Cardiff City fans have two reasons to celebrate, after adding to their promotion festivities by securing the championship on Saturday.

Now Cardiff Council are to mark the achievements with a day of celebration on May 5.

Council leader Heather Joyce said it was "only right and proper that the club will want to mark these two incredible achievements with a huge celebration" and described Cardiff winning the championship as "the icing on the cake."

She said: "The event, which will take place on May 5 and will include an open top bus tour from Cardiff city centre to the Bay will hopefully give everyone a chance to see the team and show their appreciation for their achievement as well as give us all another reason to celebrate."

Malky Mackay: 'Premier League will be huge challenge'

Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay says his side is already preparing for life in the top flight after securing promotion this week.

Yesterday's draw against Burnley means the Bluebirds will also be heading to the Premier League as champions.

It's a huge challenge. We are going into the one of the best leagues in the world. We are going to plan properly - that has started already and we will now put that in action. We will make sure the structure we have put in place keeps striding forward and keeps adding because change is constant.

– Malky Mackay, Cardiff City Manager
