veterans Hub will be running in Block 111 of the Ninian Stand on Saturday afternoon, opening its doors once again as it becomes a regular feature at CCS. The Hub will be there to provide a safe space for Veterans and members of the Armed Forces Community to get together pre-match. This new community feature will be available as soon as the gates open and is available to those with tickets from Block 118 – 205. More information can be found at


It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and Santa Claus is here in the concourse of our Family Stand on Saturday for our last home fixture before Christmas Day! Father Christmas is ready and waiting in his Grotto, with gifts to hand out to our Junior Bluebirds, and he won’t be on his own!

Hungry after their long journey of bringing Santa and his sleigh to visit us all at Cardiff City Stadium, a couple of Santa’s reindeer are joining us in the concourse of our Family Stand, too! If you’re in the Family Stand, come and say hello to Santa Claus and his friends to be in for a special treat!
