#UPGRADETHEPARADE

Campaign look back

Bradford’s Fanfunding campaign for new changing rooms and a new big screen closed on Friday night with the campaign raising enough funds for both projects!

It has been an incredible campaign with some amazing once in a lifetime rewards, going from signed shirts to playing on the Valley Parade pitch and even a night watching and meeting Dynamo with some Bantams players!

Without the amazing support from the fans this would not have been possible and we know that everyone has loved the rewards and experiences on offer. Seeing messages of thanks from fans makes it all worth while to know that we have made a difference.

The new big screen will mean fans can watch re-runs of old games and get messages from the manager and players. The screen will also bring in extra revenue to the club through advertising making the clubs income streams more sustainable.

It has been a pleasure to help the club and fans and we hope that everyone enjoys the new big screen and that the players enjoy their new changing rooms. By funding these projects through a crowdfunding campaign it means there is more left in the playing budget and the club will benefit from advertising revenue through the screen which it would not have been able to afford normally. So you really have made a difference to the club!

The Campaign

Bradford City is a football club with a rich history, from the highs of the FA Cup triumph in 1911, promotion to the Premier League in 1999, and beating Chelsea and Sunderland in the cup in 2015, to the lows of two administrations and three relegations in 7 years. Through thick and thin, the City fans have stuck by their club and been a credit to their City.

Bradford City’s business model is simple: prioritise success on the pitch and everything else will follow. The club operates a sustainable financial model to avoid falling into difficulties like those experienced in the early 2000s, with all revenues reinvested back into the club. As a result, available funding for development projects is limited – as we all know, no improvement to The Coral Windows Stadium at Valley Parade is going to score 30 goals a season!

Now, the Bradford City Supporters Board have approached the club with a plan to raise £250,000 to invest in the stadium through FanFunding. With the contributions of BCAFC supporters around the world, we hope to raise enough money to renovate the players’ changing rooms and install a Big Screen to replace the outdated scoreboard in the south east corner. We want to #UpgradeTheParade for the players and the fans.

The Projects

Project 1: Renovate the current player changing rooms

 

Project 2: New big screen
