SEASON TICKETS - 2016/17
2016/2017 Season Ticket and FlexiCards are available to buy in person via the Bantams Ticket Office, over the phone (0871 978 8000) and online - please click HERE.
Supporters over the age of 16 - adults, senior citizens and students - will once again be asked to pay only £149.00 for their 2016/2017 season ticket.
That amazing price works out at an average of only £6.50 a game for fans attending every match, cheaper than any other league club in the local area and offering arguably the best value anywhere to watch professional sport in the UK.
Junior season tickets will remain at only £99.00.
Disabled supporters will be asked to pay the age-appropriate price (i.e. adults £149.00, juniors £99.00).
Fans will also be entitled to a free carer's seat/space should they require one providing that they receive DLA or PIP at the mid or higher rate.
Anyone looking to purchase a season ticket for a disabled supporter must produce a letter proving entitlement to DLA or PIP at the mid or higher range of assistance. This applies even if proof has been shown in previous seasons.
The hugely popular FlexiCard will also be available once again to supporters for only £50.00.
Twenty-five year season-ticket holders will be asked to pay £110, which includes once again a free suite upgrade. Admission for under-11s is free (after a £5.00 admin charge) in conjunction with the purchase of an adult ticket.
The season ticket offer will run until Sunday, July 17.

SEASON TICKET APPLICATION FORMS
2016-2017 Season Ticket application forms can now be downloaded using the link here - 2016-2017 APPLICATION FORM
UNDER 11s POLICY UPDATE - SEASON TICKET
A full paying season ticket holder may obtain a maximum of two season tickets for fans who are under eleven on August 1 2016, free-of-charge subject to a payment of a £5.00 administration fee for each under 11 ticket.
A full paying season ticket holder is described as an adult or senior citizen or student paying the full price for the season ticket. The application for the free under 11 season tickets must be made at the same time as the application is made for the full-price season ticket. This offer cannot be extended to junior season ticket holders (aged between 11 and 15) or FlexiCard holders.
A FlexiCard membership entitles a supporter to reduced admission* on any match-day ticket they purchase for their reserved seat at the Valley Parade for a League One home fixture. FlexiCards are not available for either the Corporate Suite or the Bantams Bar.
* reduced admission is:
Bradford City FC introduced the FlexiCard system in 2012/13 and its success has resulted in it staying in force for the past four seasons. In short, the FlexiCard enables a supporter to pay £50.00 to reserve a seat at Valley Parade with that same supporter then paying only reduced prices* for match day tickets in advance or on the day of the game. Feedback shows us that supporters are delighted with the FlexiCard concept; please read the details below carefully and help us to keep the scheme in operation.
This statement is intended to help supporters to get the best use out of the FlexiCard system. Supporters are asked to follow these straightforward guidelines to help them get into the stadium easily and in time for the kick-off of each game.
Use your allocated seat - we would remind you that you need to use the seat allocated on the rear of your FlexiCard. Using other seats can lead to disruption of other spectators and with the large crowds anticipated in League One going directly to your own seat will help all concerned.
Use the correct turnstiles - if you are paying cash at the turnstiles with your FlexiCard for games, please note that there will be a limited number of turnstiles specifically allocated to cash-paying FlexiCard(s) holders.
For The Kop, you will be able to use Turnstiles N2 and N9 and N10 (N2 is behind The Kop close to the ticket office while N9 and N10 are on Midland Road)
For the Northern Commercials Stand, you will be able to use Turnstiles E2 and E3 on Midland Road.
For the Main Stand, you will be able to use Turnstiles W4 and W11 in the Directors’ car park (one turnstile either side of the glass doors leading to banqueting).
Pre-book your tickets - we would recommend strongly that whenever possible you obtain your ticket for the game in advance. While you can’t book your FlexiCard match tickets online, you can book and pay for them in person at the ticket office or over the telephone (0871 978 8000 - please note calls to this line are charged at 10p per minute plus network extras). Once you have your ticket - which will be a different design to all other match day tickets - you will be able to use any of the other “pre-paid ticket” turnstiles:
For The Kop please use turnstiles N3-N8 (behind The Kop) or turnstiles N11-N14 (on Midland Road)
For the Northern Commercials Stand please use turnstiles E4-E10
For the Main Stand please use turnstiles W5-W10 or W12-W18
Please note that the turnstiles in use may vary from time-to-time depending upon pre-match sales.
Turnstile security - in addition to the FlexiCard tickets being totally different to the regular match day tickets, we will be increasing the levels of security at the turnstiles to ensure the cards are not abused as happened in some instances in previous seasons.
Just one last point - if would be helpful if all supporters could get to the stadium just 10-15 minutes earlier - it eases congestion outside and ensures that all supporters get into their seats in time for kick-off for every game in what promises to be another exciting season.
Thanks again for getting behind the team!
Supporters can pay monthly for their 2016/2017 Season Ticket. Please contact the ticket office (0871 978 8000) at Valley Parade for further information
