There has been a sudden surge of interest in this game from fans of both Clubs and the number of coaches now expected from Rotherham United has increased.
Therefore, the Club has today Friday) agreed with West Yorkshire Police that a road closure on Midland Road will be implemented for this 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 until all places have been taken up.
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 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.
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 around 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 3:00pm 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.
