Cardiff City Stadium
AFTER 99 YEARS at the dated Ninian Park, Cardiff moved to the multi-purpose Cardiff City Stadium in the summer of 2009.
The Cardiff City Stadium, which is one of the few grounds in the country to have not sold its naming rights, was built at a cost of £48 million and can house 28,000 spectators.
The Bluebirds' new home is completely enclosed with away supporters located in the corner of the Ninian and Grange Stands which can accommodate 1,800 spectators.
Meanwhile, the stadium has been built so it can be easily extended by adding additional blocks to take the capacity up to around 38,000.
Take the M6 Southbound before branching off at Junction 8 and onto the M5.
Continue forward on the M5 and past Junction 4A before leaving the motorway at Junction 8 and taking the second exit onto the M50.
At the end of the M50 take the first exit onto the A40 towards the A449 before remaining in the right-hand lane and joining the M4.
Leave the motorway at Junction 33 then at the roundabout take the first exit onto the A4232.
Continue forward for six miles before branching left and taking the first exit onto Leckwith Road - B4267. At the traffic lights turn right and the stadium will be facing you.
The Bluebirds provide a limited number of matchday parking for away supporters and this is located in the away compound of the ground which can be accessed via Sloper Road (next to the HSS Hire Shop). Tickets cost £8 per car.
Meanwhile, there is some further parking for away fans at Bessemer Road's Wholesale Market car park which is less than a five minute walk away from the stadium and costs £5.
The Cardiff City Stadium is 155 miles away from the Britannia Stadium and will take approximately 2 hours 44 minutes to reach, depending on traffic.
GOING BY TRAIN:
Supporters are advised to take the train direct to Grangetown station from Cardiff Central, with Arriva Trains Wales operating a half an hour service.
On leaving the station you can reach the ground by turning left, crossing the main round and then turning right into Sloper Road to arrive at the protected compound for away supporters. It is an 18 minute walk from station to stadium.
A taxi from the train station to the stadium should cost between £5 and £10.
Please note that away supporters are advised not to transfer via Canton.
Cardiff City have a variety of activities going on at the stadium to ensure fans have the most enjoyably matchday experience possible.
