We are the Bradford Bears, the American football team at the University of Bradford. 


We play a tough game that is rewarding to play and our players are some of the happiest on campus. Here are some of the reasons we believe this team could be for you:


  • Participation
    In a game where there are up to 33 main roster spots and free unlimited substitutions, there is a role for anybody with any kind of physical talent to be involved in. We will make sure you develop and become the best athlete you can be.
  • Inclusivity
    Our players come from all races and cultures that are here in the melting pot of diversity that is Bradford, some of our players drink, some don't.  Some of us pray before games, some of us sing. Whatever motivates you in life, we will respect it. All we ask is for you to do your best on the pitch.
  • Fun
    American football is fun. Its a thrill to line up for your first kickoff, watch your defence make a third down stop, or watch your offence carve up their team. When we're not having a whale of a time on game day, we can be found out on the town on Wednesday night enjoying what Bradford has to offer.


So whether you are new to contact sports or looking for a new challenge, we think that the Bradford Bears would be a terrific choice for you.
