With a capacity crowd expected at the Coral Windows Stadium for this Sunday’s (15 February 2015) FA Cup Fifth Round tie with Sunderland, the club have today (Thursday 12 February 2015) confirmed that road closures will be in place on Midland Road.
With the game scheduled to kick off at 2.30pm, the road closures will be in place from 12.30pm until 5.30pm.
Midland Road will be closed from its junction with Thorncliffe Road right through to its junction with Cornwall Road.
The lower section of Holywell Ash Lane will also be closed from its junction with Lupton Street.
Access to the disabled parking spaces in front of Rear Rock Terrace will still be allowed from the Thorncliffe Road closure point.
Any spectator wishing to park on the car park off Midland Road (an area not operated by Bradford City FC) are asked to access that area from the direction of Hamm Strasse.
The club would also like to take this opportunity to remind people travelling to the stadium by car to make sure that their car is left secure and that no valuables are on view.
West Yorkshire Police have done a lot of work this season to reduce car crime in the area during first team matches, but thieves will be aware of the expected high attendance and may target the area.
So, supporters are asked to help themselves and back-up the work of the Police by securing their car and hiding any valuables.
Finally the Club would also make its first appeal for supporters to arrive as early as possible at the stadium.
The game is a sell-out and may include supporters who have not been to the stadium for a while.
Therefore, everyone attending the game is asked to be in their seats by 2:00pm to make sure that there is no congestion at the turnstiles as we approach kick-off.
