A month ago many of you may have read in the local T&A about this project being granted approval and celebration of first day of laying the foundations of the new construction, which will include a new floodlit 4G pitch and sport centre behind the back of Valley Parade.
Led by BEAP Community Partnership, and funded by Football Foundation, Power To Change, Sports England and Bradford Council, the project will be completed by June 2022, and during the course of the next football season will have a family orientated Fanzone for home and away fans to meet and maybe have a kickabout in the build up to home matches. There are plans to arrange five-a-side games between Bangla Bantams and visiting fans on matchdays as well.
Humayun Islam who is the Chief Executive of BEAP, got Shapla FC and Bangla Bantams going in 2015 that draws in the local Asian, predominantly Bangladeshi Community behind supporting Bradford City and engage with other Asian football supporters across the Country.
Once Fans For Diversity lead, Anwar Uddin discovered the BEAP Centre and Humayun in 2014, they have had their support since.
The Trust became aware, have become supporters of all their achievements and we came along to the press launch of Bangla Bantams and the Fans For Diversity/Kick It Out Community Day back in February 2015.
