Trust chairman Keith Morgan on behalf of the Trust board today welcomed details of the Fanzone that will be staged in Cardiff during the Euro championships.
Coopers Field will be venue for Wales’ group games and the Fanzone will continue if Wales makes progress in the tournament.
Keith Morgan said: “Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust has been involved in getting this in place, but have been unable to publicise it until it was officially agreed by all the organisers that it was going ahead, which only happened this morning.
“It should be a top class set up knowing the man and the company behind it , but will require the support of as many fans as possible attending it to ensure that it is financially viable. As a free entry event with the best screen in the country to show the games on , hopefully it will get close to the 6,000 attendance capacity even at such short notice.”

Keith Morgan has been appointed as chair of Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust following a meeting of the board.
Keith, an original member of the board, takes over from Tim Hartley, who has stepped down after seven years in the role.
Keith, who is a director of the accountancy firm, Mazars and a football finance expert, said: “I’m delighted in the confidence shown in me by the board and I’m looking forward to the challenge. Tim will be a hard act to follow.

Trust chair Tim Hartley was presented with a picture by Bluebirds legend Jason Perry to mark his seven years in the role.
The presentation to Tim, who stepped down as chair at the annual general meeting, was made during a fans’ forum at the Three Arches pub in Cardiff.
Jason and Rob Phillips, BBC Wales’ soccer commentator, took questions from Trust members on issues ranging from Joe Ledley and his participation in the Euros, through to the possibilities for manager and the lack of game time for Declan John.
A free raffle was held for members with Dai Hunt winning a signed Cardiff City shirt.
The Trust would like to thank both Jason and Rob for once again giving up their spare time to attend the fans’ forum.

Tim Hartley, chair of Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust, is stepping down after seven years in the role.
Tim, who is also leaving the board, has had to devote increasing time to his role as vice-chair of Supporters Direct, the UK umbrella board for trust.
Tribute has been paid to Tim, who will step down after the Trust’s annual meeting next week, by vice chair, David Craig on behalf of the board
David Craig said: “We would like to thank Tim for the enormous contribution he has made to the work and the success of the Trust over the past seven years.
“His commitment to the work of the Trust and the wider Trust movement has been exceptional and he has given the Trust an excellent profile in the media and wider.
“During his time as chair Tim has established good working relationships with Cardiff City while always representing the voice of our members, the fans of our beloved Bluebirds. And, of course, as chair Tim had a key role in the fundraising for the Fred Keenor statue.
“Tim will continue as a member of the Trust and we know that we can always turn to him if we need advice and help in the future.”
Tim Hartley said “It has been a privilege to have been Chair of the Trust for the last 7 years. There are still challenges ahead – we need to increase membership and improve communication.
“But let’s not forget our amazing successes. Anyone going to the Cardiff City Stadium will see our fantastic Fred Keenor statue and the Memorial Garden. We have lobbied on behalf of all fans, on pricing, policing and travel arrangements, on football governance and for a better future for the game we love. And let’s not forget the campaign for the return to blue. Together we have ensured that the club cannot ignore the views of the supporters. I’m pleased that our working relationship with Cardiff City’s management has improved markedly in recent times.”
