Bradford City have announced that throughout the whole of the 2015/16 Sky Bet League One season, the club will be adding a new feature in the run-up to home games. This feature is to be called “You Ask” and will run along the following lines.
In the build up to each home game, the club will nominate a player to go under the spotlight and answer questions posed via social media platforms Facebook and Twitter. First up is new signing, Paul Anderson. Fans are asked to leave a comment using the hashtag #AskAnderson for a chance to have their question answered by the man himself in the Shrewsbury Town home programme.
City fans to open ‘new’ stand at York
Next Tuesday, August 11, 2015, City fans will be a part of the opening of a newly-named stand at the Capital One cup tie against York City. The away end is to be officially used for the first time when the Bantams visit the Minstermen and will be renamed the ‘Prostrate Cancer UK Stand’ for the entirety of the 2015/16 campaign.
Talking about the renaming, York City’s General Manager John McGhee said,
“The partnership we have agreed fits nicely with the Football League Official Charity Partner arrangement and we hope that by naming the away stand it helps to draw attention to this really important issue that affects so many men each year.” John McGhee: Bradford City club website – August 5, 2015

We are the men in Black
Like the Aussie soap opera, Bradford City will be ‘Home and Away’ this Saturday when they entertain Swindon Town (the only team in the top four English divisions without a letter from the word ‘mackerel’ in its name) and give a first league outing to their all-black away strip.
After a non-league, friendly airing against Guiseley and a run-out against Championship Burnley in another friendly, City’s away kit gets its first taste of Sky Bet League One action against Mark Cooper’s Robins in front of a likely rocking Valley Parade.
