Cardiff City FC was formed in 1899 as a way of keeping players from the Riverside Cricket Club together and in shape during the winter months. The football club started by playing friendlies at their Sophia Gardens ground – coincidently very close to the site of Glamorgan Cricket Club’s current stadium.
Cardiff City is the only non-English side to have won the FA Cup, a famous 1-0 victory against Arsenal on St George's Day (April 23rd) in 1927 saw Cardiff City become the only team to have ever taken the famous trophy out of England. The game was also notable as the first FA Cup Final to be broadcast by BBC Radio.
The 1920s was a decade in which Cardiff City were one of the strongest sides in the English league. The club finished runners-up to Huddersfield Town in 1924 in the First Division on Goal Average; this was followed by an FA Cup Final defeat to Sheffield United in 1925 before the famous victory over Arsenal two years later.
The Bluebirds reached a third FA Cup Final in 2008 narrowly losing 1–0 to Portsmouth in the final. After coming close several times Cardiff won promotion to the Premier League in 2013 as comfortable winners of the Championship.
Famous Cardiff City supporters include the late “Zulu” and “Guns of Navarone” star Sir Stanley Baker, comedian Griff Rhys Jones, all of the Super Furry Animals (allegedly) and former leader of the British Labour party Neil Kinnock. An eclectic mix if ever there was one?
Having played in blue and white for more than a century, The Bluebirds now wear red and black. It was the idea of the club’s latest owners – red being a lucky colour in their native Malaysia.
