Cardiff apologise as undersoil heating fails

Cardiff City chairman Peter Ridsdale apologised to furious fans who saw yesterday's big Championship showdown with Leicester called off . . . because the club's undersoil heating wasn't working, reports Cardiff Online. Ridsdale confirmed the club had gone to great expense to install underground pipes to ensure games could always go ahead at the new Cardiff City Stadium.

But he revealed the system was not yet functioning properly and said he was angered by the situation.

Supporters were left frustrated by the cancellation and bemused that the club's new £50m stadium could be at the centre of such farcical scenes.
