Heading to Glanford Park this Sunday (26 March 2017) to cheer on Stuart McCall's side against Scunthorpe United? Here's our helpful guide to the stadium and its surrounding areas.

Stadium capacity: 9,088

Tickets
The club would like to inform supporters that there are a very limited amount of tickets for the weekend's trip to Scunthorpe United that remain.

In the region of 200 tickets for Sunday's fixture remain and, subject to availability, they will be on sale from the Ticket Office until 5.00pm this Friday (24th March 2017).

Purchased tickets can be collected from the club until 5.00pm this Friday (24th March 2017). 

If tickets cannot be collected before the above cut-off, then they will be taken to Scunthorpe United's Glanford Park and they can then be collected from the Scunthorpe United Ticket Office on the day of the fixture (Sunday 26th March 2017).

These few remaining tickets will sell quickly, so if you still wish to attend the highly-anticipated fixture then please act fast!

The club would like to remind supporters that this fixture is ALL-TICKET. City fans will not be able to pay on the day.

Away section
The vast majority of City's away following on Sunday will be located in the South Stand, which is situated behind one of the goals at Glanford Park. This all-seater stand is covered and holds just under 1,700 fans. The Bantams have also been given an allocation of seats in the south corner of the West Stand. This particular section runs down one side of the pitch, and it is also all-seater and under cover.

Getting to Glanford Park

Car
The ground is located on the outskirts of Scunthorpe town centre. After following the M606 and then M62 (East) motorways, take the sliproad left to join the M18. After approximately seven miles, take junction 5 (M180) towards Scunthorpe. Leave the M180 at Junction 3 and take the M181 for Scunthorpe. At the end of this motorway, you will see the ground on your right. Turn right at the first roundabout onto the A18 and right again to head towards the ground.

Train
The nearest train station to Glanford Park is Scunthorpe Train Station. This is situated just over two miles away from the ground, however, so a taxi is probably the best way to get to the game after leaving the station. Should you wish to walk to the ground though, turn left out of the station and head towards the crossroads. Turn right into Oswald Road, going past a set of traffic lights and two pubs. At the next traffic lights, turn left into Doncaster Road and keep going down this road. You will eventually reach Glanford Park on your left.

Bus
Details on bus timetables in the Scunthorpe area can be found via the Stagecoach website - HERE.

Parking
Unreserved car parking spaces are available at Glanford Park at a cost of £3.00 each. Around 600 spaces are usually available on a match-day.

Food & Drink
There are a number of food outlets available within walking distance of Glanford Park, including KFC, Pizza Hut, McDonalds and Frankie & Benny's in the nearby Gallagher Retail Park. There is also a large Tesco superstore close to the stadium. In terms of pubs for visiting supporters, the recommended venue is The Berkeley. This particular pub welcomes away supporters and is located around the corner from the ground. The Old Farmhouse (right at the entrance of the ground) is also an option but they do not welcome any club colours on show.

Cash machines
There is a cash machine available by the side of the Tesco superstore.

Distance
From the Northern Commercials Stadium, Glanford Park is approximately just over 60 miles away. By car, this would take roughly 1 hour and 20 minutes.
