CARDIFF CITY OPEN TRAINING DAY 2016: A TIMELINE

We enjoyed a superb day at Cardiff City Stadium on Thursday, 4th August as the Bluebirds first team squad trained in front of the Cardiff City supporters.

A jam packed day began once the Cardiff City SuperStore opened at 9am, with queues starting outside Gate Two from the early morning.

Thursday evening’s edition of match preview show In The City, our first of the new campaign, was filmed almost immediately as the players finished training with Jazz Richards making his ITC debut. Bluebirds No.10 Lex Immers joined Jazz and host Amy McNiven for the show, answering questions sent in via our Social Media channels. You can watch this interview in full on Cardiff City Player HD from Thursday evening.
