City Chairman to Reward Supporters
The owners of Bradford City have announced they will charge just £1 per match if the club reaches the Premier League. Joint owner Edin Rahic says he can afford to be generous in the top flight thanks to TV money, whilst season tickets for next season stay at £149 even if they are promoted to the Sky Bet Championship.
The former financial director of washing machine giants Bosch Rahic, who owns the club alongside fellow German Stefan Rupp believe they can make a profit, despite only charging one pound.
Even before the duo bought the club, becoming the first Germans to delve into English football. The Bantams had some of the most affordable / lowest season tickets in the league with average attendances around a huge 18,000 a game in Sky Bet League One.
The club have not lost at home in more than a year with Saturday’s 2-1 win over Swindon keeping them in the play-offs.
It is a bold claim, but former Yugoslavia youth international Rahic told The Times, “It’s our dream to be in the Premier League and if we get there the tickets will be £1 per game.”
