Dear Supporters and Members,
Following our correspondence earlier in the year are pleased to confirm that we will be holding our AGM and Fans Forum for 2020, on the revised date of 21st April 2021.
We are pleased to inform you that Ryan Sparks, Bradford City’s CEO has agreed to be our guest at our Fans Forum and that this will be the first of the two events on that evening, the second being our Annual General Meeting.
The Fans Forum and AGM will be an online Zoom event and proceedings will start at 7pm with Ryan Sparks speaking about the Club’s plans with fans being able to submit their questions in advance for him to us at [email protected] . This will be an open meeting for all Bantams fans and we would ask that attendance is confirmed in advance on the email address above, in order to provide the zoom link.
The second half of the evening will be our AGM and will follow the fans forum from 8.15pm to discuss BST aims for the coming year. All Bantams Fans are welcome, although as usual only Trust members are able to vote on BST Motions.
