The football club can confirm that there will be a change of plans in regards to selling tickets for the second (away) leg of City's League 2 Play-Off Semi-Final with Burton Albion.
. Saturday 4 May 2013 from 8:00amThe limited number of tickets available will now go on sale to Season Ticket and FlexiCard holders on a 1:1 basis on
The Bantams Ticket Office will remain open on Saturday while stocks of the Burton Albion tickets last.
The 1:1 selling ratio means that supporters can buy one Burton away ticket for every 2012/13 Season Ticket or FlexiCard in their possession, for example, someone with four Season Tickets and two FlexiCards in their possession at the Bantams Ticket Office can buy six tickets for the Burton away game.
As previously announced, there can be no internet offer for the away tickets for this game.
In addition, there can be no telephone sales as Burton Albion cannot offer a ticket collection service for large numbers of supporters.
City’s Director of Operations, David Baldwin said: “This is a football decision - the idea of selling tickets after the game ticks all the boxes with regard to safety and reducing inconvenience to fans, however, the prospect of fans potentially leaving the stadium during a crucial part of such an important game is something we would not want to see.
"We hope that this decision will enable all Bradford City fans to get behind the team from the first minute to the last”.
The decision to issue tickets after the first leg was taken to make best use of match-day security and Ticket Office staff who will be working at Thursday’s match and, more importantly, to try and avoid fans having to take time off work or from school on a week day to try and get a ticket.
Originally Saturday selling had been avoided because fans will have the problem of booking travel arrangements for a 12noon kick off on the next day or cancelling travel arrangements if they don’t get a ticket.
However, feedback suggests that fans would sooner have this problem than waiting to obtain tickets for the match late on Thursday night.
The Ticket Office will be closed on Friday 3With the building work that is happening close to stadium, queues for the away tickets will be through gate WH of the Co-operative Main (West) Stand. May.
