Looking for automatic promotion to the Premier League for the first time, 23,812 fans came eagerly to the last game of the season and saw goals from Nick Proschwitz and Paul McShane give City the lead. But at 2-1 up Proschwitz missed what looked to be a crucial penalty and soon afterwards Cardiff equalised with a penalty at the other end. So as the final whistle blew 2-2 wasn't certain to be enough to take City to the top tier and the promised £120 million. It looked like a near miss.


Former City favourite Fraizer Campbell had opened the scoring for Cardiff and current second choice keeper David Marshall was in the Cardiff goal on that historic day. The drama intensified when manager Steve Bruce and his player son Alex looked away as Proschwitz took the penalty and the anguish from both was evident as City fans went through a wide range of emotions on a day with so many twists and turns 


After an agonising 16 minute wait at the end of the game, news came through that Leeds United had won at Watford sending Hull City up to the Premier League for only the second time. The celebrations that followed from fans, players and officials alike were amazing. Remember the 'Elmo Dance'?


Here's some fantastic YouTube footage - relive the scenes and this amazing day, there will never be a match quite like it ever again.....we hope!

Remember the goalless draw against Newport County AFC on 12 November 1983? Were you one of the 7235 who watched the Division 3 fixture at Boothferry Park?

We reckon there will be a lot of Hull City fans who have never seen us play Newport!
