Ahead of this Tuesday's Checkatrade Trophy game with Rotherham United at the Northern Commercials Stadium, the Club would like to respectfully remind supporters that the match will kick off at the slightly earlier time of 7:30pm.
We appreciate that evening matches can be a rush for some supporters due to work and other commitments, but if fans can make that little extra effort to be here early it will help everyone to get into the stadium for kick-off.
Added to that, it is anticipated that most fans will be paying cash on the night (which is a slower entry process) and with the essential searching, please get here as soon as you can to gain access to the stadium.
Turnstiles in every section will be open from 6.30pm.
Season tickets and FlexiCards are not valid for Tuesday's game and the season ticket scanning system will not be in operation.
There will be no home turnstiles available on Midland Road.
The JCT 600 West Stand will be accessible through the usual turnstiles in the Directors’ car park and the North Stand Kop (lower level only) will be accessible via the turnstiles at the back of the Kop (close to the ticket office and Bantams Bar).
The following sections of the stadium will be open for Tuesday's match:
JCT 600 (West) Stand - turnstile W3 will be a ticket only turnstile for the people who have bought tickets in advance. W4 and W11 will open for adults only at £10. W7&W8 and W12&W13 will open as family gates taking adults at £10 concessions at £5 and juniors at £1. The late gate (open until half-time) will be W4 which is on the Valley Parade side of the stand. Supporters in wheelchairs can gain access to the JCT 600 West Stand via Gate WD on Valley Parade or via the 1911 Club reception using the lift.
North Stand Kop lower section – only the turnstiles behind the Kop will be open for this game (i.e. none on Midland Road). N2 will be open for Adults paying £10 with the turnstiles alongside – N3&4 are open as family gates taking adults at £10 concessions at £5 and juniors at £1. Turnstiles N1 will also be open as ticket only. Supporters in wheelchairs can gain access to the North Stand Kop through the One-in-a-Million school compound and then through Gate ND.
Supporters are reminded that in line with legislation and the EFL ground regulations, the entire stadium, including the seating areas, concourses, stairways, turnstiles and toilets, is a no-smoking area. The use of electronic cigarettes in all parts of the stadium is also forbidden.
Supporters are also asked not to bring bags to the stadium. Where this is unavoidable, all bags will need to be searched before entry can be allowed. Items included on the EFL ground regulations that are deemed to be a potential risk, including bottles and aerosols, will not be allowed into the stadium.
In addition, supporters will not be allowed to record or live-stream any of the live match action. The Club has been reminded by the EFL of its obligations to prevent live footage of the game being stored, recorded or transmitted and stewards will take appropriate action if this regulation is contravened.
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 number of people coming to the game, thieves may 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.
In addition, we would ask anyone parking up for the game to park responsibly and not obstruct access to residential or business premises or to block access ways for emergency vehicles to the stadium or other premises in the area. There will be no road closure in place for this game.
Enjoy the game!
