High-flying City fans get a taste for travel
Hundreds of Cardiff City fans will eat for free this Saturday when family stand sponsor Peter’s hands them some Championship cheer.
As the Bluebirds faithful begin their 320-mile round-trip to Nottingham Forest they’ll be able to feast on a selection of Bedwas-baked savouries.
Peter’s marketing controller Clare Morgan said: “This is a gift from one top-of-the-table team to another; we know the supporters are City’s twelfth man and it’s right that they’re looked after.
“It’s a long trip to the City Ground but we hope that our pasties, rolls and slices will make it seem a little shorter.”
Peter’s staff will meet supporters at the Cardiff City Stadium this Saturday at around 9.20am, handing freebies to those setting off on the official Cardiff City Supporters Club coaches. Up to 400 fans are expected to leave from the stadium.
Peter’s, one of Wales’ top food firms, began sponsoring the Cardiff City Stadium Family Stand this season. The two-year deal saw Peter’s secure official partner status at the Football League Championship club. Along with the full Family Stand branding and fans’ product sampling there is Peter’s-related fun matchday activities for parents and children.
Peter’s supplies more than 70 other sports arenas including the Millennium Stadium, Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge, London Wasps’ Vicarage Road, Rugby League grounds, cricket, golf and racing venues.
Favourite products include the Steak & Brains Ale Pie, the XL Sausage Roll, the Cheesy Bean & Sausage Slice and the Corned Beef Pasty.
Cardiff City currently top the Football League npower Championship, with Forest in mid-table.
Further Peter’s Feed the Fans initiatives are planned in January (v Blackpool) and May (v Hull City).
