Canton Stand - The Zeds
Playing in the Canton Stand before kick-off are The Zeds! Brothers Craig and Lee Jenkins have played in bands together since they were in their teens, coming together to create The Zeds in 2017.
Drummer Colin Parsons joined a band called The Dead Zeds over 15 years ago and played with Craig Jenkins and his best friend Matt Harvey for several years. The Dead Zeds wrote and recorded their own songs and toured all over the country before moving into the cover band scene. The band eventually broke up, and Matt sadly passed away.
This pushed Craig, Colin, and Lee to form The Zeds – playing pubs, clubs and private events across Wales and the South West and organising and headlining the yearly “Matt Fest” festival in honour of their fallen friend and band mate.
Steven Hall joined the band on bass in 2019, and his experience, professionalism and enthusiasm pushed The Zeds to massively expand their set.
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 the Tangerines at 3pm on Saturday!
We're looking forward to seeing you there, Bluebirds!
