Championship side Birmingham City have revealed via their official club website that they will wear a special crest on their shirts during the 2015-16 season to celebrate the 140th anniversary of the club.
The club’s initials ‘BCFC’ will be on the new logo which is similar to the club crest that was first introduced in 1971 and was featured on the team’s shirts for a period of five years. During the 1996-7 season, the Blues wore a different variation of the ‘BCFC’ logo on their shirts.
The new club crest will also include the year 1875 to represent the year that the club was founded, and the number 140 which signifies the club’s 140th anniversary.
Blues’ current club crest, which features a globe on top of a football, was created in 1972 by a winner of a fans competition in a local newspaper, but was not used until 1976.
A few final touches are to be made to the new crest and kit ahead of the forthcoming 2015-16 season. Birmingham’s new home kit is set to be revealed in early July.
