About Bradford City Football Club

Immediately after the foundation of the club in 1903, he was declared in the Second Division of the Football League, in 1908 he rose to the top division, and in 1911 he won the FA Cup – the only major trophy to this day.

After relegating from the First Division in 1922, the club spent 77 years outside the English Premier League before reaching the Premier League in 1999. Bradford City survived its first season in the 1999/00 Premier League, gaining only 36 points, which at that time was a record. The next season, the club took part in the Intertoto Cup, in which it reached the semifinals, where it lost to Zenit – this is the only participation of Bradford City in European club tournaments. In the same season, he finished last in the Premier League and left her irrevocably. Since then, a series of financial crises brought the club to the brink of bankruptcy and influenced its rapid descent 3 steps down for 7 seasons: the 07/08 season for the first time in 26 years, Bradford City started in the Second Football League, where it was before the season 13/14.

The main achievement of the club in modern history can be considered participation in the final of the English League Cup 2012/13. Thus, Bradford City became the representative of the 4th division level of England in the League Cup final, repeating the achievement of the Rochdale club in 1962. At the 1/4 final stage, the team managed to beat Arsenal in the penalty shootout, which is one of the club’s biggest victories in recent history. In the semifinal, Aston Villa 4: 3 was beaten by the sum of two matches. In the February 24 finals, at the Wembley Stadium, Bradford City lost to Welsh Swansea City 0–5.

Over the course of its history, the club was led by more than 40 coaches, all of whom were originally from the British Isles, and the club also had only a few non-British players. In 2010, Peter Taylor, who previously coached the England youth team, became the club’s coach. The current coach, Phil Parkinson, was appointed to this position on August 28, 2011.
