Cardiff City will be moving to Cwmbran Stadium to play all their home games for next season due to the new Ninian Park Stadium Project being built at Cardiff Athletic Stadium, Leckwith.
The Premier League team has been based at Leckwith Stadium for the past 15 years, and, during that time, have played many memorable games, including the 2-1 FA Cup victory over Premier League side Everton in 2003 when Cardiff were then a Combination League outfit, and the 4-0 mauling over Reading Royals to gain promotion into the Premier League.
Cardiff secretary Karen Jones said: "It is sad to leave our home ground that holds so many memories for us, and the staff who have been terrific in the past couple of turbulent months of finding a new home, but we have been assured that we will be moving into the new ground in time for the start of the 2008-09 season. Everyone at Cwmbran has made us very welcome and we hope that the people of Torfaen and Gwent will come out and support us and embrace women's football."
The club has a good association with Cwmbran as several players are from the area, including Welsh Internationals Sian Cheedy and Carla Parfitt.
Cardiff City LFC are preparing for the UEFA Championships in Croatia from the 8th to the 15th August with a pre-season friendly with Reading Royals on Sunday 5th August at the University Playing Fields, Llanrumney, Cardiff with a 2pm kick off before starting their league campaign away to Blackburn Rovers on August 19th.
