Bristol City unveil new questionable club crest and home kit for 2019/20 season

Yesterday evening saw Bristol City unveil their new club crest as well as their new home kit for the 2019/20 season.

The robin has made its permanent return since featuring last back in the 90s, replacing the coat of arms crest and will appear on the home and away kits of City and City Women next season, as well as training and leisurewear.

The date has ‘1894’ on it instead of 1897 (which previous crest had) with the club planning on celebrating their 125th anniversary since forming when they were originally known as Bristol South End.

The home shirt is predominantly red with thin white trim on the cuffs.

Take a look at the new kit and crest looks like below…

They also uploaded a video of the design process, which also features a suspension bridge…

Jon Lansdown the Vice-Chairman of Bristol City said: “The robin has long been a symbol of Bristol City and has been part of our history through imagery, words and song. It is important that we have an instantly recognisable crest that reflects the club and we want to fully own this symbolic part of our identity.

“The robin was first used on our kit as far back as 1949 and has been used this season on the white away shirt which has been incredibly popular with supporters. From now on it will appear on all our kit and be a fundamental part of our identity.”

Bristol City Chief Executive Officer Mark Ashton said: “I am sure that supporters will be delighted with what we have achieved with the crest. It is bold, creative and symbolises what this club is all about.

“The return of the robin is something I know fans have wanted for a long time. We saw it return on this season’s away kit and now it is back for good.

“The updated crest takes Bristol City and Bristol City Women into a new era together and I can’t wait for what the next chapter will bring.”


Following the reveal, fans gave a mixed reaction to the crest on social media, many annoyed that the well known Suspension Bridge wasn’t included, along with the fact that it looked very similar to Brentford’s logo – find out more of those tweets on the next page.
