Cardiff Blues acknowledge the open letter from CF10 Arms Park Rugby Trust and the concerns of all supporters regarding the failure to progress plans for Cardiff Arms Park. We are currently engaged in a new round of talks and all partners are committed to using their best endeavours to ensure that the optimum outcomes are achieved for professional and semi-professional rugby at this famous ground. We will discuss means via which shared objectives and progress towards achieving these objectives can be better communicated to stakeholders, but reiterate that we shall do so directly and not via social or other media.
Cardiff Athletic Club were invited to send a representative to the meeting but were unable to do so at short notice; they have however expressed a willingness to engage in future discussions.
We welcome the statement and its positive intentions and sincerely hope that these are translated into tangible progress in coming months. We particularly appreciate the willingness to explore how the communication with stakeholders can be improved and look forward to significant improvements in this respect. The issues raised in the open letter will continue to be on our agenda in the coming weeks and months and we shall continue to monitor developments closely on your behalf.
