The club's campaign to raise funds for a new big screen and changing rooms - #UPGRADETHEPARADE - has now nearly reached £65,000 from over 1,000 fan-funders!
In return for a fans' contribution, they can get a reward from things such as a limited edition wristband to a VIP match day experience, so a big thank you to everyone who has contributed and also those who have donated items!
After getting into a play-off position with a brilliant performance against Doncaster Rovers last weekend, the boys face tough opposition in Wigan Athletic this Saturday to try and solidify our position.
Again, just like Kyel Reid at the Burton game, the goal-scorer’s match shirt was signed by the player and put up for auction straight after the match, this time the man was Jamie Proctor.
Phil Parkinson also got in on the action and signed his famous v-neck jumper that he had worn whilst masterminding the 2-1 victory and put it up for auction as well.
During the week, a shirt signed by the whole squad and also one signed by captain Stephen Darby were put up for sale catching good amounts.
After the success of these items we saw a rare item donated to the campaign that really was something to sing about. A 1976 Bradford City A.F.C. vs Watford F.C. match day programme signed by Watford’s most famous fan and former owner, Elton John! A real collector’s item!
We currently have a shirt signed by first team goalkeeper Ben Williams on auction until this Saturday evening, a real keeper!
If there is another stand out performance from one of the boys on Saturday (fingers crossed!) expect an auction similar to the ones for Proctor and Reid’s match shirts. As usual, visit tifosy.com/bantams to check out all the rewards on offer.
