Cardiff City Have A Secret FA Cup Weapon!

Cardiff City Have A Secret FA Cup Weapon!

Cardiff City Have A Secret Weapon Up Their Sleeves…And On Their Legs!

FA Cup final 'minnows` Cardiff City will be using the dry land equivalent of the skin tight suits that recently revolutionised swimming for the big match tomorrow.



The team will be wearing high-tech Australian compression clothing called 'Skins` to squeeze an extra yard or two on the Pompey players.

The tops and half-tights will be worn underneath Cardiff`s playing kit and are, as their name implies, skin tight. They`re designed to compress muscle groups to trigger an acceleration in blood flow which means the Cardiff boys will be getting increased oxygen to their working muscles - resulting in an enhanced performance on the day.



The Championship mid-table underdogs believe the unique outfits could help them 'skin` the elite athletes from the Premiership - and make lifting the Cup a distinct possibility!

The team has used the clothing throughout its FA Cup campaign for both training and matches.

David Ling from Skins said: "We won`t be the first Aussie name to make an impact at an FA Cup Final - that was Craig Johnston - but we think we`ve got a great chance of helping Cardiff make history".
