BRIEF HISTORY of BRADFORD CITY FOOTBALL CLUB (reproduced from 'Wikipedia' pages)

The club was founded in 1903. It was immediately elected into Division Two of the Football League despite not having played a previous game. Promotion to the top tier followed in 1908 and the club won the FA Cup in 1911, its only major honour. After relegation in 1922 from Division One, the club spent 77 years outside the top flight until promotion to the Premier League in 1999. City stayed up, with a then record low of 36 points, in the first season in the Premier League. Relegation followed the following season. Since then a series of financial crises did push the club to the brink of closure. The financial pressure resulted in two more relegations to League Two. In the 201213 season, they became the first ever team from the fourth tier of English football to reach a major domestic Wembley cup final, the Football League Cup, losing 50 to Swansea City. In the same season, they returned to Wembley for the playoff final and won promotion to League One with a 30 win over Northampton Town.

The club's colours are claret and amber and they play their home games at Valley Parade. The ground was the site of a fire on 11 May 1985, which took the lives of 56 supporters. Bradford City have had more than 40 managers, all of whom have been from Great Britain or Ireland.
