Lots of people look forward to football matches to escape everyday life. But it was different for Bradford City’s Asian community – until Bangla Bantams came along.
The Bantams were set up by Humayan Islam, who has a full-time job and also coaches football. The group makes the community feel more confident.
Islam says, “We want to bring people together through football and make sure everybody feels confident embracing the local football team and has fun in the process.”
