Last year the club allowed fans to select their favourite tiger image and rank their preferred shield style. They have also been asked to rank other elements which may feature in the final crest, including a symbol of the Humber Bridge.
The emblem of three crowns reflects the city’s coat of arms, which formed the football club’s first crest in 1935.

Vicky Beercock, Head of Marketing and Communications for Hull City. said on the club website: “Following feedback from supporters, it was important to the Club to ensure this update was supporter led. The numerous stages in the process ensured we heard the masses and were also able to have productive sessions with a smaller group who the supporter base had entrusted with representing their views. The panellists have been incredibly engaged, passionate and collaborative at every step of the way. We can’t thank them enough for the time they have committed to the process to ensure our next crest is a crest our supporters and players are proud to stand behind in the coming seasons, whilst also being a great next step in our journey as a Club.”
Paul Matson, a lifelong Hull City supporter & Chairman and Founder of Hull 4 Heroes added: “We all understood that the tiger was important and that the name ‘Hull City’ needed to be back on the crest along with ‘1904’. We’ve been able to include all of that.”
