The Trust is conducting its annual fans’ survey and we’d be grateful if supporters could spare a few minutes to answer the questions.
There are questions on issues such as supporter directors, safe standing, season ticket renewals and the match-day experience and what you would like to see the Trust prioritise in the year ahead.

An evening of great soccer chat takes place on Thursday (7.30 for 8pm) at the Llandaff Institute in Llandaff, Cardiff.
Leading sports writer, Peter Jackson, who reported on Cardiff City for the South Wales Echo, during the reign of manager Jimmy Scoular, will be talking about those days. Peter has some fascinating and funny stories to tell of his times working with Jimmy.
Peter will be in conversation with one of the legendary players from that era, Gary Bell and club historian, Richard Shepherd.
Richard will also be bringing along a file of classic photographs relating to that famous European Cup Winners’ Cup trip to Tashkent in 1968. It is hoped we will also be able to show a short film of the Torpedo Moscow trip.

Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust today called for a new era between the football club and its supporters in the wake of the return to blue.
Chairman Tim Hartley said:
“The decision of the owner Vincent Tan to restore our club’s traditional colours now opens the way to building a new relationship between the football club and its supporters.
“The last two-and-a-half years have shown that meaningful dialogue and engagement between the club and its supporters is essential as we move forward. We are meeting club executives next month and hope that this will mark the beginning of a new era.
“Members have already been discussing the new club badge. It is important that the crest is acceptable to the fans and the club and that supporters are given a real say on options for a new badge. There is also a need to discuss further the issue of conversion of debt to equity.
“Mr Tan has mooted the idea of a supporter representative on the club’s board. The Chairman, Mehmet Dalman, talked of greater fan involvement last week. We have seen what a success having a Supporter Trust director on the board has been at Swansea City and we would like to see a democratically elected representative on Cardiff City’s board.
“We love our football club and deeper and more meaningful supporter engagement will be of huge benefit to the club and fans.
“The UK Government has set up its Expert Group on Football which is looking at fan ownership and at giving fans a much stronger voice in the running of their clubs. These issues are moving up the political agenda with major parties proposing greater supporter involvement before the General Election.
“I urge the club to make the most of the new relationship with supporters after last week’s return to blue and the Trust looks forward to working together in the best interests of Cardiff City.”
