Cardiff to stick with crest

4 March 2013

Cardiff have announced there will be no changes to the club crest "for the foreseeable future".

The latest statement from the south Wales outfit comes just four days after billionaire owner Tan Sri Vincent Tan denied he was looking to change the club's name, with one of the options reportedly being to rebrand them as Cardiff Dragons.

Malaysian businessman Tan oversaw the club's change from their traditional blue strip to a red home kit last summer, as well as the introduction new badge prominently featuring a red dragon alongside a bluebird.

A further change to the crest had been mooted as a possibility should Cardiff secure promotion to the Premier League; the Bluebirds are currently five points clear at the top of the npower Championship.

But Cardiff posted a statement on the club's official website insisting the club's badge will not be altered after Tan held talks with the management team.

It read: "Cardiff City Football Club can confirm that the board has agreed to retain the existing club crest for the foreseeable future, without any modifications or changes.

"The board was advised by Tan Sri Vincent Tan on this confirmation, based on the guidance and recommendations of the Cardiff City management team.

"Tan Sri Vincent Tan would like to place on record his thanks to the management team on this matter.

"All at Cardiff City Football Club should now remain fully focused in supporting Malky Mackay and his squad for the remaining fixtures of the season.

"We call on all supporters to continue their incredible backing, both home and away. All support received is invaluable, appreciated and a vital factor towards our shared goals and aspirations going forward."
