City refused further Cardiff tickets

City will not be receiving any more tickets for Sunday’s Sky Bet Championship match at Cardiff City (12noon kick-off).

The club received a limited allocation of just 1,481 tickets following the South Wales Police request for an extraordinary Safety Advisory Group (SAG) meeting.

Subsequently, working with the EFL, Football Safety Officers Association and Sports Grounds Safety Authority, the club legally challenged this decision.

Unfortunately, the SAG are refusing to change their ruling and, therefore, no further tickets will be released for away fans.

A club spokesman said: “We are extremely disappointed with both the original decision and, following detailed dialogue with all parties and the change in fixture time to Sunday at midday, the refusal to increase the allocation as we firmly believe it unfairly disadvantages our supporters and the team for a very important fixture.

“We remain in contact with the EFL and will be looking at how we approach these games differently in future to ensure our fans are treated fairly.”

Fans without tickets are urged not to travel to Cardiff on Sunday. The club will be holding a beamback at Ashton Gate, with free entry. Doors open at 11am.
