Stoke Bartley

Keep an eye out for Cardiff City's own Club mascot, Bartley Bluebird! He will be out and about around CCS ahead of kick-off and during the match on Tuesday evening, and can't wait to see all of the City supporters who have come to support the boys! Make sure that you say hello to Bartley if you see him!

You may have noticed some new faces around the stadium lately. Our new team of assistants were hard at work at our last home fixture against Bristol City 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 for our Stoke City fixture. 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.

This season's ninth issue of Cardiff City FC's official matchday programme, The Bluebird, is out ahead of the match, with featuring an exclusive feature interview with new Cardiff City manager Neil Harris! 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!

Fulham timetable

Returning to play the USW Stand ahead of kick-off on Tuesday evening will be acoustic duo Bowen & Moore!

This is one performance that you don't want to miss if you're in the USW Stand on Tuesday evening...

Cardiff City FC's Matchday Veterans Hub will be running in Block 111 of the Ninian Stand on Tuesday evening, 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.
