Cardiff City Football Club on Wednesday May 29th launched the first images of the 2013/14 home kit, which featured two shades of red, the darker of which was carried in the shorts.
The decision had been made as a means to help visually distinguish the club in the Premier League, while continuing the theme of our successful 2012/13 Championship winning season.
The resulting response carried across social media quickly indicated that a large number of supporters were unhappy with the choice of colour concerning the shorts. For that we apologise.
As a club, we would today like to address this issue by giving all 2013/14 Season Ticket holders held on our email database a vote on varied shorts options for next season.
Although this will not result in every single season ticket holder voting, the size of the email based survey, reaching over 12,000 Cardiff City fans will give a clear indication as to the majority view.*
Voting, based on the image below, starts today via email and will last until 2pm, Friday May 31st, from which we will publish details of the winning option. We will then liaise with Puma to get the shorts put into production as quickly as possible.
Please note that all votes will be fully verified against our database. All duplicates will be discarded, while multiple votes will result in all votes for that person being deleted.
Thank you all for your cooperation in this matter.
One city, one community, one club. #WeAreCardiffCity
