The Bluebirds are back in the EFL Championship for the 2019/20 season


The excitement for the 2019/20 ELF Championship season is rising. After last year’s rollercoaster season, The Bluebirds are back in the Championship, hoping to stay on top.

First team players Aron Gunnarsson and Kadeem Harris, have been with Cardiff City Football Club since July 2011 and January 2012 respectively, will depart South Wales as their current contracts have ended. Stuart O’Keefe has also left the club along with midfielder Tyrone Duffus. However, a great many of the key players have been retained for the 2019/2020 season including Sol Bamba, Joe Bennett, Bruno Ecuele Manga, Neil Etheridge, Callum Paterson and Joe Ralls.

This season Cardiff City will get to take on old rivals including Swansea City and Bristol City, in a local derby. After their successes in the Premier League, Cardiff has not faced Swansea since 2014.
