The Blues are hoping a move back to Cardiff Arms Park will attract more fans to home games.
Cardiff Blues have announced today that their matches for the 2012/13 season and beyond will once again be played at Cardiff Arms Park.
We are putting regional rugby back in the heart of Cardiff
The Blues moved from the Arms Park to the newly built Cardiff City Stadium in the summer of 2009. In February 2012 the Blues played two games, Ulster and Connacht, at the Arms Park, which proved popular with supporters.
Following these games, and subsequent consultations with supporters and sponsors, Cardiff Blues CEO, Richard Holland, has negotiated a release from the Cardiff City stadium lease.
Holland said: "We are putting regional rugby back in the heart of Cardiff.
"The move to the Cardiff City stadium was done for all the right reasons. But having listened to supporters, sponsors and reviewed the financial position of the business, the board and I believe the Cardiff Blues should be playing back at the Arms Park.
"This move is important for our future sustainability, important to our supporters, and good for Cardiff Blues.
"I would like to thank the board of Cardiff City Football Club for their friendliness and openness during our negotiation over the release from the Cardiff City lease. We will still have the option of playing games at the Cardiff City Stadium when demand for tickets dictates. So we look forward to seeing them again in the future and wish them the best of luck for the coming football season.
"We will be investing in improved facilities at the Arms Park over the summer, and Phil Davies our new Director of Rugby has already taken the reins of the rugby department. These are exciting times for Cardiff Blues. Our current season ticket holders will have first choice on season tickets for the forthcoming season which have been priced very competitively."
Of the agreement, Cardiff City Chief Executive Alan Whiteley said, "This is a decision that will allow Cardiff City Football Club to take positive steps forward in terms of celebrating the stadium as the sole home of the football club, while also assisting Cardiff Blues to maintain their future stability."
