Cardiff confirmed their promotion with a goalless draw against Charlton before securing the Npower Championship title with another draw against struggling Burnley.
The Championship football betting had the Bluebirds marked as front-runners for promotion at the start of the season, but with the second tier of English football becoming more competitive each year there are never any guarantees that things will run to form.
After only winning one out of their first three games the Welsh side settled into their stride, and by the end of September were firmly established amongst the front-runners. They pick up the title despite a stuttering run-in to their season – they have only won one out their last five matches.
Cardiff fans will no doubt be delighted to become the second Welsh team in the Premier League, following in the footsteps of rivals Swansea who were promoted two years ago.
A joyful moment is being felt by Cardiff City at the moment as they have already secured their place into the Premier League this season after waiting for 53 years. Speaking about their success to the media, Cardiff manager Malky Mackay revealed that he is very happy and proud with his side’s achievement as they finally managed to fulfill the wish of their loyal fans.
Mackay also stated that he is looking forward for the new challenge next season as playing in one of the best competition in the world will be a huge one for Cardiff.
