Cardiff City scrap controversial plans for rebranding

The chairman of Cardiff City Football Club has announced that the team will continue to play in blue next season after all.

It comes after outcry from supporters over plans by the club's owners to introduce a red shirt for players, and to scrap the club's bluebird logo.

Acknowledging "vociferous opposition", Dato' Chan Tien Ghee said the club's management team would "reassess" the planned investment package, and warned "this may include looking for new and additional partners and investors".

This was not meant as a slight in any way shape or form on the club's traditions or history which we recognise are the lifeblood of any club.

It was intended as a positive change to allow us to adapt and embrace the future.

Notwithstanding a number of rumours there were no further plans to turn the stadium red or make other radical changes.

– Dato' Chan Tien Ghee, Cardiff City chairman
