New stadium effect

City's move from their old Ninian Park home wasn't welcomed by all with open arms - some preferring the atmosphere and hostility associated with the old stadium. Ninian shut its doors for the final time in 2009, having been Cardiff's home for 99 years.

The new Cardiff City Stadium has been good for the club though, with attendances increasing 74% and average league position improving by 18 places from 43rd (23rd in the Championship) to 25th (5th in the Championship). The 10th anniversary of Cardiff City's new stadium saw the club play their first season in the Premier League.
