Bradford City: Club Profile
Our first few meetings with Bradford City normally gave us something to get excited about. Not so much in 2019-20, though. We first played the Bantams during our 2010–1 League Two promotion campaign. Then we met again in our 2013-4 relegation campaign. So, you can see why something is normally going on in the background when our paths meet.
To be fair, that would also include the 2019-20 season if we hadn’t been spared relegation. But there was more than enough drama during that campaign to be getting on with. We do think we’re now due a promotion on their watch, however. We’ll get back to you on that.

Players For Us... and Them
Bradford City Ground Information
Away Fans’ Stand
Mamma Mia Stand (and TJ Dallas Stand if needs be)
Facilities for Disabled Fans
For away fans who use wheelchairs, there are spaces within the away section of the TL Dallas Stand. The club does recommend you book a place in advance, however. The same provisions made for fans using wheelchairs extend to ambulant disabled fans. All tickets are charged at the full rate appropriate to the stand – but carers are admitted free.
If you have a visual impairment, there are two radios available and you can book one in advance by contacting the club. A guide dog can also attend a game on request.
Just two minutes from the ground and letting away fans in the door is the Bradford Arms on Manningham Lane. The Cartwright Hotel, meanwhile, is 10 minutes from the stadium away from the city centre and allows use of the bar.
In the ground, beer is on sale in the Mamma Mia Stand – but not the TL Dallas Stand.
Bradford City Travel Information – Distance: 175 miles
Leave Stevenage by joining the northbound A1(M) and continue onto the A1 when the motorway ends at Baldock. Remain on the A1 and the A1(M) in its various guises for 145 miles before joining the westbound M62 towards Leeds and Manchester. After 20 miles, join the M606 for Bradford before exiting at J3 for the Bradford-bound A6177.
At traffic lights, turn right onto the A641 and continue for about a mile before taking the 1st exit at a roundabout for the A6181. Little over a mile later, turn left at traffic lights for the A650 towards Manningham. After half a mile more, Valley Parade will be on the right hand side.
The best option closest to the ground will be on-street parking. Otherwise, take a trek into central Bradford.
Station: BRADFORD FORSTER SQUARE
Services to: STEVENAGE
The walk from the station is not a long one by any means; less than a mile and around 20 minutes in fact. Come out of the station and head out on St Blaise Way. Turn left into Valley Road and walk the length of the superstore before another left turn into Hamme Strasse. After crossing the railway bridge, turn right into Midland Road and continue along here until the stadium appears on the left hand side.
