Bluebirds give redline to switch
Friday 11 May 2012
Cardiff City will not proceed with plans to change the club's badge and home colours following strong opposition from supporters.
Proposals concerning the "significant rebranding" of the Championship club came to light earlier this week, with the club's Malaysian owners understood to be considering switching City's home strip from its traditional blue to red and incorporating the Welsh national symbol of a red dragon into the crest.
Chairman Dato Chan Tien Ghee said: "In the light of the vociferous opposition by a number of the fans to the proposals... we will not proceed with the proposed change of colour and logo and the team will continue to play in blue at home for the next season with the current badge."
