Cardiff City Lotto has been launched to give fans of the club the chance of winning millions of pounds and at the same time contribute directly to the development of the club's youth programme.
Cardiff City Football Club has always been centred around the local community. Some of the great players and teams throughout the club's history have been built on local boys and local talent. We have a proud history of nurturing young stars of the future and continue to maintain our commitment to youth development by doing it in the correct way.
The Academy identifies, recruits and coaches aspiring professionals so as to maximise their potential under the very best professional development programmes. In addition to their football development, Cardiff City FC Academy works closely with schools and colleges to ensure that the players receive the very best education during their time with the club.
Those who make the grade at the end of their school-boy days are offered every chance of breaking into the first-team. Those who don't make the grade are given the correct support for pursuing their careers elsewhere, be it in, or outside of the football environment.
