Cardiff City’s Promotion Open-Top Bus Parade

The #CityAsOne has been the strap line leading up to this moment and now you can join in with the city and celebrate our home team securing automatic promotion last Sunday.

The Bluebirds will embark upon an open-top bus parade from Cardiff City Stadium at 3pm, before heading north along Leckwith Road. They’ll then turn into Cowbridge Road East and travel all the way along Cowbridge Road East, over Canton Bridge and onto Castle Street.

The team are expected to arrive at Cardiff Castle between 4.30pm and 5pm where they will be met by the Leader of Cardiff Council and the Lord Mayor. Neil Warnock and the players will then take to an open-air stage to address supporters.

The city is hosting a Car Free Day on Sunday which includes the family-friendly HSBC UK LET’s RIDE Cardiff bike ride. Both events happen around the castle and significant road closures will be in place throughout the day from 5.30am until 8pm.

Cardiff City Football Club supports the Council’s Car Free Day and is asking supporters to take thisopportunity to travel into the city by bus, train, on bikes or on foot to enjoy the event which runs from 10am-3pm.

Car Free Day has been planned for some time, so we also want to thank Cardiff Council for doing everything they can to let us bring our parade into the city centre on the same day.

The entertainment scheduled for Car Free Day will end before the parade reaches the castle, but families are welcome to come down and enjoy the fun before the open-top bus arrives in the city centre. You can read more about Car Free Day and the significant Sunday road closures by clicking here

Once the team arrive at the castle, Neil Warnock and the players will take to an open-air stage to address supporters amidst what we know will be a family-friendly, party atmosphere. Our supporters are invited to join us for the free festivities, at the castle or at any point they wish to see the Parade along the way.

We are conscious that there is limited room in front of the castle and safety on the day will be of paramount importance. We ask fans to remember this on the day especially as the area surrounding the castle will be fully utilised by Car Free Day events up until 3pm on Sunday.
