BRADFORD CITY v NORTHAMPTON TOWN (Tuesday 22nd November kick off 7.45pm)
Following the sad news we received this week regarding the sudden passing of our record goal scorer Bobby Campbell, the club have decided to reduce the match ticket prices for next Tuesday's game against Northampton Town to encourage any fan to come and pay their last respects to Bobby, and to share with us some outstanding memories of his time with Bradford City.
Videos of the big man will be played on our new scoreboard prior to the match to allow fans to relive some special memories with action from some of Bobby’s games including that momentous 1-0 win against the mighty Liverpool in the Milk Cup in 1980.
The club also other gestures planned on the night including a chorus of 'One Bobby Campbell' in the 9th minute of the game. Perhaps this could become a regular feature home and away to remember him.
Bobby's family will be in attendance with a host of former team mates and anyone wishing to pay their final respects to the genial Irishman, needs to be in the stadium for 7.30 for the showing of the first video.
As a goodwill gesture, and to help more people get to the game, the club have generously agreed to reduce the admission prices. If an adult purchases a ticket by 5pm on Monday the cost is £15, the price will rise to £20 on the day of the game. Other reductions for concessions also apply.
Lets fill the stadium and raise the roof in memory of our greatest goal scorer.
Any City fan who has already bought a ticket for the game at £20 should bring the ticket back to the ticket office where the staff will be happy to refund the fiver.
