MATCHDAY GUIDE: CITY v EXETER

2 November 2019

City are set to return to Sky Bet League Two action, this afternoon, hosting Exeter City (3.00pm). 

We have compiled a handy Matchday Guide - packed full of helpful information ahead of the fixture.

Firstly, we would like to extend a warm welcome to this afternoon's Big Match Sponsor, Friends of Bradford City, and Matchball Sponsor, The Shakespeare Hotel! 

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.

REMEMBRANCE

Supporters, staff and players will come together - before kick-off - to participate in a minute's silence to mark Armistice Day and remember the fallen. 

The Bantams captain will lay a wreath in the centre circle on behalf of the club, with City's shirts also carrying poppies.

SAMARITANS 

This afternoon's fixture will be held in aid of Samaritans. 

Bucket collectors for the charity can be found in and around the Utilita Energy Stadium today, with supporters urged to support in any way possible.

The Bantams Bar - located within The Kop at the Utilita Energy Stadium - will be open after full-time for supporters wishing to unwind after the match. 

WIN WITH ‘SHIRT OFF MY BACK’

Our popular matchday competition will be back in place for today's clash, giving supporters the opportunity to walk away with a top prize of either the man of the match-worn shirt or £100 in cash!

Not only will you win this unique prize (second prize £100 in cash) but you will also meet the man of the match after the game who will sign the shirt and present it to you.

Tickets for this competition can be bought for just £1 from sellers located inside and around the outside of the ground. The winner will be announced at half time.

OUR OPPONENTS

Exeter have enjoyed a strong start to the campaign, sitting just one point off the top of the Sky Bet League Two table - in second place. 

The Grecians finished ninth in the fourth tier - last season - having finished inside the Sky Bet League Two play-off positions in both of the previous two terms, prior. 

THE PARADER

Be sure to grab a copy of Issue 10 of The Parader this afternoon, on sale for just £3 around the Utilita Energy Stadium. 

The front cover of the Bantams' official matchday programme features the latest in a collection of illustrations by Bradford artist and City fan Rob Dunn. 

Connor Wood - who also features in 'The Big Interview' - is this week's cover star. 

Other features include 'From The Top' with chairman Stefan Rupp, 'From The Dugout' with manager Gary Bowyer and the popular 'Bantams Board'. 

Meanwhile, there are returning columns from Aaron Bower, Jason McKeown, Mick Lamb, John Dewhirst, David Markham, and Mike Harrison.

And 'Junior Bantams Reporter', James Crickmore, offers his take on the Bantams' last outing, at home to Port Vale 

THE CITY SHOP

The City Shop will be open from 10.00am until 3.00pm today to allow supporters another opportunity to get their hands on the Bantams’ 2019/20 home, away and third kits.

The new strips will be on sale along with City’s all-new training range!

WEATHER 

Supporters are in for another rainy West Yorkshire afternoon, with temperatures set to linger around 9°C.
