Cardiff Set For New Training Ground

Cardiff Set For New Training Ground

Cardiff City look set to end their training ground woes as they prepare to sign an agreement granting them high quality training facilities at the Vale of Glamorgan resort.


The Cardiff Blues rugby side, and the Welsh national football and rugby squads already use the facility and Cardiff City look set to join them in the immediate future.


The move brings to an end a frustrating time for the players and managerial staff. At times last season, there were no adequate training options as the squad was forced to travel to Trefforest, Leckwith or Cardiff University at short notice.


In the past, the lack of a training ground has been blamed for poor performances and a lack of ability to persuade potential new signings. Peter Ridsdale confirmed the deal, telling the SW Echo:



'We have reached agreement and contracts are due to be signed quickly.'

'Our manager, Dave Jones, is ecstatic that we have at least found a home for training.'


'This is a major step forward for Cardiff City. There is no doubt this club needs a training ground.'





Planning permission was previously declined for the site, but a new look proposal looks set to be given the go-ahead. The Bluebirds, although sharing the site, will have exclusive use of their own pitches, offices and changing rooms.



Good news for the club as we continue to build on and off the field. And whatever happens, we should not at least have to hear the same tired old excuses for any poor performances!
