The Bantams will make history in Sunday’s Capital One Cup showpiece against Barclays Premier League side Swansea by becoming the first club from the bottom tier to appear at Wembley in one of English football’s major finals
The club’s incredible Capital One Cup journey began back in August with a surprise 1-0 win at Notts County in the first round and they trumped that later that same month with a 2-1 victory at Championship high-flyers Watford.
Bradford needed a last-minute goal to force extra time in the third round against Burton before defender Stephen Darby struck the winner and Premier League side Wigan were beaten 4-2 on penalties after a goalless 120 minutes in the fourth round before Parkinson’s side secured famous wins over Arsenal and Aston Villa, the latter in a two-legged semi-final.
City supporters, including Cardinal’s own Jo McShera and Mel Mitchell, camped out overnight in the snow last week outside Valley Parade to snap up the last remaining tickets and almost 32,000 will converge on Wembley to celebrate as Phil Parkinson’s npower League Two side bid to fulfill the impossible dream
Bradford will pay tribute to the fans that lost their lives in the Valley Parade fire at Wembley by wearing specially-made tracksuit tops. The tops will have the number 56 and the words ‘Always With Us’ embroidered on the front
Many of Cardinal’s employees will be making the journey to London this weekend and we hope they have a memorable experience and wish them the very best of luck
Come on City!
