City Supporters see Red

Emergency Meeting with the Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust and the Supporters’ Club

Wearing red shirts and having a dragon rather than a Bluebird on its badge is a step too far, according to the Cardiff City Supporters Trust Board. The changes announced by the club will see the end of more than a century of tradition and could undermine support for the Bluebirds in South Wales .

While we welcome the continued investment by our Malaysian owners, these changes ignore the history of the club and the attachment that generations of fans have for the Bluebird and blue strip.

As a Trust we want to canvass supporters’ opinion and with the Supporters Club we are holding an emergency meeting this weekend.

All City fans are invited to a meeting at the Municipal Club, 11, City Road , Cardiff , CF24 3BJ, at 3 p.m. on Saturday to discuss the next steps.

A football club is not like any ordinary business which can be rebranded and traded without any thought for the fans. Cardiff City Football Club belongs to supporters and their families who have supported it through thick and thin. Most want to stick with the blue colours and the Bluebird on the crest. Of course we would like the City to become an international brand, but at what price?

e-mail if you intend to come to the meeting.

It is vital the fans have their say – Join the Supporters Trust now!
