Bradford (Park Avenue) are excited to confirm that next season, we will be offering fans not one, but two ways to enjoy our newly revamped match day programme. Following consultation with our fans, and internal discussions, we are excited to announce that alongside our traditional offering of a physical copy, we are making a move towards the future and will be offering fans the option to download our programme via an app on your phone or tablet.
Football Operations Manager Calum Cullen said; ‘We have been looking at ways to make sure we can cater for all our fans, not just those who attend the games, but fans who might not be able to get down, or live away from the Horsfall, and this solution allows us to do this. With just a few clicks on your device, you can download our programme and have it with you forever. As the world moves towards a modern digital lifestyle, we wanted to ensure the club kept up with the wants and needs of the digital generation. At the same time we were appreciative that there are fans out there who would still like to be able to have a physical copy, and we want to delight them as well.’
Dave Stordy, of the development fund; ‘I am happy that the club have decided to keep the physical program for those hardened programme collectors, and I’m aware there are several of us within the club. I know the club appreciates what a programme from a match means to us and will continue, for the foreseeable future, to produce a paper version of the match-day programme. The digital solution that the club are proposing to run along side the traditional programme I hope will increase the number of people who enjoy reading the latest news about what’s going on in and around the club. Calum has consulted with myself and few other fans to make sure that our views were reflected in this key decision for the club.’
Will Biggs Managing Director of MatchDayInfo added
‘We are really pleased to be working with Bradford Park Avenue ahead of the 2020/21 season. If you are unable to make it to the fixture or prefer to read the match day programme on your smartphone/tablet, then MatchDayInfo is the answer, we can bring the match day experience to you. We have a good following in the Vanarama North League which is ideal for the Bradford Park Avenue fanbase, never miss match day content for both home and away games’
The newly designed program will be 36 pages crammed full of news, stats and views from those within the club and community. As physical numbers available might be limited it might be an idea to secure a copy from Dave Stordy (Development fund) who can reserve you a copy to pick up on match-day. These should be pre-ordered 48 hours before a game. Dave also offers via the Program Shop the option to order a full seasons programmes in advance of the season starting (several supporters already do this for both home and away programmes).
