In response to the announcement of the new club badge, a number of members have contacted us to express their dislike of the new design, and to ask if we were consulted in the design process.
The Supporters’ Trust were not consulted, however we were shown the design on the evening of the 23rd January during the Supporters Advisory Board meeting. During this meeting CEO Angus Kinnear and Head of Media & Communications James Mooney explained the club’s design choices and some of the consultation process. While opinions on the final design may differ, we are confident that the club conducted thorough research and that the end product was a close reflection on the information they received.
Due to the number of enquiries the Trust has received and the reaction we have witnessed online, we will be releasing a survey to accurately measure the opinions of our members which we will then pass on to the club.
