Cardiff fans plan to protest red shirts

Details of protests planned by Cardiff fans for March 22 over the club's change from blue to red shirts have been released.

Not all Cardiff supporters are happy with the club's red shirts.

Cardiff owner Vincent Tan's controversial decision to change the team's shirts and badge from a bluebird to dragon design took effect from the start of the 2012-13 season.

The Welsh outfit play Liverpool at Cardiff City Stadium in the Premier League at 3 p.m. that day and a group of home supporters are set to march to the venue from the nearby Admiral Napier pub an hour before kick-off.

Having reached the ground, they then plan to sing "pro-blue songs" and give a "show of blue pride" outside the main reception area.

It is proposed that they will then once again make their point known from the stands from 19 minutes and 27 seconds into the match with scarves, flags and songs. Cardiff won the FA Cup, their only major honour, in 1927.

A statement on the Cardiff City Supporters' Club website said of the protest: "It will be an opportunity for all Cardiff City fans to show that they do not support the rebrand of the club's colours and strongly desire a return to Cardiff City's traditional blue kit and Bluebird badge.

"The march is backed by all major fan groups and will be supported by members of The Cardiff City Supporters' Trust, The Cardiff City Supporters' Club, Cardiff City Forum, Cardiff City Online and Bluebirds Unite.

"In addition all other supporters groups, individual supporters and their families are invited and encouraged to attend.

"The one and only objective of the march is for fans to display a mass show of pride in Cardiff City's heritage and tradition and to peacefully demonstrate our strong desire to return to our blue kit with Bluebird badge."
