Bantams bid to break Christmas jumper world record

Bradford City Christmas Jumpers

The Bradford City football club will be attempting to break a world record during the Sky Bet League 1 fixture with Scunthorpe United at the Coral Windows Stadium.

12,000 people are expected at the stadium tomorrow as the club attempts to break the record for the most people gathered wearing Christmas jumpers.

The current record stands at 639 people which was achieved last year by Three (UK) at the Freeze Festival, London.

As part of the attempt, all supporters including those supporting Scunthorpe United, have been urged to wear their jumpers and to support by tweeting with the hashtag #getyourjumperon.

Those wearing a Christmas jumper will be given a raffle ticket when entering the stadium and at full-time, a winner will be announced.

The prize will be a free season ticket for next season.
