A club statement said: "We’ll then take feedback from those who were in attendance and look to put on weekly sessions for supporters who would love to get together virtually on a regular basis to talk about all things Bluebirds!"

The 'Team Talk' campaign was launched by the EFL and Mind last month with a view to tackling concerns around mental health.
