  • New Light On Blues' Arms Park Offer

    It turns out that the lease agreement Cardiff Blues were looking for from Cardiff Athletic Club, their landlords at Cardiff Arms Park, was merely a three-year option to fully formulate a development plan for the centrally-located property rather than the 150-year, £8m commitment that the Welsh region’s statement last week detailed. The Blues' current lease on the ground in the centre of Cardiff expires in 2022. The rugby Club threatened to find an alternative home ground last week after being...
