85% of Cardiff fans vote for kit change

Vast majority of Cardiff City fans asked want a return to blue strip and original crest.

Cardiff City fans have been out in force in an attempt to convince owner Vincent Tan to change their shirt colour back from red to blue.

In a poll organised by the Cardiff City Supporter’s Trust, a staggering 85% of fans voted for the club colours to be reverted to their traditional blue, and for the new logo to be scrapped.

It was revealed that just 24 of over 1000 fans that took part in the vote were happy with the club playing in red. It is a resounding message to Tan, who arrived on the scene back in 2010.

A further poll showed that 77% of the fans that voted considered the Bluebirds first ever season in the Premier League ‘disappointing’.

Cardiff fans have organised a protest in the build-up to the game against Liverpool on Saturday. Supporters will gather before kick-off at the Cardiff City Stadium and continue their efforts to sway Tan’s judgement regarding the branding of the club. Cardiff officials have been informed of the march.

Tan went on record just last month believing that 90% of supporters were content with the club’s running, and said it was the 10% who were trying to make life difficult for him. The Malaysian even went as far as requesting an apology from all those who protested against him.

But Saturday is likely to be another reminder of the thirst for the club’s foundations to be respected. It comes amid the huge task of Premier League survival, where Cardiff have just eight games to claw themselves out of trouble, or face an immediate return to the Championship.

Can Vincent Tan be persuaded into reverting Cardiff’s kit from red to blue?
