Matchday Music

Canton Stand Stage - Anaya and Churchdown

 Anaya and Churchdown are back onto the stage for a pre-match performance in the Canton Stand! 

Anaya and Churchdown are an upcoming duo based in South Wales. With different backgrounds in music, they both bring different styles to the table and aim to not be confined by one genre, but cross boundaries into country and rock. 

Anaya has been a Bluebird since 2017 and is influenced by rock and indie, whereas Churchdown is influenced by modern country and southern rock. They formed earlier this year and have already made radio stations across the world in countries such as New Zealand, USA and Europe. More big opportunities await them in 2024. 

Pre-Match Playlist - Rubin Colwill

City midfielder Rubin Colwill will be selecting our pre-match music this week!

The Welsh international has picked five tracks which will be played when the lads head out to warm-up. Get to your seats early to listen to Rubin's tunes!

Anti Discrimination
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.

City kick-off against Leeds at 3pm on Saturday.
