PYROTECHNICS & BEHAVIOUR

The club would like to remind supporters the possession or use of pyrotechnics inside a football ground 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 enter the pitch at any time.

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

OUR OPPONENTS

Preston North End visit West Yorkshire following a 14th place in last season’s Sky Bet Championship.

Alex Neil’s men have entered their fifth consecutive season in the second tier, having won promotion from Sky Bet League One in 2015.

THE PARADER

Be sure to grab a special ‘History Makers’ copy of The Parader this evening, on sale around the Utilita Energy Stadium for just £2!

Tonight’s issue revisits the Bantams’ unforgettable 2013 Carabao Cup run, with an exclusive column and centre-spread poster packed with memorable images from the competition.

The front cover of the official matchday programme will feature an illustration of the cup, courtesy of artist and City supporter Rob Dunn.

Other features include a news round-up, a brief report of Saturday’s draw at Grimsby Town and a guide to tonight’s opposition.

THE CITY SHOP

The City Shop will be open until 8.00pm this evening, allowing supporters to get their hands on the Bantams’ all-new 2019/20 third strip.

The 'Vibrant Orange' number will be on sale alongside the fresh-look home and away strips - in addition to City's official training range!
