Trophy delight for Tan Sri Vincent's Bluebirds


Interview with Berjaya Group founder Tan Sri Vincent Tan.

PETALING JAYA: Cardiff City Football Club, the Welsh-based side owned by Tan Sri Vincent Tan, has enjoyed success and progression on several fronts during the 2023-2024 season.

The first team have made encouraging progress to finish 12th in the EFL Championship (the second tier of the English football pyramid) but there was also title-winning triumph for the Bluebirds' women's team and Under-15 Academy boys side.

Cardiff City women's team completed a first-ever ‘treble’, lifting the League title for the second consecutive year, complemented by both domestic cups. They will now go on to feature for a second consecutive season in the UEFA Champions League as the sole representative from Wales.

"We couldn’t be prouder of our women's team and their achievements again this season.

"Success is addictive and contagious. I hope that the team’s accomplishment inspires the younger female age groups we have at Cardiff City and I look forward to watching us play again in the Champions League later this year," said Vincent.

There was further good news from the Bluebirds' Academy set-up as their Under-15 boys side lifted the EFL Floodlit Cup in front of a home crowd at Cardiff City Stadium.

City saw off Burton Albion 2-1 in the final.

With investment in a new training facility for the Club’s Academy already bearing fruit, it appears that the future is bright for the men's and women's game in the Welsh capital.
