Return to the glory days

You've got to be a very young Bantams fan indeed not to recall when Bradford City were in the Premier League - just eight years ago. After spending two years in the top flight, memorably beating the likes of Chelsea, Newcastle, Sunderland & Liverpool, Bradford were ultimately relegated back into the old First Division in 2001.

A series of financial crises, partly brought on by the cost of trying to compete in and then return to the Premier League, have continued to take their toll on the Bantams. The club narrowly avoided going out of business, but have now dropped down to the foot of League Two. Poor results so far this season unfortunately mean relegation is, scarily once again, a distinct possibility.

Nevertheless, Bradford City are a great club with a loyal fan base - the 2006/07 season saw average attendances of over 13,000, which is over four times the crowds seen at some League Two games - and you deserve to be watching your team make a return to the top divisions of English football.

If you would like the chance to help put Bradford City back on the path to glory and have a say in the future of the club, then maybe The People's Club can help.

Bradford City - The People's Club?

The People’s Club are signing up 40,000 + football fans who are interesting in buying and running a real football club, which will be chosen by our members. We expect to bring in excess of £1,500,000 investment per season to the chosen club.

If our members choose Bradford City to be The People's Club, then what will we do?

Firstly, we'll bring much needed investment to the club in a number of ways.

You can expect gate receipts at home games to go up as members travel to see games and boost the attendance figures. New commercial activities will bring in additional revenue and the very nature of The People's Club concept will naturally mean that Bradford City will receive a massive publicity boost as the local and national media all monitor the success of the club.

Secondly, you, the fans, will run the club. You'll have the ability to vote on whether to hire or fire a manager, which players start each game each week and who is on the bench. As the transfer window opens, you'll be able to choose who we sign and who we transfer list.

We're giving you the opportunity to take Bradford City forwards - and, who knows, maybe one day we'll be boarding coaches to take us to Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge and Villa Park every other Saturday.

Most importantly, what we won't do is change Bradford City for the worse. We're all football fans and we fully understand the importance of the heritage and identity of the club and the feeling of belonging that each and every Bantams fan feels. We certainly won't be relocating the team to Milton Keynes or mucking around with the club crest.

How will your membership help?

As politicians are fond of saying, your vote really counts. The People's Club is built entirely on the concept that the fans know best and the collective decision making power that our members have will ensure success for many years to come.

At the moment, no football club is The People's Club. Bradford City could be - and it can only become so if you sign up and choose the Bantams as the club you think we should make a bid for once we have enough members and therefore enough funds to do so.

Register for free and select Bradford City as your choice for the club we should buy. Then tell all your friends about us - their votes count too! If Bradford City is one of the most popular choices, it stands a very good chance of attracting substantial investment.

We're also on the lookout for a representative in Bradford to encourage fans to sign up, so please contact us if you think you can get enough fans behind you and make Bradford City The People's Club.
