Cardiff City have given supporters a huge boost by announcing that supporters will be allowed back inside Cardiff City Stadium for the first time in 17 months for the friendlies against Southampton and Newport County.
The Bluebirds’ last home game in front of supporters was February 29, 2020, a 2-2 draw with Brentford.
It has been a long, arduous time since that game, with supporters having to watch on through streaming services and missing the much-loved camaraderie in the terraces.
Now, though, the news they have all been waiting for has been announced.
City take on Premier League opposition Southampton on July 27 (7pm kick-off) before they welcome League Two outfit Newport County on July 31 (1pm kick-off) and supporters will be able to attend in person.
The club have confirmed that, in line with Welsh Government restrictions, capacity will be restricted to 8,000 per game.
Supporters are encouraged to purchase tickets within family or support bubbles, with a maximum of six tickets allowed per transaction, and adults will have to pay £10 while children under the age of 16 will cost £5.
