Inter Cardiff represented Wales three times in the UEFA Cup. In the 1994–95 tournament they lost 0–8 over two legs to Katowice of Poland in the Preliminary round. They also played Scottish giants Celtic F.C. in the 1997–98 season (when known as Inter Cable Tel), losing 8–0 over the two legs. In 1999–00 they lost 1–2 to Gorica of Slovenia over two legs in the 1st qualifying round.

Since starting my hopping adventures last season, I’ve managed to visit the grounds of Bridgend Street and Ely Rangers in Cardiff (Ely Rangers are technically in VoG and well worth a visit if you’ve not been – rural setting, bar and pitch side picnic tables, elevated spectator area, also a pint of beer is included in the entry price…), and I’m aiming to visit the grounds of Caerau Ely and Cardiff Met this coming season.
We also work with a number of independent charitable organisations who can offer help or answer any questions you may have.
It seems that Cardiff Met University have an organised setup and it’ll be interesting to see how they’ll fair in the Welsh Premier next season. It’s not the most awe-inspiring arena to watch football at – it is what it is. If they announce they’ve signed Gary Taylor-Fletcher though, I may have to come back.
The club has had a chequered history experiencing turbulent times and many name changes.
Thanks to getting lost on campus, I arrived virtually as the game was kicking off. I headed to near the Pontypridd Town dugout where I found fellow groundhopping pal Nicky – who is now also a Pontypridd season ticket holder, committee member and commentator on their home games.
1: League games only 2: Name reverted to UWIC at end of season. 3: Relegated as part of League shack-up 4: Name changed to Cardiff Metropolitan University F.C. at end of season. Last Updated: 29 August 2016
It took just a few minutes into the second half for the home team to equalise. A low pass across the box was missed by one player, before his team-mate controlled and toe-poked home. “I meant that!” shouted the player who had originally missed the pass.
There was one injury scare for Ponty towards the end as one player stayed down as the final whistle approached. Out came the magic sponge and water and he was soon carried off the pitch. To recover from the injury he was offered “Ibruprofen or anyone of 26 bottles of water.” One Ponty player on the bench instead surmised that all he needed was a “good dose of man up!”

Navigating my way out of the campus was less arduous than getting in, but still time-consuming and I was left with a dash through Cardiff suburbia to make the 21:34 back up to the valleys.
Thanks for the heads up regarding the potential to get lost finding the pitch – something I’m prone to. If the Sgorio live match schedule is kind (and my wife obliging) I might try and fit in two matches in one Saturday as Welsh League/SW Alliance matches normally KO at 2:30pm. I’d planned taking a bus from city centre, but taking the train and popping into the Discovery seems a good option.
There had been the usual array of preseason substitutions and it seemed that Pontypridd were coming out of the vast changes better as goals 3 and 4 were added to round off a good night for The Dragons.
The club was formed by a series of mergers and name changes. Firstly, Lake United renamed themselves A.F.C. Cardiff in 1984. In 1990, they were taken over by Sully F.C to form Inter Cardiff FC and then joined the Konica League of Wales.In 1996, the club was renamed Inter CableTel A.F.C. (after their sponsors), but reverted to Inter Cardiff FC in 1999.
I paid a quick visit to the City Arms next door (another excellent boozer), where I indulged in a Lemondrop – unsurprisingly lemon beer – before I headed down Westgate Street alongside the Millennium Stadium, committed the heretic act of snubbing BrewDog and headed for probably my favourite bar in Cardiff these days.

The game wasn’t too lively, but Ponty would open the scoring in an eye-catching manner. The Cardiff Met goalie came rushing off his line to clear only for his clearance to land at the feet of Aiden Lewis, who curled the ball over the keeper from 30 yards out with the keeper struggling to get back to his line.
As for the ground…well it was exactly what I expected from a uni campus ground to be honest. The only stand in the ground sits on the far side of the ground and is a standard IKEA-esque, flat pack stand with seating for maybe a 100 – maybe less. The ground is flanked by the indoor arena or one side and another athletics track and a rugby pitch. Toilets come in the form of festival-esque cubicles.

I am intrigued which Welsh club annoyed you with the late postponement though haha
Another cracking blog mate! Hoping to head there later on in the season and might combine it with a night out in Caerdydd also.

Low Points: it’s a uni campus football ground, no Gary Taylor-Fletcher.
I paid a visit to my old place of work, Sports Direct in St. Davids 2 (tragic I know) to perform the necessary errand of buying some new laces, before heading to Westgate Street to visit one of my favourite Cardiffian drinking holes. The Urban Tap House is superb and has lots of beers from one of my favourite breweries, Tiny Rebel. Of course, being back in Wales I had to have a pint of Cwtch (and if you don’t know what a ‘cwtch’ is then shame on you – google it).
Meanwhile, the team of Cardiff College of Education (later University of Wales Institute, Cardiff) was developing . The team went through a series of name changes, mirroring the name changes of the institution it represented. The team was originally known as Cardiff College of Education F.C.. They became South Glamorgan Institute F.C. in 1979; Cardiff Institute of Higher Education F.C. in 1990 and UWIC in 1996.
I almost made an attempted return visit to the club last week. I’ll just say they’re a Welsh League coastal club…
