With a massive crowd expected for Saturday’s (22 October 2016) Sky Bet League One home fixture against Sheffield United, Bradford City today (Thursday) have announced that road closures will be in place for the game.
With the game kicking-off at 3:00pm, the road closures will be in place from 1:00pm until around 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 spectators 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.
With the bumper crowd expected, thieves are very likely to target the area.
If you do suffer any crime of this type while attending the game, please report the problem to West Yorkshire Police immediately by calling the non-emergency 101 number.
The Club would also make an early appeal for supporters to arrive as early as possible at the stadium.
Bradford City followers have reacted brilliantly to appeals to come early for this year’s games.
So, with an attendance of over 20,000 expected, we make the appeal again and ask all supporters to arrive at the stadium just those few minutes earlier to make sure they are in their seats for the 3pm kick-off.
Turnstiles will open in all sections of the stadium from 1.30pm.
Thank you for your support for the team and for your efforts in making Saturday’s event a smooth operation for all concerned.
