Bradford City Football Club is looking to spread some Christmas cheer this weekend at the Coral Windows Stadium against Scunthorpe United, as the club looks to raise funds for Bradford Hospitals Children’s charity by attempting to break a ‘World Record’ for the largest gathering of people wearing Christmas jumpers.
What started out as a bit of fun for the club staff to wear Christmas jumpers at the game, has now turned into an invite to all Bradford City and Scunthorpe United fans to come along to the game in a Christmas jumper and help break the an existing World Record.
The current record stands at 639 set at an event in 2013.
As part of the attempt, the club will be asking all supporters to wear their Christmas jumpers and to support the attempt by tweeting the event using the hashtag #getyourjumperon which we hope to have trending around the world.
When you arrive at the game on Saturday wearing your Christmas jumper you will be given a raffle ticket as you enter the ground. At full-time we would like to ask everyone taking part to stay in their seats for a photograph, before we conduct a raffle draw to win a free season ticket for next season.
The raffle ticket stubs and photographs will be used as to confirm whether or not the record has been broken. As part of the event, the club will also be asking supporters to donate £1.00 to bucket collections around the ground and all funds will go to Bradford Hospitals Children’s charity.
