For the last 4 years SLD Wealth have held a hospitality box at Cardiff City Stadium. As keen supporters of the Bluebirds we see this as a brilliant way not only to support out club but to socialise with some of our clients in a less formal setting and give our Guest’s an experience they may not have otherwise had.
It is fair to say that as fans, we have had ups and downs over the last 4 seasons, after losing our place in the Premier league after one year in 2014 and subsequently having 6 different managers since then as well as some high profile club politics but, we have remained hopeful throughout.
This season has been exceptional for many reasons. Firstly, the result saw Cardiff City gain promotion to the Premier League. It had been a tense few matches as they remained neck and neck with Fulham in the league table. On the 6th May tension peaked as Cardiff drew 0-0 to Reading but luckily for us, Fulham hadn’t done enough against Birmingham, losing 3-1. News of Fulham’s loss filtered through before the final whistle and the promotion party began in Cardiff. It truly was a spectacle and one we were delighted to be part of and share with our guests.
The other fantastic thing about the season is that the SLD Wealth team have met some amazing people and got to know our clients on a more personal level. On occasions, thanks to some exciting matches and our brilliant hospitality, we even managed to convert some less enthusiastic guests into fans!
Our ethos is about building long term relationships with our clients and we hold various events throughout the year to show how much we value them.
As well making for highly enjoyable season, there is no doubt that the City of Cardiff itself will benefit financially from the great result. Higher attendances, match day spending and an influx of away fans into the city will all help to increase profits among local businesses. Some economists predict the promotion could be worth upwards of £75m to the local economy.

We believe football is far more than just a game. It unites people from all walks of life in a unique way. We hope that those who attended matches enjoyed the experience and we look forward to hosting more matches with clients in the future.
