TODAY marks the 36th anniversary since the Bradford City Fire which claimed the lives of 56 football supporters.

A total of 54 Bantams fans and two supporters of their opponents on May 11, 1985, Lincoln City, died at Valley Parade that day.

The annual memorial service will be held online from 11am today, instead of the traditional occasion at Centenary Square, due to the coronavirus crisis.

Here’s a collection of tweets from Bradford City fans and faces with a link to the club.
