It's just like watching Brazil

City's new kits are not yet available for the fans to buy as it's been reported that a new sponsorship deal has not yet been finalised. Ken Thorne's 2 year deal has finished and a new sponsor will adorn the new kit.

City will play in the traditional Blue kit at home while a "Brazil style" yellow shirt and blue short kit will be the second choice. As Oldham play in blue the new kit could get it's league run out in the first game. Sam Hammam told the Echo

"It is perfect that the Cardiff fans chose Brazil's kit as our second strip and they have reached the World Cup final. It's a victory for the fans. I met with around 60 fans at the end of last season when we decided on season- ticket prices and club kits.

"We discussed many away kits including Argentina and Holland, but the fans decided on Brazil. They were absolutely spot on.

"We are becoming more of a footballing side, particularly since Lennie Lawrence became manager, and I enjoy seeing that.

"Just look at our forward line of Peter Thorne, Andy Campbell and Robert Earnshaw. They all want the team to play football to feet and to entertain.

" We have Jason Bowen, Graham Kavanagh and others who love to play exciting football and have the ability to make it happen.

"Whether they win or lose against Germany in the World Cup final on Sunday, the Brazilian style is the way I would like Cardiff City teams to play, maybe not now, but as we make progress and move into Division One and beyond.

" I want to watch players who can hold the ball, who can pass and dribble, and I am sure every fan wants the same.

" We should run out at Oldham wearing our Brazilian away kit and that will be good to see.

"The idea came from Bluebirds fans and that moment will be a tribute to them."
