The football club has responded to offers of help from the Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust and the Cardiff City Supporters’ Club to ensure that Saturday’s game against Blackpool goes ahead by requesting that any volunteers turn up at the stadium at 9am on Friday and bring a shovel.
The current situation is as follows:
The pitch is fine. The team trained on it yesterday and will do so again tomorrow.
Inside the ground is fine. The walkways have been cleared of snow and, where affected, the ice has been broken down with chemicals. These areas have also been covered with sheets to prevent re-freezing. A worst-case scenario would see a limited number of fans in the Family Stand being moved to other seats.
Outside the ground needs further attention. Currently, around half of the ground is in an acceptable condition. The turnstiles, walkways and exit gates are the areas where more work is needed.
The council are going to plough and grit the car park tomorrow as well.
The situation will be reassessed on Friday afternoon. Trust members will be kept informed of any further developments.
