Cardiff City FC Women | Success on three fronts
Before our game with Birmingham City, three of City's Women's sides will be showcasing their trophies pitchside at Cardiff City Stadium.
City's U16s have won the prestigious FAW Girls Cup during their first ever season. They could still add to this achievement too, with the league still to be decided.
Our U19 side won the Adran U19 South before defeating Wrexham in the National Final to be crowned U19 Champions in their first competitive season.
And just last Sunday, our senior side defeated Cardiff Met, 2‐0, to become FAW Women's Cup winners! We'd like to congratulate all of the players involved as well as coaches Iain Darbyshire, Scott Davies, Noah Bushby and all of the staff and volunteers involved with the teams!
Together Against Discrimination
Football is for everyone. We might support different teams, but football unites and inspires us.
It is a game with many opinions. But there is one on which we should all agree.
Racism and discrimination is not welcome in our game. So if you hear it, report it - whether in the street, at Cardiff City Stadium or online.
And when you see players taking the knee ahead of the game as a simple and peaceful act of protest this season, please respect their choice.
Because we are all Together Against Discrimination.
At 3pm, our last home match of the campaign will get underway!
We're looking forward to welcoming you to CCS for one final time this season, Bluebirds!
