bantamspast.co.uk is an ever-growing record and celebration of the history of Bradford City Football Club: from FA Cup victory to the fire disaster, the depths of Division 4 to the Premier League, it's all here. And alongside accounts of such big events are reminders of players and matches perhaps less remarkable in terms of success or failure. They are however no less significant in our collective memory and in what makes us all supporters of what we believe to be the world's greatest football club.
bantamspast.co.uk evolved from the highly successful ‘100 Years of Claret & Amber’ exhibition, held to celebrate Bradford City’s Centenary at the Bradford Industrial Museum. Over 10,000 fans visited the exhibition, which ran from 21 September-16 November 2003. We’ve combined text from the exhibition storyboards with images of the exhibits to give a virtual tour and allow the exhibition to live on. We hope this site will become a focal point for those interested in the history of Bradford City. Indeed, we expect that the site will evolve and expand. Contributions will be the lifeblood of this project. Scanning programmes, photographs, recording interviews or researching the missing history of the club takes valuable time. We welcome with open arms all who wish to help in anyway they feel fit. This is your project, one for and by ordinary Bradford City fans. The sole aim is to record City’s history and make it available to as many Bradfordians as possible.
