Individuals hailing from various corners of the Bradford district are rallying behind England’s Lionesses football team as they approach their World Cup Final match scheduled for Sunday.
Gerry Barker, the Lord Mayor of Bradford, has recorded a special message to convey his best wishes, and this message will be disseminated across the social media platforms of Bradford Council.
The English flags have been unfurled in Centenary Square, and the illumination of the clock tower at Bradford City Hall in red and white is planned for Sunday. This illumination will be accompanied by the lights surrounding the Mirror Pool in City Park.
On Sunday at 10:30 am, just prior to kick-off, the bells of City Hall will resonate with the anthem of English Football, famously known as ‘Three Lions’.
The Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Gerry Barker, said: “It’s great to see people from across the whole of the district and from all our many communities getting behind the England team and cheering them on throughout this tournament.
“On behalf of the Bradford district, I’d like to send my congratulations to the Lionesses on getting to the final of World Cup and I wish them the very best of luck for Sunday. Come on England. It’s coming home and we know we can do it.”
