Cardiff fans 'no' to groundshare

Cardiff fans 'no' to groundshare

A recent poll on the VitalCardiff site regarding a proposed groundshare agreement at Cardiff City's new Leckwith stadium revealed that most Cardiff fans were against such a plan.

There was much discussion between Cardiff fans as to whether a groundshare agreement with the Cardiff Blues rugby team would be beneficial to the club. Costs would be lowered and Peter Ridsdale promised to look into such a scheme but also pledged that it would be Cardiff City's stadium and loaned to Cardiff Blues, a different arrangement to that at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea.

49% of visitors to this site voted against the proposal, while 39% were behind it. 12 % were left undecided although these figures do not indicate the strength of opposition to the scheme from numerous sections of the Cardiff fanbase.

Recent public disputes between the clubs over attendances fuelled tension and the agreement would be seen as Cardiff City 'doing a favour' for the rugby club who are currently struggling to agree a new tenancy contract for the Arms Park.

Cardiff councillors are behind the scheme as it would allow compltion work on the Millenium Stadium and consequently allow the City to host major European finals such at the UEFA Champions League, for which the Millenium Stadium is illegible for at present.

I would have thought that for the benefit of sport as a whole in the city of cardiff that this would be an ideal situation..the chance to reduce your running costs must surely be of benefit to the team and the club...the opportunity then to be able to complete works that would enable european matches to be played at th emillenium stadium again surely has to benefit the whole economy of cardiff...life is moving forward..ground share schemes whether you like them or not will and are becoming the way forward... you guys need to work together for the future..not against each other I think...
