Turnstiles details for Blades match

23 August 2013

Following City’s confident start to the new season, the club's first Yorkshire derby of the season against Sheffield United this Saturday (24 August 2013) is expected to attract a large crowd to the Coral Windows Stadium.


Early ticket sales have been very good, and the ground configuration for the game will see Sheffield United fans using the TL Dallas (South) Stand and Blocks F & G of the Northern Commercials (East/Midland Road) Stand.

 

Therefore, the turnstiles will be opening from 1.30pm and fans are asked to come early to the stadium.


In addition, anyone who has yet to pick-up their Season Ticket and/or FlexiCard is being asked to do this as soon as possible if they intend to come to the Sheffield United game.


As usual, collections for Season Tickets and FlexiCards will cease at 12noon at the Bantams Ticket Office on Saturday prior to the build-up of the Sheffield United game.

 

Full details are provided below of the entrances that supporters should use for Saturday’s game versus Sheffield United.

 

For the Main West Stand

  • Supporters with pre-paid tickets - i.e. Season Tickets, match tickets or FlexiCards where the seats have been paid for in advance - should make their way to turnstiles W5-W10 or W12-W18.  These turnstiles are all located in the Directors’ car park either side of the glass doors that lead to the banqueting areas.
  • Supporters with a FlexiCard who wish to pay cash on the day can enter by turnstiles W4 or W11.
  • Supporters for the Main West Stand who haven’t pre-booked and wish to pay cash can enter via turnstile W3 (which is the turnstile nearest to Valley Parade)

For the North Stand Kop

  • Supporters with pre-paid tickets - i.e. Season Tickets, match tickets or FlexiCards where the seats have been paid for in advance - should make their way to turnstiles N3 or N4 and N5-N8, all of which are located behind the Kop
  • Supporters with pre-paid tickets - i.e. Season Tickets, match tickets or FlexiCards where the seats has been paid for in advance – can also enter the North Stand Kop through turnstiles N11 - N14 which can be located on Midland Road
  • Supporters with a FlexiCard who wish to pay cash on the day can enter by turnstile N2 behind the Kop or via turnstiles N9-N10 which are located on Midland Road.  Due to the likely congestion around the Club’s Ticket Office, supporters needing to use the FlexiCard cash turnstiles for the Kop are asked to use the Midland Road entrances
  • Supporters for the North Stand Kop who haven’t pre-booked and wish to pay cash can enter via turnstile N1, which again is behind the Kop.

For the Northern Commercial (East) Stand

  • Supporters with a FlexiCard who wish to pay cash on the day can enter the Northern Commercials Stand by turnstiles E2 or E3
  • Please note there is no cash only option for the Northern Commercials Stand for this game - supporters wishing to pay full rates in cash should make their way to the Upper level of the Main West Stand via turnstile W3 in the Directors’ car park.

Other points to note:

  • The cash only turnstiles (W3 for the Main West Stand and N1 for the North Stand Kop) offer no choice of seats and only take cash.  Any supporter wishing to have a choice of seats or pay by credit or charge cards must go to the club’s Ticket Office
  • Restrictions will again be in place in the area of the Ticket Office to avoid any crowd congestion in that area - supporters are asked to keep clear of this area unless they have a specific reason for approaching the stadium via this route
  • The club will continue its policy of having a late entry gate in each section of the stadium.  This gate will stay open until half-time. W3 will be the late gate for the Main West Stand, N1 for the North Stand Kop and E1 for the Northern Commercials Stand.
  • The Ticket Office will remain open until kick-off and then re-open for a short period after the game; it will close as soon as any customers queuing at the Ticket Office have been served.
