Extra stadium info – Cardiff City Stadium

The construction costs of the stadium, which is also known as a venue for concerts and rugby union, were £48 million. The Cardiff City Stadium opened with a football match between tenants Cardiff City FC and the Scottish side Celtic FC. Cardiff City, nicknamed The Bluebirds, were founded in 1899 under a different name. Since 1908, the home colours of the club have been blue and white. Between 2012 and 2015, the home colours of the club were red. The badge of Cardiff City FC was redesigned to include a red dragon. The Malaysian businessman Vincent Tan Chee Yioun, who became the owner of Cardiff City, was responsible for the change. Cardiff City played their first-ever Premier League match in August 2013. They drew an average attendance of 27,000 in 19 home games in their first Premier League season.
