Restart a Heart Day
The Bluebirds are supporting Restart a Heart Day this matchday in partnership with Cardiff University healthcare students.
Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, including athletes and young people. 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 skills.
At half-time, we’ll be showing a video on the big screen of the basics of these lifesaving skills. We would like to encourage everyone to learn these skills at an organised session or attend a refresher session for those already taught. You can find a local course by visiting the British Heart Foundation, Calon Hearts or St John Ambulance websites.

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 QPR at 7:45pm on Wednesday!
We're looking forward to welcoming you to CCS again, Bluebirds!
