Cardiff City Stadium welcomes Premier League football for the first time in its history today when Manchester City travel to Wales to take on the Bluebirds.

The last time they met was in the FA Cup in 1994 when Cardiff beat the side 1-0.

If Craig Bellamy is chosen in the side, he'll face his former club where he spent two seasons between 2009-2011.

27,000 fans are expected to descend on the capital today and the British Transport Police have stepped up their presence on public transport ahead of the busy football season.

The match kicks off today at 4pm.

Over 2,000 people are expected to take part in a walk through Cardiff today to celebrate 100 years of the bluebird logo for Cardiff City FC.

The supporters group Bluebirds Unite will walk from Cardiff Castle to the stadium ahead of the club's Premier League debut at home to Manchester City.

In 2012, Cardiff City FC was rebranded by the club's Malaysian owner Sri Vincent Tan that saw the side's kit change from blue to red and the traditional bluebird crest replaced with a dragon.

Bluebirds welcome West Ham

It's a big night for Cardiff City as they host West Ham in the first leg of the Championship play-off semi final.

West Ham finished two points behind Southampton in the race for an automatic promotion spot. The Bluebirds kept their hopes alive after Saturday's 2-1 win at Crystal Palace secured sixth place and the final spot in the play-offs.

If Cardiff win against West Ham, they will face either Birmingham or Blackpool in the play-off final at Wembley.
