TURNSTILE AND ACCESS ARRANGEMENTS FOR SHEFF UTD FIXTURE

19 September 2015

The Club appreciates we are asking a lot with this game starting at 12noon on a Sunday, but if all fans could follow the example they have already set at the first few home games and arrive early, it would be a huge benefit to themselves and the Club.  


So far, home supporters have been great in arriving early for games and, although we know it’s a tough call for this game, if they could do that again it would help us all.  


With supporters giving themselves just those few extra minutes, it avoids build-ups and queues at the turnstiles and ensures everyone is in the stadium for the 12 noon kick-off. .10.30amTurnstiles will be open in every section of the stadium from

 

 

We would also take this opportunity to remind supporters the main Ticket Office will not open at all after each home game.  With the North Stand Kop being close to capacity and the North West Corner now back in use for every game, the ticket office will be closed after each home game to avoid adding to the congestion in that area as supporters leave the stadium.

 

The Club wishes to remind all home supporters of the standard policy that any home supporters who haven’t got a ticket or pass in their possession before the game must buy a ticket from the main ticket office in the North West corner of the stadium before they approach the turnstiles.

 

For Sunday’s Sky Bet League 1 game against Sheffield United (kick-off 12 noon), the following entrances are the easiest way for home supporters to gain entry to the stadium:

 

For the JCT 600 West Stand

  • Supporters with pre-paid tickets - i.e. season tickets, match tickets or flexi-cards where the seats have been paid for in advance - should make their way to turnstiles W4-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 flexi-card who wish to pay cash on the day can enter by turnstiles W3 or W11.
  • Any spectator with no passes or tickets should make their way to the main ticket office in the North West corner of the stadium to make a purchase.

For the North West corner:

  • Supporters with pre-paid tickets - i.e. season tickets, match tickets or flexi-cards where the seats have been paid for in advance - should make their way to turnstiles NW3-NW6.  These turnstiles are located in the North West corner to the left of the main Ticket Office as supporters approach it down the steps from Burlington Street.
  • Supporters with a flexi-card who wish to pay cash on the day can enter by turnstiles NW1-NW2.  These turnstiles are located in the North West corner to the right of the main Ticket Office as supporters approach it down the steps from Burlington Street.

  • Supporters with pre-paid tickets - i.e. season tickets, match tickets or flexi-cards where the seat has been paid for in advance - can also enter both levels of the North Stand Kop through turnstiles N10 - N14 which can be located on Midland Road.
  • Supporters with a flexi-card for the North Stand Kop, who wish to pay cash on the day, can gain access through turnstiles N7-N8 behind the Kop (close to the Bantams Bar entrance).  One turnstile - N9 - which is situated on Midland Road will also be available for flexi-card holders who wish to pay cash on the day to enter both levels of the North Stand Kop.

  • Any spectator with no passes or tickets who wants to sit in Blocks A-E of the stand, should make their way to the main ticket office in the North West corner of the stadium to make a purchase.
  • Supporters who have obtained tickets through the Club’s Community Foundation will be allocated tickets in other areas of the stadium for this game, most of them in the upper sections of the JCT 600 Stand or in the North West Corner (please see above details for the relevant stand). 

Late turnstiles
There will be late turnstiles for each part of the stadium which will remain open until half-time.  There will be two late gates per section with one being for flexi-card holders paying cash on the day and the other for holders of season tickets, match tickets or flexi-cards where the seats have been paid for in advance.

  • For the North West Corner, tickets holders that arrive after kick-off should go to NW6 and late flexi-card cash payers should use NW1.
  • For the North Stand Kop, ticket holders that arrive after kick-off should go to N1, with late flexi-card cash payers using N8 (both of which are behind the Kop - there is no late turnstile for the Kop on Midland Road).
  • For the Northern Commercials (East) Stand, ticket holders that arrive after kick-off (including Community Stand ticket holders) should use E5 with late flexi-card cash players using E6.

Road closures

As announced earlier in the week on the official website, there will be a road closure in place on Sunday.  The road closure will operate on Midland Road (between its junctions with Thorncliffe Road to Cornwall Road) from 10:00am until around 3:00pm.  The bottom of Holywell Ash Lane will also be closed at these times.

 

Supporters are also reminded of the long-term road works on Queen’s Road (although Bradford City FC has spoken to the contractors who will attempt to keep any disruption to a minimum).  


In addition, supporters are reminded of the need to secure their vehicles and remove any valuables from view.  


Finally, Sunday sees the sixth annual Sky Bike Ride taken place in the Bradford city centre.  This is a family-friendly event that will see many city centre roads being closed to vehicles between the hours of 9:00am and 2:00pm; please avoid the city centre and approach the Coral Windows Stadium from other routes.
