Being a football fan can have lots of benefits. It can provide opportunities to; interact with others; get out and do something enjoyable; display a full range of emotions; and contribute to a community. Being a football fan can offer a sense of purpose, identity and belonging with fellow fans.
For people with a learning disability, these benefits can be especially significant.
Bradford City FC is proud of the work it does supporting people with a learning disability in the community and in the stadium.
‘Being a Bantam’ showcases the experience of City fans with a learning disability attending matches – their enthusiasm, enjoyment, commitment and passion. The photographs were taken by City fans with a learning disability while attending home matches.
