Could Cardiff City play four key dates away next season ?

‘ Could Cardiff City play four key dates away next season ? ‘

By Carl Curtis

The Premier League fixtures were released on Wednesday and they may have given us a clue where Cardiff City will play their first and last matches when the fixtures for the Championship season are announced next Wednesday June 22nd.

The Bluebirds and Swansea are usually kept apart on matchday with one side at home and the other is usually away.

There have been occasions when both are home but they are few and far between.

Swansea start their season away at Burnley on Saturday August 13th, the week after the Championship season kicks off, it’s likely Cardiff will be at home when Swansea travel to Turf Moor, meaning the week before, City are most likely to be away on August 6th as the first two games of the season are never both at home or both away.

Swansea are at home on Boxing Day, New Years Eve and on May 6th (the final day of the Championship season), suggesting that Cardiff will be away on those dates.

So could City start and end their season away from home and also be away on Boxing Day and New Years Eve ?

I hope that’s not the case but judging by Swansea’s fixtures for next season, I wouldn’t bet against that scenario.
