TURNSTILE/ENTRY DETAILS FOR OLDHAM MATCH

15 January 2016

Welcome back to the first home game of 2016!  We are anticipating a great turn-out for the Oldham Athletic game and, as always, would ask all fans to get to the stadium as early as possible on Saturday.  The game will kick-off at 3:00pm and turnstiles in all sections will be open from 1.30pm.  It is much appreciated by everyone at the Club when spectators arrive early at the stadium and it helps to ensure that spectators miss none of the action.

 

Another reason for getting to the stadium as early as possible is that additional security checks will be in place for this game.  Supporters are asked not to bring bags to the stadium but when that is unavoidable, please note that it will be necessary to check all bags prior to entry.  This may slow down the entry process a little, so spectators are asked to have their tickets ready for inspection and co-operate with stewards as they carry out this important task.  Bags checks will be conducted at every point of entry to the stadium including turnstiles and banqueting facilities.

 

We would also take this opportunity to remind supporters that 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 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 this Saturday’s home game against Oldham Athletic (kick-off 3:00pm), the following entrances are the easiest way 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 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 should make their way to the main ticket office in the North West corner of the stadium to make a purchase.

  • Supporters with a flexi-card who wish to pay cash on the day can enter the Northern Commercials Stand by only one turnstile, which is E6.
  • Supporters who have obtained tickets for the game through the scheme with the Club’s Community Foundation should enter via turnstiles - E11-E12.
  • 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.

 

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 JCT 600 (West) Stand, tickets holders that arrive after kick-off should go to W4, with late flexi-card cash payers using W3.

  • 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 and breaks-ins

There will be no road closure in place on Midland Road for this game.  For any supporters travelling to the game by car, please remember to make sure your vehicle is secure when you leave it and that any valuables are either removed from the car entirely or placed out of sight while your car is parked up for the game.  Please follow this straightforward advice to try and avoid your day at Bradford City FC being spoiled by thoughtless thieves getting into your vehicle.  West Yorkshire Police have confirmed that incidents of thefts from cars have reduced in the first half of the season (City fans given vehicle crime reminder) but please do everything possible to avoid getting caught out in this way.

 

Coral Windows Stadium is a no-smoking arena

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity of reminding all supporters that, in accordance with legislation and the Football League regulations, the entire stadium is a no-smoking area.  This includes the viewing areas, concourses, toilets and stairways.  In addition, the Club has imposed a ban on the use of e-cigarettes within the stadium.  We would request that all supporters abide by the bans that are in place for all tobacco products and e-cigarettes for every home game.
