City had reason to celebrate this Thursday evening after picking up a Silver in the Directors' Choice Awards category during this year's Stadium Events and Hospitality Awards at Hull City's KC Stadium.

The Bantams came second behind Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion in an award which aimed to find the club which gave the best service to visiting directors during home matches last season. 

As a result, the award was voted for by the directors from the other clubs around the country.

This season's Directors' Choice Awards saw the category opened up across the divisions. In previous years when the event was originally called 'The Football Hospitality Awards', such awards had been split up into individual divisions.

The change of name for this year's awards evening represented the fact that rugby league and rugby union sides were allowed in for the first time.

When City were in League 2, the club won the Boardroom of the Year title - an award also voted for by visiting directors - five years on the trot between 2009 and 2013.

With Brighton in first place and City proudly named as runners-up in last night's awards, newly-promoted Premier League side Queens Park Rangers were placed third in the Directors' Choice category.
