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.

Mark McGuinness

City kick-off against the Hornets at 3pm on Saturday!

See you at CCS, Bluebirds!
