‘Fantastic news’ as Cardiff City return to blue with immediate effect

Commenting on the news of Cardiff City’s return to blue, Stephen – a lifelong fan and long-term season ticket holder – said: “This is just fantastic – the news we have all been waiting and hoping for.


“Since the change of colours, I have expressed my view both publicly and privately to Tan Sri Vincent Tan and his team, and impressed upon them the strength of feeling among the fanbase, as well as among the city as a whole and the wider footballing community.

“I’d like to thank Mr Tan for listening to the views of the fans, and Mehmet Dalman and Ken Choo for making sure those views were heard.

“I’d also like to pay tribute to all the fans who have helped make this a reality through their ongoing campaigning, in particular Cardiff City Supporters Trust and Cardiff City Supporters Club, the various groups who organised the return to blue campaign, and everyone who spoke so well at the meeting last night.

“Cardiff City, the Bluebirds, are back in blue – I hope this will unite the club, and help everyone move forward together from what has been a very difficult time.

“The passionate support of the fans, coupled with Mr Tan’s ongoing financial commitment to the club and wider community – including his extraordinary generosity to local charities – will hopefully make us once again a force to be reckoned with.

“I have long argued that fans’ and supporters’ organisations need to play a much greater role in the governance of football across the UK, not just at CCFC. Last night’s meeting and the fantastic news today are an example of how an atmosphere of co-operation and mutual respect between financial backers and longstanding fans can be a win-win for all involved.

“Now let’s get back focused on getting the Bluebirds back where they belong – the Premier League!”
