Cardiff City have restored the club's traditional colours and marked their return to their traditional blue home kit with a win against Fulham at Cardiff City Stadium.

The team - known as the Bluebirds - played in blue shirts at home on Saturday for the first time since 2012 after the club's owner agreed to change the colour back from red.

Owner Vincent Tan gave the go-ahead on Friday after a meeting with supporters.

The controversial rebrand to red was introduced by Tan after he bought the club but was unpopular with supporters.

The red shirt - introduced in June 2012 to appeal to international markets - will remain as Cardiff's away kit. 

The club's badge will also be changed to give the Bluebird mascot more prominence.

In a statement, Tan said his mother had been instrumental in his change of heart over the kit's colour.

"The Christmas and New Year period has given me time to reflect on events of the last year," he said.

"Spending time with my family has had a profound effect upon me, my mother... spoke to me on the importance of togetherness, unity and happiness.

"Cardiff City Football Club is important to me and I wish to see it united and happy."

This is better than the Diadora kits Roda has now, but I also still think it's a cold, boring club.

 

A win of supporters against money, keep walkin Cardiff!

Great news, great for the area, the club and the fans. Tan has met the fans half way. Whilst he will never be voted Chairman of the year, fair play for listening to the fans on this one.
