'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Former Bluebird to return?

Peter Ridsdale has already made a big impression in Cardiff, making huge strides commercially and financially since his arrival.

Ridsdale now, in his attempts to emphasise Cardiff City as a 'family club', intends to re-introduce a Bluebirds mascot at home games. This would mean either bringing 'Bartley the Bluebird', not seen in several years at Ninian Park, out of retirement, or, to commission a new mascot whose role and appearance would be decided via a Children's competition on the Official site.

Some feel that the Ninian Park atmosphere is already becoming too carnivalised and that the half time 'entertainment' already clutters the pitch up with the children's game and the 'crossbar challenge' but City are a family club and plenty of kids seem to approach Club mascots when available.
The scheme would cost Cardiff City virtually nothing and may add to the occasion for some of the younger City fans.

Personally I can't see what the mascot could possibly be other than a Bluebird so whether a new design to Bartley is necessary I'm not sure. Expect to see a City mascot in place by November 11th when Burnley are the visitors if not this weekend against Derby County.
