The F.A Cup was present at the club's official press event ahead of this Sunday's eagerly-anticipated F.A Cup Fifth Round tie against Premier League side Sunderland.

Members of the local and national media arrived at City's Apperley Bridge training ground at Woodhouse Grove School this Friday to speak with Bantams boss Phil Parkinson and selected players from his squad.

The large numbers of gathered press were keen to talk to Parkinson and his players after their excellent exploits in the F.A Cup so far this season.

To add to the sense of occasion, the F.A Cup was brought out on display just before Parkinson began his main pre-match press conference.

City were lucky enough to enjoy similar scenes just over two years ago when the Capital One Cup was put on show by the Football League ahead of the club's press call for the Arsenal quarter-final tie.

This Friday's visit of the F.A Cup is the second time the famous trophy has visited Bradford recently after it was brought round to City fan Mary Thornton's house last week following the Bantams' memorable win over Chelsea in the previous round.
