We made history - one year on

24 February 2014

This Monday (24 February 2014) marks the one-year anniversary of City's amazing appearance in last season's Capital One Cup Final against Premier League side Swansea City.

In front of millions worldwide and a full house at Wembley Stadium, the Bantams took their place in a major cup final for the first time in nearly 102 years.

It was a history-making moment many thought wouldn't be possible, and it is certainly a day that most City fans will never forget.

The scoreline might not have gone City's way on the day, but the mere achievement of making the Capital One Cup Final - the club's first-ever appearance in a League Cup Final - was mind-boggling enough.

After the highs of Wigan, Arsenal and Aston Villa in the previous rounds, the sight of thousands and thousands of City flags flying proudly in the February sky during the last twenty minutes or so of the final topped off an almost-perfect cup campaign for Phil Parkinson's men.
