We are heading over to West Yorkshire tomorrow afternoon for our latest Sky Bet League Two match against Bradford City. All the important information for supporters making the trip is included in Kristine Green’s Away Day Guide.
What kit are we in for this game?
We’re in pink for this game.
What’s the ticket information?
Any tickets left are available at the ground on the day, priced as follows:
Adult – £25.00
Seniors (65+) – £20.00
Young Person (17-23) – £20.00
Youth (12-16) – £10.00
Junior (11 and under) – £5.00
How do I get to the ground?
The postcode for the ground is BD8 7DY
Exit the M62 at junction 26 for the M606 to Bradford. At the end of the road use the right-hand lane and take the right road east, signposted A6177 – City Centre. From here the stadium is well signposted with the usual football image.
What stand are we in?
We have both the TL Dallas Stand behind the goal and blocks F and G of the Bradford Lift Stand.
When do turnstiles open?
Turnstiles open 90 minutes before kick-off. Please ensure that you look to enter the stadium via the correct turnstiles for the ticket that you have to avoid any delays.
Where is the best place to park?
There is a small car park on Midland Road, near the away end which charges a nominal fee. As this is on the main road that passes the stadium it will take a short while to leave after the game.
Otherwise, it is street parking or in one of the car parks in the city centre which is about a 20-minute walk uphill to the stadium.
Parking for disabled supporters?
Midland Road is permitted for blue badge holders.
What is the nearest train station to the stadium and what is the approximate distance and walking time?
The stadium is served by two train stations and which one you use depends on your matchday requirements.
If you want a beer in the town centre beforehand then you want the Bradford Interchange from Leeds. This is quite a walk – however, taxis are available.
Alternatively, Bradford Forster Square from Leeds is only 10 minutes from the ground but takes you to the retail park rather than a pub.
Recommended pubs for away fans?
The Bradford Arms on Manningham Lane, has a beer garden and is literally near the ground if you don’t fancy the trek into the town centre, where there are a number of other pubs. This is a good 20-minute walk, though.
Food available in the area?
The Forster Square Retail park has a McDonalds and there are a number of fast food outlets near the Bradford Arms on Manningham Lane.
Where is the nearest cash machine to the Stadium?
The nearest cash machine is on Manningham Road services or the Canal Road service station. These may charge for cash withdrawals.
What food and drink is available on the concourse at the stadium?
The usual hot/cold food and drinks items will be available on the concourse of both stands. A quick reminder that the Bradford Lifts stand will be serving alcohol but the TL Dallas stand is strictly alcohol free.
The stadium is cashless so only contactless or card payments are accepted.
What is the process for supporters looking to bring flags into the stadium?
Flags will be allowed providing the club have enough space on seats, this maybe a little tricky having nearly sold our full allocation. Please speak to a nearby steward for advice.
Anything else we need to know?
The stadium is strictly no smoking, which includes the use of vapes and other similar products. Anybody found to be smoking will be ejected immediately – the club has a zero-tolerance policy on this across the whole stadium.
There will be a minute’s applause before kick off in honour of Professor David Sharpe, the founder of Bradford’s Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit (PSBRU).
Professor Sharpe sadly passed away recently at the age of 77.
The PSBRU has extremely strong links to the football club as it was created following the 1985 Valley Parade fire disaster. We invite our supporters to join those of the home side in honouring his memory.
We hope all travelling supporters have a safe trip over to Valley Parade – see you there!
