Cardiff Blues offer free tickets to NHS staff

Posted by

Cardiff Blues are giving 5,000 free tickets to NHS staff who are tackling the Coronavirus outbreak when rugby returns to the Arms Park.

The tickets will be available to workers within the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board and Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board and are valid for any games except Welsh derbies when action gets back underway.

Cardiff Blues have also revealed that the Arms Park will form part of the plans the NHS has for the Principality Stadium, while members of the club’s medical staff have also taken on frontline positions in the bid to help tackle the virus.

Chief Executive Richard Holland told the official club website, “These are unprecedented and uncertain times for all of but one thing that is certain is our admiration and gratitude to those who are currently working in the NHS.

“Some of our own medical staff are working on the front-line and many of us have family members doing the same. The bravery, selflessness and professionalism of those working in the NHS is an inspiration to all of us and we wanted to do something to thank them for their efforts.

“This is a small gesture of our gratitude towards them and on behalf of all of us at Cardiff Blues, and indeed the entire Cardiff Blues family, I would like to extend our sincere thanks to them and encourage you all to adhere to all the current Government advice.”
