Bluebirds given green light

25 Apr 2008 - 13:59:28

The Football Association has confirmed that Cardiff City will be allowed to play in next season's UEFA Cup if Dave Jones' side beat Portsmouth in the FA Cup Final.

Under current FA regulations, the Bluebirds would not automatically qualify for Europe by winning the FA Cup because as a Welsh side they would normally qualify via the Welsh Cup.

However, an FA statement read: "The Board has given full approval for Cardiff City to participate in next season's UEFA Cup as one of England's representatives, should they win this season's FA Cup.

"It was decided that the Welsh national anthem would also be played ahead of the game."
