Young fan supports City Status for Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough FC and thousands of its loyal fans flew the flag for the town’s city status bid on March 18th during a winning match against Watford.

The town is one of a number bidding for sought-after city status as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations next year.

City status has the potential to raise the profile of an area and attract both investment and tourism and work is well under way to make as strong a case as possible for Middlesbrough.

Boro fans and the football club created a great atmosphere of support for the bid with thousands of city status flags waving in the stadium.
