New stand to have red seats

Last updated : 16 May 2014 By Michael Morris

Director Steve Borley has revealed via Twitter that the seats being installed in the new stand at Cardiff City Stadium will 'mainly be red'.

In response to questions and comments fired at him Borley continued

'The owner specified he wanted red in the design and we come up with a design to suit.

'It won't be a block of red seats, wait until you see the images before judging.'

The new extention on the ground (pictured below) will raise capacity to around 33,000 and will be open for the UEFA Super Cup Final in August. The Super Cup features the winners of the Europa League against the winners of the Champions League.

This year it will be an all Spanish affair with Sevilla, who won the Europa League this week, facing either Athletico Madrid or Real Madrid at Cardiff City Stadium on August 12th.
