Cardiff City fans remembered their final game at Ninian Park yesterday, 11 years on.
An iconic ground in English Football was Ninian Park. Cardiff left their old home on April 25th 2009 and moved into their new Cardiff City Stadium.
It was a sad day for Bluebirds fans, made even more so by the scoreline – Cardiff welcomed Ipswich Town, who helped themselves to a 3-0 win in-front of a packed out, and emotional Ninian Park.

Fans that were there that day didn’t leave with the fondest memory of their old home – plenty of Cardiff fans took to Twitter to share their sadness over the Ninian Park send-off.
Now having spent over ten years at their new home, fans have never been so keen on the Cardiff City Stadium.
Here we take a look at Cardiff fans’ memories of that day, and their disappointment in not seeing a better conclusion to a fateful old football ground:
Such a strange day, nobody thought it would be the last game, then getting absolutely stuffed and the final celebrations as if we’d been promoted. Such an anti climax

It was horrible. We lost and said goodbye to our fair lady. I hate that day.

God I miss that ground, especially the Grange End. Necking your pint at the sound of Men of Harlech, quick slash in the portacabin toilet and walk up the steps before being hit by that unmistakable smell. The atmosphere carried us over the line on so many occasions. #NinianPark
