Cardiff fans call date for shirt protest

Cardiff City supporters have revealed the date for their protests against the colour of the club kit.

The Welsh outfit had played in blue shirts until current owner Vincent Tan came in and changed things around, altering the strip to predominantly red, and adding a dragon to the club crest which already consisted of a bluebird.

A section of Bluebirds supporters have grown frustrated since the alterations and are determined to protest the situation at the home meeting with Liverpool on March 22.

It has been revealed that supporters will sing 'pro-blue songs' outside the main reception area before continuing the protest from the 19-minute, 27-second mark of the match to pay tribute to the club's 1927 FA Cup triumph.

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."
