  • Good parking nearby, an important international match, a passionate, well-behaved crowd, easy access, an excellent view of the pitch, what could possibly spoil the occasion? Chaotic, unorganised, 25-p...  read more »

  • We were visiting Cardiff for one day, sitting in the bar, watching the Wales - Moldova game and suddenly we realised that the game was near by. Because our son is a great fan of Gareth Bale, we wanted...  read more »
  • My partner and I I attended the Rod Stewart concert we had Diamond level tickets which meant food etc The service was non-existant, the drinks took over 45 minutes to arrive - the food took even longer, no-one was allocated to our table - we missed the mariachi band and the begining of Rod Stewarts daughter as we were still having our meals delivered!!! for the price it was abysmal thank goodness Rod Stewart was fantastic great example of a mis-managed event
  • I attended the fabulous Stereophonics gig last night. The bands were brilliant, but whoever was in charge of the organisation of the stadium wants sacking! The queues for EVERYTHING were horrendous, i.e.the loos, the food, the bars, the smoking area, everything. At one point heading to the portaloos outside gate 4, only one side of a double door was open (the "security" man by it said he wasn't allowed to open the other door) - people were rammed solid for about twenty minutes, unable to get in or out leading to many frustrated and angry people. I spoke to one man who had travelled up from Surrey who was so fed up being unable to get a drink or take a pee, that he was leaving half way through the gig. The whole situation was totally unsafe and it is lucky no major incident happened as a result. Having attended the Manic street preachers gig at Swansea liberty stadium last weekend, there was no comparison: there the queues were minimal, they had people walking around inside and out selling drinks as well as at the bars, the smoking areas were huge and easily accessible, as were the loos, altogether a much better run and enjoyable experience. Please sort it out Cardiff city football club!
  • I'm a bit biased, but CCS is a bright, modern new stadia in Cardiff, literally over the road from where Ninian Park used to be. Views are great from any of the seats and there is a wide range of facilities in the retail park for pregame food and drink. Inside the ground, the large concourse is fitted with plenty of TVs to allow fans to watch other matches and keep up to date with scores from other games. Away fans get looked after by the club too and do well to create a family atmosphere for everyone.
  • I was here for a music event. They put on a great show and I found it to be a comfortable, convenient venue.
  • Wanted to buy a plastic bottle of water to drink through out Sir Rod Stewart's concert. Water was £2 but the sales attendant took the top off the bottle & wouldn't sell it with the top!!!!! We didn't want to drink it all straight away. Really shoddy when other people are wondering around with glasses bottles. Needless to say you lost a number of purchases.
