    Give out hundreds, if not thousands, of free tickets to schools and sports clubs.

    I’ll give them an email tomorrow with the suggestions. Biggest one to improve match day experience would be swapping the two ends I think.
    They will never swap ends even though it would make for a much better atmosphere. I’ve sat in the family stand a few times can barely hear the canton

It is one of the main reasons why disturbances at games has reduced considerably in the last 20 years.
    I think the threat of going down for a few years is enough to put most people off stepping over the line, seems like most clubs having the most vocal support right next to the away fans with few issues…..

    Watch. Not partake. I was 13-14-15. Some people want drama. It's a natural instinct for some.

    I get it.

    I also get others who want that mentality and scene stamped out for good. Especially for the sake of younger kids

    I totally agree but meeting friends doesn’t include balling way the away fans and missing any action.

    advertise upcoming games more
    lots of students in Cardiff, let's get them going to games, many aren't from Cardiff but I'm sure some would like to attend real games.
    maybe a tickets concession stand in the student union or something

    In fairness, if opposing fans had been next to each other during the MM games this season, the match day experience may have been better as a distraction from the shite served up

    They could do a bit more entertainment-wise such as a band playing before (possibly after) the game like they did a couple of years back. The franchises may sell a few more beers too provided they did a kind of "happy hour".

    The horse racing meetings have made their experience better by having named bands post-racing.
    Perhaps CCFC could do something similar.

    I would normally agree with this but the first half of the Hull game needed something to make a noise about.
    A decent drummer could help.
