Chief Executive Levi Gill has appealed to all those attending Saturday’s game to help ensure it runs smoothly so that the Club can press forward with plans to increase capacity.
The Club has been given the green light to allow more fans to attend games at The Progression Solicitors Stadium in the future – but only if Saturday’s pilot event is a success.
Season Ticket holders are being welcomed back to the ground for the first time in nine months this weekend for the League Two fixture against Salford City.
The game will represent the first time that Bluebirds fans have been able to be in the stands to see the team play in the EFL following their historic promotion from the National League last term.
Behind the scenes a lot of work has been going on to ensure a safe and secure environment for all in attendance this weekend and it’s hoped that it’s the first step to allowing more fans back in to cheer the team on.
“There have been a lot of hours put in by a lot of people to make sure that Saturday can happen safely and that both staff and supporters are looked after properly,” Gill explained.
“We will undertake a review of the event after Saturday in conjunction with the Sports Grounds Safety Authority (SGSA), along with the match auditor who will be in attendance.
“Subject to it being deemed successful, we can look to increase our capacity to 1,506 for future games, which will allow us to accommodate Season Ticket holders and also make around 400 further tickets available for sale.
“We’re so excited to see supporters back on the terraces on Saturday and we now need to work together to ensure all safety protocols are followed which will allow more fans to come back in and enjoy the football with us in the near future.”
