The following safety information has been received from the football club with regard to pre and post-match car parking arrangements at the new Cardiff City Stadium:
“No vehicle access into the stadium car parks will be allowed for a period of 15 minutes prior to kick-off.
“No vehicle movement will be allowed in the stadium car parks for a period of 15 minutes after the final whistle.
“While these times are set as standard, they can be altered at the discretion of the Safety Officer or the Police Match Commander for operational or safety reasons.
“The stadium car parks will remain open until the final whistle is blown. Thereafter, the club has a duty of care to supporters who are leaving the stadium on foot, and allowing people to walk through moving vehicles could be potentially dangerous.
“Therefore, if fans wish to leave the stadium car park early, they can do so, but those leaving following the final whistle can only move their vehicles after a period of 15 minutes or whenever the Safety Officer determines it is safe for them to do so.”
If, after Wednesday’s friendly match against Celtic, you have any comments that you would like your Supporters’ Trust respresentatives to pass on to club officials about these arrangements, please e-mail us at:
