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.

Phil Dwyer | Mr Cardiff City
Saturday would have marked the 70th birthday of Cardiff City’s record League Appearance Holder, Phil Dwyer.
Phil (affectionately known as Joe by many), passed away at the age of 68 last December. His playing legacy will forever stand as the benchmark to which young Bluebirds must aspire.
City supporters are encouraged to stand for a minute’s applause in memory of Phil in the 70th minute of today’s game.
