Doorsan is based in Bradford and the local football team is Bradford City FC. For those who don't know, Bradford City are currently positioned 11th in League 2 and amazed many to make it to the Capital One Cup final on Sunday 24th Feb. The first fourth tier club ever to reach a major final at Wembley, Bradford beat three Premier League teams to reach the final (Wigan Athletic, Arsenal and Aston Villa).
Thousands of fans, including a couple from the Doorsan office, headed down to Wembley for the Cup Final against Swansea City. You'll be familiar with the journey of the local team whether you're a football fan or not, especially if you live in or near West Yorkshire. A true underdog team, the Bantams surprised many as they defeated Premier giants in the run up to the Final.
Playing for a place in Europe next year, reaching this Final was a proud moment for players and fans alike and the level of support was impressive. Some 32,000 fans made the trip down to Wembley to support their team.
With the odds against them, Bradford City turned up ready for a tough match, however their dreams were never meant to be. The Premier League side outclassed the Bantams and the underdogs failed to shine in a heavy defeat. No amount of cheering and shouting from a strong set of supporters could change the result.
Whilst there will be many sad fans now, you have to admire the achievement of the Bradford boys. Reaching the final is an amazing accomplishment and certainly worth celebrating.
From all at Doorsan, well done to the Bantams - a fantastic effort from all!
