City support Shelter Cymru
The football community knows the importance of home. But this year, thousands of people will be spending Christmas in hostels, on friends’ sofas, or even sleeping in freezing cars.
This is something we can’t ignore. So, we are making a stand. We’re proud to support Shelter Cymru by wearing our away colours this Boxing Day, to show our support and raise vital funds for those with no safe place to call home.
Shelter Cymru’s frontline services are braced for an incredibly tough winter as the cost-of-living crisis bites, with 1 in 4 people in Wales afraid they may become homeless within a year.
Whether you are watching at the ground or following along from home this Christmas, join the movement fighting to defend the right to a safe, secure and affordable home for everyone.
Get involved by swapping your home colours for an away or third kit and text ‘HOME’ to 70480 to donate £10. You can also donate by clicking here.
Every penny donated will be spent in Wales, and will help bring someone in our nation a step closer to finding, and keeping, a home. You can learn more about Shelter Cymru and the work they do here.

Audio Description Commentary Service
Cardiff City Football Club is delighted to continue the audio description commentary service at Cardiff City Stadium to promote access for all football fans this season. The service, provided by Alan March Sport Ltd, will be available at all future home fixtures also.
The free to use service for blind and vision impaired spectators will be available to both home and visiting fans, with our team of trained audio describers keeping up with play to the second to ensure listeners know exactly where the ball is and what is happening on the pitch.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

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.
We get underway at 5:15pm on Monday!
See you at CCS for our festive fixture, Bluebirds!
