PLAY THE 'GENERATION GAME'

4 April 2019

The club is giving supporters - whose loyalty to the Bantams has been passed down through the family - the chance to WIN a pair of ‘Our City’ season tickets!

Ahead of the upcoming Sunday April 14 deadline, which will see season ticket prices rise by 50%, this an opportunity to secure your seats FREE of charge for the 2019/20 season.

As the clock counts down, the Bantams are offering an added bonus to find the fan with the most generations of supporters in their family which will earn them a pre-season treat.

Glenn Ackroyd, a club ambassador, said: “We are proud to be recognised as a family club and have people of all ages who come week in, week out.

“You hear so many great stories about people attending games from way back in the 1940s and ‘50s.

“We have had a difficult season, but most of our supporters have witnessed the highs and lows that come with being a City fan.

"We wanted to recognise the strength of our loyal support and at the same we were looking for a fun idea to link into the season-ticket campaign.

“It started out by wondering who was the oldest season-ticket holder and then moved on to trying to discover which family has the most generations of supporters.”

City’s commercial manager Michael Shackleton, pictured above alongside Glenn Ackroyd, comes from a family with four generations of season ticket holders. So the hunt is on to find someone who can beat that and win.

The competition is simple to enter.

Provide the name and date of birth of one person in each generation and then confirm the generation of each person, ie great grandma, grandad, mum, daughter, grandson etc.

If the battle to find the family with the largest number of generations ends in a tie, the family with the oldest member will win.

Entries should be submitted by email to lauren.wood@nqyne.co.uk with the subject line ‘Generation Game’.

The deadline for entries is midnight on the April 14 to coincide with the ‘Our City’ season-ticket deadline.

The winner will be announced during the following week with a photograph of the winners receiving their tickets to be featured in the Telegraph & Argus.
