Bradford (Park Avenue) are delighted to announce a new partnership with local neighbours Bradford City AFC Women
The new partnership opens a strong pathway for both teams, with dual registrations and loan arrangements being an integral part of the partnership, allowing further development and experience for both teams. It will also provide Bradford’s female footballers with great opportunities in Semi Pro Football.
City Women will be using the Horsfall for their home fixtures, with the first being on 27th February v Norton & Stockton Ancients in the FA Women’s National League Division One North. It’s a “pay what you want” scheme for the match, with tickets for the clubs fundraising raffle available, and a first prize being a signed City Women’s shirt.
Club Secretary Calum Cullen had this to say on the partnership: “This is a brilliant agreement for both Bradford (Park Avenue) and Bradford City’s ladies sides.
We have been working on this deal for some time now, and throughout the talks I have been impressed with the professionalism and the planned progression of Bradford City Women’s.
The fact that they are keen to play here at the Horsfall shows what a great set up we have here, and myself, Neal (Asquith Ladies Manager), and the whole club are looking forward to seeing the partnership develop.”
City manager Chris Hames said;
“Horsfall is an historic ground that in recent years has undergone great development to become one of the primary facilities in the region, let alone Bradford. That mirrors our ambition, we want to reflect off the pitch the same ambitions we have on it, and take this club onwards.
“I’m looking forward to setting up a base here, creating a following here, and commencing this new chapter in the club’s progression”.
