Club Reduce Food And Drink Prices

Cardiff City have listened to the fans who were upset at the high cost of food and drink at the new stadium and have made cuts already. The price of a pint has been reduced to a more realistic £3.00, a figure that matches what it was at Ninian Park. They will also have a pie and pint deal for £5.00. That’s a £1.30 saving on the initial advertised price

Chairman of the Trust, Paul Corkery, told the Echo

“We are pleased that Cardiff City and the stadium caterers have announced a reduction in some prices, which is to be welcomed. The club have clearly listened to issues raised by fans. However, we will still be seeking a meeting with the stadium catering operators to discuss food prices at the new stadium.

“It is important for everyone to see the big picture. Cardiff City fans have got a fantastic, new state-of-the-art stadium which I hope everyone is proud of, with facilities for fans which are hugely improved from Ninian Park.”

A statement from the club on the official website said that opening weekend events at the stadium had given them the chance to test the venue and get feedback from fans.

“A common point raised was the pricing structure within the food and beverage outlets.

“The feedback from our supporters was extremely positive, ranging from the quality of the seating and catering to the successful launch of our state of the art ticketing and turnstile operation.

“Following this feedback we as a football club have worked very closely with our catering partner Compass Group and have reviewed the opening pricing structure.

“It has been agreed that we will reduce the price of some of the key lines.”

Fans Happy With New Stadium. Food And Drink Prices Cause Only Complaints

Cardiff City supporters had their first chance to see inside the new stadium this weekend. Andy they were impressed. Comfortable seating, great views and it’s ours.

The underlying complaints made by most fans, including many Trust members was that the food and drink cost were too high.

The Trust have an open meeting on Monday with Alan Flitcroft from Cardiff City and this is sure to be one of the issues raised.

That is an issue I’m sure we can overcome. On the positive side the whole stadium is excellent and we are lucky to have such a good venue. Hands up up who never thought they’d see the day.
