Supporter Information: FIFA World Cup Play-Off Final
As excitement builds for the FIFA World Cup Play-Off Final at Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday, 5 June (KO 5:00pm), it’s important for The Red Wall to remember the following Supporter Information.
Cymru are yet to know who they will play in the Final as Scotland and Ukraine go head-to-head in their Play-Off Semi-Final on Wednesday, 1 June.
Whoever the opponent, the sold-out Play-Off Final will be one of Cymru’s biggest matches in recent years and it’s important that fans arrive as early as possible at Cardiff City Stadium on the day of the game.
It’s also incredibly important that you download your digital match ticket prior to travelling to the game in order to avoid queues outside the venue.
Digital ticket delivery emails for the Play-off Final were sent to fans who had purchased tickets via this method from 9:00pm on Monday, 23 May. Fans should download their tickets prior to travelling to Cardiff City Stadium for the match. This will avoid queues outside the venue.
IMPORTANT TICKET INFORMATION
The unauthorised resale of tickets is a criminal offence. Measures will be taken against those who are found to have bought tickets and sold on.
Those who have purchased tickets on the secondary market will be refused entry.
Tickets can be used by friends or family members in line with the FAW’s terms and conditions of ticket sale, available at faw.cymru/tickets.
NO FAN ZONES IN CITY
Fans are advised not to travel to the Cardiff City Stadium without a ticket and there will be no fan activity outside the stadium.
There is no public screening or fan zone showing the match within the City Centre and fans without tickets are advised watch at home or in the pubs.
ADDITIONAL STADIUM SECURITY
For the FIFA World Cup Play-Off Final, additional security perimeters will be introduced outside the stadium. Fans should therefore ensure their early arrival at the stadium as it may take longer than usual gaining access to the venue.
There is no safe use of pyrotechnics in spectator areas at football events with their use having many health risks and dangers such as loss of sight, limb or digit removal due to their explosive power.
Being in possession of a pyrotechnic device at a football match or attempting to bring such a device into a football stadium, is a criminal offence under the Sporting Events Act 1985. Any person committing such an offence faces an FA Wales ban, probable arrest and a minimum 3 year Football Banning Order.

Car parking at Cardiff City Stadium is limited and available on a first come first served basis.
The cost of parking is £10 and it is recommended that fans arrive at the stadium with the correct amount.
There's also very limited number of accessible parking bays which will be available on a first come first served basis.
Entry to the car park will be via main entrance off Leckwith Road and access will close at 3:00pm or as soon as the car park is full, whichever is the earliest.
Fans are advised to utilise city centre parking and make their way to the stadium on foot. Car park info from Visit Cardiff can be found here. Due to other events in the city, car parks may be busier than normal so it is recommend that you travel and park as early as you can on matchday.
Our new FAW Ambassadors team will once again be present outside Cardiff City Stadium.
Made up of local volunteers, students and the Fan Experience Company team, the Ambassadors’ aim will be to welcome you, answer your questions and make you don’t miss out on any of the magic planned for what we hope will be a historic occasion for Welsh football.
Highly visible in their bright pink fleeces, you will find our FAW Ambassadors at Cardiff Central Railway Station and in the immediate stadium vicinity.
AUDIO DESCRIPTION COMMENTARY SERVICE
The FAW are to launch an audio description commentary service at the Cardiff City Stadium for the upcoming Cymru International match.
The free to use service for blind and vision impaired spectators will be provided by Alan March Sport Ltd and will be available to fans with trained audio describers keeping up with play to the second to ensure listeners know exactly where the ball is and what is happening on the pitch.
To register your interest and book a receiver for the forth coming matches, email PAWB@faw.co.uk
You will need to provide your name, phone number and ticket information (Stand, block, row and seat) and your receiver will be delivered by a steward prior to kick off.
It will be possible to request a receiver on the day by speaking to a steward at the stadium. Please note receivers are subject to availability. We advise users to bring their own headphones to ensure both comfort and hygiene.
Entertainment at the stadium commences from the time that the gates open at 3:00pm and there’s plenty on offer to get you ready for kick off. Check out the information below.

Fans are urged to make every attempt to be in their seats by 4:15pm to show the Wales squad support when they come out onto the pitch for their pre-match warm-up.
Make sure that you’re in your seat for Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau as the fans will sing it unaccompanied and it really shouldn't be missed as The Red Wall create a wall of sound.
