LIVE TELEVISION TRANSMISSION OF BRADFORD CITY CUP TIE

That this House agrees with the joint chairman of Bradford City Football Club, Mark Lawn, that the BBC and BT Sport's decision not to show live the team's forthcoming FA Cup match against Sunderland or Fulham is ridiculous and that the broadcasters have shot themselves in the foot; points out City's win at Chelsea was voted the upset of all time by viewers of Match of the Day; notes that the Bantams have scored the most goals of any club in the Cup this season; further notes that the decision will deprive the Club of some £250,000 in revenue; believes that the decision also betrays a fundamental lack of knowledge about football and viewers' popular tastes; and urges the Sports Minister to impress on broadcasters the error of this decision and attempt to persuade them to change it.
