Club Statement | 12/03/21
Cardiff City FC can confirm that it has launched a comprehensive investigation into non-recent allegations of bullying and poor practice relating to the Club’s Academy.
The Club’s Head of Safeguarding is conducting the investigation, in close liaison with the Football Association and the EFL and in line with the Affiliated Football Bodies process and statutory partner regulations. It is being overseen by the Club’s Board of Directors.
As a result, two members of the Club’s Academy staff have been suspended whilst this internal process continues.
Cardiff City Football Club takes all safeguarding reports extremely seriously and there are significant reporting mechanisms in place for these to be made, either via the Club’s safeguarding channels or those provided by national governing bodies and external support agencies.
No further comment will be made until this process is complete.
