Bradford City AFC

Bradford City AFC, or the Bantams to most, have been central to the city's social landscape since the club's establishment way back in 1903, from its origins as the rugby league club Manningham FC.

Based out of the iconic Valley Parade stadium, the club have enjoyed many highs and lows over the years. These events and periods keep us focused on what is important. As such the club is committed to the local community and using its position as a power for good.

Building on the club's longstanding lottery related offers, fans can help the club this way by supporting the new 'Forever Bantams' Partnership and playing the NYCDA Weekly Draw. All proceeds from this innovate partnership will go to support our family engagement plans and the University of Bradford's Burns Research Unit.
