Cardiff City vs. Swansea City | Your Matchday Guide
Ahead of the South Wales derby, this guide will give you the lowdown on how to get the most out of your matchday experience.
Alan Harrington & Chris Barker
On Sunday, we will be paying tribute to two Cardiff City icons who we sadly lost over Christmas and New Year.
A minute’s applause will be held ahead of kick-off this afternoon, with both sides wearing black armbands as a mark of respect. We ask supporters of Cardiff City and Swansea City to join the players during that period of reflection.
Due to the busy nature of this fixture, supporters attending Sunday's match are advised to allow extra time ahead of their arrival at CCS. For those parking, there will be no entry to CCS' car park after 11:30am.
