    I purchased this domain a few months ago to develop as a Bradford City fansite but it could also work for Birmingham City or Bristol City.

    I've contacted the club to seek permission to use the site as a fansite and whilst they would prefer that I didn't they conceed that they are "powerless to prevent anybody from starting one up" (I have this in writing). I'm assuming this would apply to the other clubs also.

    The site has now been designed and developed using wordpress but there is no content as yet.

    There is not enough data for the search term 'bcafc' but 'bradford city' and 'bradford city fc' received 40500 and 12100 local exact searches in August. Birmingham and Bristol receive similar figures.

    Any ideas as to its current/potential value?

    Thanks,

    As far as I'm aware Bradford City, Bristol City & Birmingham City don't use the acronym BCAFC- so unless I've got it wrong I'd say it wasn't worth anything.

    I think the "a" stands for association.

    The 'A' stands for Associated. Many clubs do have this in their official team name.

    But not any of the ones mentioned? I don't see much value in it I'm afraid.

    Yes - Bradford City Associated Football Club.

    Not sure if the others have the 'A' but as a Bradford fan that doesn't bother me.

    Thanks for the appraisals so far.

    I cant see any value in this one at all and I stuggle to see how it will ever be worth more that reg.
