AWAY DAY GUIDE: ACCRINGTON STANLEY v BRADFORD CITY

12 October 2018

More than 1,200 City supporters will be travelling to the Wham Stadium tomorrow to watch the Bantams against Accrington Stanley (3.00pm).

The Sky Bet League One season continues 34 miles away from the Northern Commercials Stadium as the Bantams face Accrington Stanley for their thirteenth Sky Bet League One contest.

We have created an Away Day Fan Guide for those making the trip today...

THE GROUND

The Wham Stadium holds around 5,500 (3,100 seated) and is currently one of the smallest stadiums in the football league.

In May 2018, Accrington Stanley were given the green light to knock down and rebuild the 'Whinney Hill Stand' to maximise their capacity by approximately 500.

Those supporters who purchased seating tickets will be located in the Whinney Hill Stand, and standing supporters will be watching the game from the Coppice Terrace.

TICKETS

City supporters can pay on the gate for tomorrow's fixture.

A further allocation of standing tickets were made available during midweek, though seating admission is hugely limited for the Wham Stadium.

Ticket prices are as follows:

Adults

£20

Seniors (64+)

£15

Students

£15

Juniors (12-17 years old)

£10

Under 12s

£5

Disabled supporters pay the necessary admission fee and will qualify for a complimentary carer ticket - if in receipt of DLA or PIP at the mid or enhanced rate.
