Blues return to Arms Park

Last updated : 07 February 2012 By Michael Morris
Cardiff Blues are returning to their previous home, The Cardiff Arms Park, to play Connacht this Friday.

Speaking of the announcement to move the match, Cardiff Blues CEO Richard Holland said,

"There are no long term plans in place to move back to the Arms Park permanently, however, we have listened to what our supporters are saying and it should be a great occasion to play this match at the Arms Park.

"Hopefully there will be a good crowd there on Friday night.

"Obviously Cardiff Blues still have a 20 year lease in place at the Cardiff City Stadium and moving the Connacht match to the Arms Park has no impact on this agreement."

"These are difficult economic times and we have to explore ways of creating a sustainable future for the region.

I'm not a follower of regional rugby but it's clear to see its not that well supported. Hopefully this will help attract some more interest and help get the numbers up at Cardiff City Stadium.

The Blues bring a decent revenue stream to Cardiff City and were part of the reason the stadium was approved. Don't just dismiss them.
