On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, on the 11th month, Cardiff City FC Foundation and Cardiff City Football Club remembered those who made the ultimate sacrifice and faced brutalities during a time of universal tragedy.

The service at Cardiff City Stadium included veterans involved with the Foundation's Positive Pathways project and Cardiff City FC's Matchday veterans Hub, members of The Royal Welsh Regiment, Hafal and Rhondda Veterans Hub.

A Remembrance Day poem was read by John, a veteran supported by the Foundation, followed by a rendition of 'The Last Post' ahead of the 2 minute silence.

Support For Veterans Around Cardiff

Weekly sessions at Cardiff City Stadium, as well as wellbeing phonecalls support veterans who are at high risk of social isolation and loneliness.  

The project uses the power of Cardiff City FC to connect with veterans and provide structure and support through a range of activities that improve physical and mental wellbeing.

Wales has one of the largest proportions of veterans in the UK with 7% of all veterans currently living here. Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan has a veterans’ population of around 27,320 and 8% suffer with mental health.
