Tim Hartley, chairman of the Trust made the following statement following the tragic death of Bluebirds fan Mikey Dye before the England v Wales game at Wembley on Tuesday night.

Tim, who was at the England-Wales match, said: “Fans are absolutely stunned. Mikey’s death is a tragedy for football and, more importantly, for his family and friends, and all Bluebirds fans are thinking of them. Mikey was well known for supporting Cardiff City and Wales at home and abroad. No one should ever fail to come home from a football match.”

We’ve also received the following email offering sincere condolences from the Swans’ Trust:

Hi Tim

I just wanted to drop you a short note to pass on the condolences of Swans Trust on behalf of all our members for the tragic and senseless loss of Mikey Day at the England v Wales game yesterday evening.

It is a sad world when someone goes to a football match to support his country and is denied the opportunity to come home in such a tragic way.

The thoughts of Swans fans everywhere are without a doubt this morning with the friends and family of Mikey and this is extended to the whole Cardiff City family who will feel sadness at the events.

Kind Regards


Phil Sumbler

Chairman, Swansea City Supporters’ Trust
