The friendly, which Wales won 3-0, was the first of its kind to be played at the club's new state-of-the-art Cardiff City Stadium and attracted a crowd of just 13,844. The cash-strapped Championship club, who are back in the High Court on March 10 over an ongoing unpaid tax bill, are in dialogue with the FAW and are due to meet with them on Tuesday afternoon to calculate the exact sum. The Association have a receipt for the amount of money owed although the cash has not yet been paid but the Bluebirds are adamant there is no dispute and the delay is simply due to admin procedures. A Cardiff statement read: "A meeting has been arranged for Tuesday to work out the exact amount owing, this is known as a reconciliation process. The club had to bear the cost of items including stewarding, policing and ticketing. The club also take a percentage of gate receipts. "The amount due to the FAW will be arrived at on Tuesday. Once that figure is settled the FAW will be paid the amount owing. Cardiff City were pleased and proud to host the Wales v Scotland international and we look forward to co-operating with the FAW in future."
