Who Are They ?
Bradford City Women's Football Club provides opportunities for women and girls of all ages to train and play football at the highest possible level in the English football leagues.
We are one of the biggest women's football clubs in the area and welcome players of all ages and ability. The club is run by a willing band of unpaid volunteers.
The club play under the name of Bradford City Women's Football Club, although we are financially independent from Bradford City AFC.
We have to raise all our own funds to enable the players to train and play at the very top of their chosen sport, whilst each player pays to play and has to combine working in their normal day to day jobs or studies, with the considerable demands of training twice a week & playing on a Sunday all over the country.
