Ninian Park - Cardiff City

Cardiff City - Ninian Park


Sadly I never visited Ninian Park when it existed as a football ground, but my only visit to Ninian Park is what is there now. I went there back in March of 2015 when I stayed over the night in Swindon with my mate for Swindon away with Gillingham. Before we stayed over, we noticed that Cardiff was only an hour away on the train, so the night after Swindon away, decided to make a day of it in Wales, do a tour of the Millennium Stadium and then head off to Cardiff. Luckily we got a free tour of Cardiff City's current ground now, the Cardiff City Stadium, and of course the new ground is pretty much across the street to where Ninian Park is/was. Ninian Park was built in 1910 and the club stayed there until 2009. The last ever game at Ninian Park was a 3-0 defeat for the Bluebirds against Ipswich Town which actually saw Roy Keane win his first match in charge of Ipswich at the time. The last ever player to score there in a Cardiff City shirt was scored by none other than Ross McCormack, in which it finished 3-1 to Cardiff against Burnley.

All the pictures above of Ninian Park aren't mine, so copyright to those that took them pictures. Some great pictures of Ninian Park though.


When I did visit Ninian Park back in March of 2015, I didn't take many photos at the time, but basically what is there now is housing. So here are my 2 pics of what is Ninian Park now;
