After a 77-year absence, Bradford were promoted to the Premier League in 1999. However, entering administration twice and relegations in 2000, 2004 & 2007 put the club back into the 4th tier. A promotion to League 1 in 2013 was followed by relegation to League 2 in 2019.
The Robins, the Paraders, the Wasps and the Citizens are all nicknames the club have had over the years. These days they are known as the Bantams. Bradford play at Valley Parade which has a capacity of over 25,000 (the highest capacity in League 2). Bradford are also the best supported side in League 2 (by some distance!).
Bradford are the only professional English team to wear claret and amber, colours they have worn since they were formed in 1903 (they are the same colours as Motherwell in Scotland). Sales of Bradford scarfs have been brisk since they are the same as Harry Potter’s house colours at Hogwarts.
Are these Bradford fans??
