Cardiff City Stadium
Chasetown FC fans could get a chance to see Cardiff City’s new record signing in action when the two sides meet in a pre-season friendly. Michael Chopra, who spent part of last season on loan with the Bluebirds, is set to complete a £3million move from Sunderland today. His first opportunity to pull on the Cardiff colours as a permanent member of the playing squad would come against Charlie Blakemore’s men on July 10. The match will be the first time the Welsh side will kick a ball in their new Cardiff City Stadium, with only a legends game taking place before Chasetown’s visit. Meanwhile, the Scholars have laid on extra coaches to take fans to the game. For more information, call 01543 682222.
