Cardiff City Football Club are back in the Premier League, despite drawing at home to Reading.

The Bluebirds are automatically promoted to the Premier League with 90-points, thanks to Fulham’s defeat at Birmingham.

As well as a fantastic result for Cardiff City, it’s also a personal best for Neil Warnock, with Cardiff making it a record eighth promotion as football manager. Neil Warnock had said winning a record eighth promotion would be his “greatest achievement”.

Cardiff weren’t the only ones celebrating following the draw, which also sees Reading’s survival in the Premier League too.

However, the real celebration is with Cardiff, they haven’t been in the top tier league since the 2013–14 season, which was the club’s first season in the league for 51 years.

This is how Cardiff City fans have been celebrating today…

It began with a pitch invasion and fireworks…

Tons of epic pitch selfies

We mean tons…

It didn’t take much encouragement for some to celebrate

Some fans even had chills…

It had been a long-time coming for some…

Others stood around in total disbelief

While others knighted the manager…

We might not know the true extent of celebrations for 9 months… apparently

I think it’s a fair assumption that there will be plenty of celebration taking place in Cardiff tonight.
