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.
