Director of Rugby Mark Hammett has confirmed Matthew Rees will captain Cardiff Blues this season as the countdown to the new campaign continues to gather pace.
Cardiff Blues Supporters' Club (CBSC) is the official supporters' club for the Cardiff Blues.
The club is run by a committee of volunteers and seeks to encourage support for the Cardiff Blues, at home and away. We arrange trips to some of the Blues away games, organise events for our members and their guests and raise money for our charity including our adopted charity Ty Hafan (more than £25,000 for charity raised to date!)
Blues star Robin Copeland is our dedicated Supporters' Club Ambassador and we've already linked up with him to discuss how we can improve player-supporter relations.
For the first time this season we have a bar in the Fanzone which has been set aside form supporters - the Jack Matthews Supporters' Club Bar which is under the South Stand. It's not just for CBSC members - all are welcome, home and away supporters alike. We can be found there before all home games to take memberships, trip bookings or just for information about what's coming up. It's also a great place to get together with friends and family for a pre match drink. We'll be holding our Player of the Month awards there throughout the season too!
Coming up this season we have a number of away trip, the first of which is to Exeter in the Heineken Cup, as well as our Player of the Year Dinner which will take place in the Autumn, and a number of other events. Look out on our website and our social media sites for more up to date information as the season progresses!
