Cardiff fans are loving taking Swansea’s place in the Prem

Cardiff secured their 2nd place finish in the Championship on the final day of the season after a 0-0 draw with Reading, assuring the Bluebirds of Premier League football next season.

Neil Warnock’s side pipped third placed Fulham to the final automatic promotion spot after Fulham lost their final fixture 3-1 to Birmingham.

There were jubilant scenes at Cardiff City Stadium at the final whistle as ecstatic fans invading the pitch to  celebrate with the players.

The club have arranged a celebratory open-top bus parade this Sunday to mark their return to England’s top division.

And to put the cherry on the cake for Bluebirds supporters, just a few days after Cardiff secured their place in the Premier League, their local rivals Swansea City all but guaranteed their relegation to the Championship, with their home defeat to fellow strugglers Southampton.

Barring a 10 goal swing in the final fixture, Swansea will play in the Championship next season much to the delight of Bluebird fans who were quick to celebrate the Swan’s demise on social media.
