smarterVENUES has various football advertising options in and around Cardiff City Football Club Stadium. Whether you're looking for local or national football advertising options, smarterVENUES can help. On this page you'll find out everything you need to know about advertising at Cardiff City Stadium.

CONCOURSE COMMUNAL AREAS:

We're able to get you in front of groups of fans via our Concourse TV system (where we have two advertising formats, the Main Panel and Banner) and concourse 6 Sheet advertising posters. Both of these give you the chance to get what you do in front of fans while they are in groups, meaning a higher likelihood of them talking about your advertising. You don't have to advertise all the way around the stadium for your advertising to be effective; we're able to target particular groups of fans by focusing on different areas of the ground, whether that be getting your brand in front of more affluent fans by targeting the areas around the halfway line, or family ticket holders around the family zones.

Fans spend between 2 and 4 1/2 hours in the stadium per match, and these concourse options are great for catching them as they hang out discussing the game.

WASHROOMS:

If you would prefer one on one engagement with the fans on matchdays then try our A3-sized posters in the washrooms. We're able to offer two different zones in our washrooms: the first zone is the urinals giving you true one on one time with the audience, while the second is the hand washing area (where our advertising posters are placed above the sinks and around hand driers).

Both zones offer high dwell times of 30-60 seconds

GIANT SCREEN:

If you want huge impact advertising than giant screens are the format for you. At Cardiff City Football Club we have a giant screen over looking the pitch and ads plays before, during half time and after the game. Giant screens are actionable, noticiable and hit big numbers with the audience, making them great for all kinds of advertising.
