Description: Cardiff City Stadium

Opened in 2009, the new Cardiff City Stadium saw its first expansion very soon, following the club's promotion to the Premier League and takeover by controversial billionaire Vincent Tan. His plan is to expand the structure from its initial 27,000 to 38,000 seats.

Planning permission for the first phase (adding a second tier to eastern Ninian Stand, closest to the historical former stadium Ninian Park) was granted in October 2013 and first preparatory works began in November that year. The addition of over 5,000 seats goes without interfering with season games. Only after fixtures end in May 2014 will the roof be taken off and replaced by new one covering both tiers.

After the first phase similar additions are expected on both end zones, raising capacity to the planned 38,000.
