Cardiff City fans to march for “heritage and tradition”

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

An array of Cardiff City fans’ groups and forums have joined forces to march for their “heritage and tradition” before the club’s home game against Liverpool on Saturday 22nd March.

The peaceful protest is backed by Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust, Cardiff City Supporters’ Club, Cardiff City Forum, Cardiff City Online, and Bluebirds Unite.

It’s an opportunity for fans to show they do not support the rebrand of the club’s colours and want a return to the traditional blue kit and Bluebird badge.

Organisers are encouraging fans to wear blue scarfs and blue tops to show their feelings rather than banners. The march will also be an alcohol free zone and no abuse of any club officials or the owner will be tolerated.

Fans say this will be an opportunity “to create something special and show the footballing world that Cardiff City fans are a positive and passionate credit to their club”.

The groups involved say that “colours run deep… blue is not just a colour, it’s a huge part of our heritage, tradition and soul”.

All other supporters’ groups and individuals are encouraged to get involved and attend.

Proposed itinerary (subject to police approval):

  • 1pm-2pm: Meet outside the Napier pub (Canton)
  • 2pm: March from the Napier down Sloper Road through main entrance to ground
  • 2.20pm-2.35pm: Pro-blue songs outside main reception area
  • 2.35pm: Move inside ground with sea of blue scarfs for Men of Harlech
  • 19m27s into the game: Sea of blue scarfs/flags/pro-blue songs
