RESTART A HEART DAY
The Bluebirds are supporting Restart a Heart Day this matchday in partnership with Cardiff University’s student doctors and nurses.
Last year’s European Championships saw Christian Eriksen suffer a sudden cardiac arrest on the pitch. His life was saved by quick action from the players and medics; quick recognition of cardiac arrest, CPR and use of a defibrillator.
Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, including athletes and young people so it is important everyone knows the skills to recognise it, get involved and save a life.
Restart a Heart Day is the annual campaign to equip thousands of people with these lifesaving skills. The players will wear Restart a Heart t-shirts during their warm-up to raise awareness of the campaign. Scan the QR code and learn the basics of how to recognise and save someone having a cardiac arrest.
We would like to encourage everyone to learn these skills at an organised session. There will be drop-in sessions at Tesco Extra, Gabalfa, Asda, Cardiff Bay & St David’s Shopping Centre all day tomorrow (16th October) for those wanting to learn more.
Thank you / Diolch yn fawr.

Love Football. Protect the Game.
The FA, Premier League and EFL are together introducing new measures and stronger sanctions across the game to tackle the increased anti-social and criminal behaviours recently seen within football grounds and underline the importance of a safe matchday environment.
The new set of actions, which will be implemented across all English football leagues from the start of Season 2022/23 and backed by the Football Supporters’ Association, will target activity such as entering the pitch without permission, carrying or using smoke bombs or pyrotechnics and throwing objects - as well as drug use and discriminatory behaviour.
These acts are dangerous, illegal and have severe consequences. They have no place in football, or anywhere.
Any supporters who experience or witness any anti-social behaviour, directly or indirectly, should contact us by emailing email@example.com or texting 07554 158224, giving as much detail as possible (including row, seat number and a description of the incident).
Using video evidence and stewarding practices, we will do our utmost to identify anti-social individuals and ensure that they are no longer able to attend Cardiff City fixtures and are reported to the Police. We do not consider them supporters of our Club.
Find more information here.
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.
The Bluebirds take on the Sky Blues at 3pm on Saturday!
See you all at CCS!
