Stadium Valley Parade
Time at Club:
Bradford City play their football in League One and are managed by Stuart McCall who replaced long-standing manager Phil Parkinson in June 2016. McCall nearly won promotion on his returned but agonisingly missed out in the play-off final to Millwall.
Founded in 1903, Bradford immediately found themselves playing in the second tier of English football and it wasn't long before they were battling it out in the top flight. An FA Cup final success followed in 1911 and the club continued to blossom, but that would be their only FA Cup success in their history.
Relegated in 1922, the club suffered 77 years of playing in the lower echelons of the football ladder, but they eventually won promotion to the Premier League in 1999, where they cemented their place in the top flight after the first season.
However, they tasted relegation the following campaign and have been on a slippery slope ever since gradually plummeting through the divisions until they ended up in their current position in the fourth tier of the game, in League Two.
Now managed by McCall, Bradford City will be hoping to put financial worries to one side and produce some impressive football on the pitch, but it's going to be a difficult assignment for McCall to get the club back into the big time over the next few seasons.
A binary run of results has seen Bradford City rack up 6 wins in the last 10 games, beating Rochdale, Plymouth Argyle, Shrewsbury Town, Wigan Athletic, Chesterfield and Portsmouth. Defeats to Oldham Athletic, Scunthorpe United, Plymouth Argyle and Rotherham United has seen them score 14 at an average of 1.4 goals per game while surrendering 12 (Avg: 1.2)
