City receive limited Cardiff allocation

City have been allocated just 1,481 tickets for the Severnside derby fixture at Cardiff City.

The Sky Bet Championship fixture will be played at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday, February 25th (12noon kick-off).

A club spokesman said: “The decision to reduce the ticket allocation was as a result of request from South Wales Police to hold an extraordinary SAG Meeting.

“In that meeting they produced evidence of recent disorder and asked for our allocation to be cut by 50 per cent. 

“The result of this was 1,481 tickets being allocated, albeit without any restrictions placed on the travel of our fans. 

“The club is extremely disappointed with the actions to date and believe it unfairly disadvantages our supporters and also our club for a key fixture.

“We will continue to challenge this legally, working with the EFL, Football Safety Officers Association and Sports Grounds Safety Authority, in a bid to receive more tickets for our supporters.”

Subsequently, with the game not being shown on Sky Sports, the club has requested a beamback. This will take place in the Sports Bar & Pizzeria at Ashton Gate, with full details to follow.
