Recruitment Philosophy


To identify talented players across all the age group phases with players being selected as a result of having the essential specific attributes as well as having the willingness to improve their own development and wanting to develop, and having the willingness and potential to become a professional footballer at Bradford City Football Club.

If a player at all does not receive a professional contract after being involved within the Academy, the individual has improved personal and life skills. Efforts made will be put forward into placing the individual into another football club.
