As designs of the new red home kit were released this week, Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust and the Supporters Club have urged Bluebirds fans to keep faith with blue.
Tim Hartley, Trust chair, said: “We, of course, welcome the investment of Vincent Tan which has helped deliver the dream of Premier League football next season. But we firmly believe that the overwhelming majority of Cardiff City supporters would prefer to see the restoration of our traditional blue at home games.”
Vince Alm from the Supporters Club said: “We would like to know from the club when the alternative blue and, indeed, yellow kit will be available for purchase so those loyal supporters who don’t want to buy a red kit can still back their club. Fans have told us they would like to know when they can pre-order blue and they deserve a firm answer.”
Tim Hartley added: “We note that the club is promoting heavily the launch of the red home kit during the summer but we have not heard anything about the alternative blue kit for those fans who remain very supportive of the traditional colours of our beloved Bluebirds.”
Trust members made it clear in its recent fans’ survey that they want to return to blue and the Trust will continue to highlight the majority views of its members at every opportunity. As a result it is looking at innovative ways of ensuring a strong blue presence in the stadium.
