Cardiff City have revealed the home and away kits for the next season, which will see a move to a red strip for home games.

The new strip - which will include a red dragon in place of the club's iconic Bluebird logo - was announced at 9am this morning, along with plans for a new training facility for the club.

The club said the "major and significant" funding package was a sign of the "confidence and long term commitment" held by the club's investors.

It comes after initial proposals revealed last month met with a mixed reception from fans.

The statement also outlined plans for a 'state of the art' club-owned training facility, either at the existing Vale of Glamorgan site, or elsewhere in Cardiff.

The club said that its principal investors, Tan Sri Vincent Tan and Dato Chan Tien Ghee had also committed the resolving the club's Langston debt.
