AWAY DAY GUIDE: SCUNTHORPE v CITY

27 April 2019

The Bantams take on Scunthorpe United this afternoon and we have put together a helpful Away Day Guide to help you enjoy all of today's action ahead of the 3.00pm contest.

STADIUM ADDRESS

Glanford Park

Jack Brownsword Way

Scunthorpe

DN15 8TD

PYROTECHNICS & BEHAVIOUR

The club would like to remind supporters that carrying pyrotechnics into a football ground or using them is strictly prohibited.

Those found to be carrying or using pyrotechnics will face a long-term ban.

We would like to remind supporters it is a criminal offence to go on to pitch at any time.

Anyone who does so without permission can expect to face prosecution.

THE GROUND

Glanford Park originally opened with a capacity of 11,190, both of the goal-ends being standing terraces, however, this capacity was later reduced to its current value of 9,088 in 1991.

Scunthorpe United originally played at the Old Showground, which was located towards the centre of the town at the junction of Doncaster Road and Henderson Avenue.

In the wake of the Bradford City disaster of 1985, it was determined that substantial improvements would have to be made to the Old Showground in order for it to meet new regulations, improvements which the club could not afford.

Ultimately it was decided that the best course of action was to relocate to a new out of town site, with the sale of the land occupied by the Old Showground being used to raise much-needed revenue for the club.

The name Glanford Park was derived from its funding by the then Glanford Borough Council before North Lincolnshire became a unitary authority.

Visiting supporters to Glanford Park are usually located in the AMS Stand, which is the South Stand of the ground. Located behind one of the goals, it can hold up to 1,678 supporters. The stand is all-seated.

GETTING THERE

By road...

Leave the M180 at Junction 3 and take the M181 for Scunthorpe. The motorway will reach its natural conclusion and you will come to a roundabout, where you should take the third exit. At the next roundabout take the third exit again (travelling past KFC on your left and McDonalds on your right). Continue forward at the next roundabout through the Glanford Park gates.

By rail…

The station is over two miles away from the stadium, located towards the town centre. The best way to get to the stadium from there is by taxi, but alternatively, you can walk or go to the bus station and take a bus to either Tesco or Bolsover Road.

By bus...

You can get buses from town, visit www.stagecoachbus.com for information.  

CAR PARKING

Car parking at the ground is available in the East Car Park for 600 cars, priced at very reasonable £3 on a first-come, first-served basis. In the surrounding areas, there is limited street parking with police restrictions, while there are parking restrictions in the retail car parks.

ENTERTAINMENT & REFRESHMENTS

The pubs...

At Glanford Park itself is the Iron Bar which admits visiting supporters.

Otherwise near to the ground, there is 'The Old Farmhouse' pub, which also allows in away fans providing though that they are not wearing team colours.

There is another pub near the ground called the Berkeley, which is also popular with away supporters. To find the Sam Smith pub, go past the ground (or park there first) and follow the main road towards Scunthorpe and it is on the left-hand corner of the first roundabout you reach. 

Inside the ground...

The AMS Stand holds an away bar underneath the stand, which can be accessed from both sides of the turnstiles (subject to travelling numbers, access from one side may be in operation). As well as the away bar, the location has a variety of refreshments and snacks available.

Toilets are also located at either corner of the stand.

PROGRAMME

The programme seller will be located on the inside of the ground, next to the turnstile entrance, should you want to purchase an edition of 'The Iron' for £3.
