Cardiff stadium given green light

Cardiff stadium given green light

After years of delays and worries over the propsed future of Cardiff City, the final major stumbling block now seems to have been overcome.

Council leader Rodney Berman broke the news:

'I am pleased to be able to announce that we now have a report from Council officers with a recommendation to Councillors that we now approve the Club's business plan. This report will now be duly considered by the Council in its December cycle of Scrutiny and Executive meetings. I see this as a huge step forward, not only for the Football Club but for the city of Cardiff as well.



Cardiff City Chairman Peter Ridsdale was delighted by the news and marked it as a crucial day for the club.

'Today's announcement is truly a milestone for Cardiff City Football Club. Many people have been involved in getting to the stage where the talk has now turned into reality. "

He also confirmed the huge strides made by the club recently adding:

'From a position where the club's very existence was in question, we can now look forward to the day when we will be playing in a new stadium which will give us a real chance to compete with the very best in professional football,'

Work on the stadium is expected to begin next year with March 2007 currently the target. Completion of the stadium would then be made in December of 2008 and Cardiff City may seek special dispensation to play the opening 10 games of the season away from home.
