Cardiff City have received criticism from fans after revealing their new home strip for next season.

Their two-tone red strip will be the first kit worn by the club in the Premier League after getting promotion from the Championship last season.

But with the shorts being a different shade of red to the shirt and socks, fans have wasted no time in voicing their opinions.

Fans on Twitter have labelled it "shocking and atrocious", while one fan took it a step further a described it "the worst kit in the history of the club".

Last season the famous blue colours of Cardiff City was dropped by the club's Malaysian owner Vincent Tan in favour of a red strip, causing a stir of controversy.

However, the appearance of this new strip may cause even more controversy among Cardiff fans.

The home strip last season had black shorts but these have been bizarrely replaced by a slighter darker red than the shirt and socks.

Kit makers Puma wrote in the released email: "We have decided to maximise on the Puma King design and adopt a two-tone red home kit this season, helping us stand out in the Premier League crowd.

"The two Puma King stripes reflect the fans loyalty to the club, which is appreciated by all."

This will be the second consecutive season that Cardiff will wear a red home strip after Vincent Tan is said to believe that red is lucky.

The red certainly brought the Bluebirds luck last season after winning the Championship but fans will be hoping they can forget about their 'hideous' strip to survive in the Premier League next year.
