MATCHDAY GUIDE: CITY v PLYMOUTH

29 February 2020

City return to Sky Bet League Two action at the Utilita Energy Stadium against Plymouth Argyle this afternoon. 

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, Electric Center and Matchball Sponsor, Packetts!

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.

AWARE

This afternoon’s match is dedicated to the Airedale and Wharfedale Autism Resource (AWARE).

An official club charity partner for the 2019/20 season, AWARE is a parent-run group supporting families with children and young adults on the autistic spectrum (formal diagnosis not required).

They cover the Airedale, Wharfedale, Bradford and Craven areas and beyond.

Their headquarters can be found at 2 Royd House Way, Long Lee, Keighley, BD21 4TY.

Bucket collectors can be found around the Utilita Energy Stadium today and supporters are urged, where possible, to donate.

LEVEL PLAYING FIELD

Today's game is the Bantams' dedicated Level Playing Field fixture, designated to supporting the work of the charity.

OUR OPPONENTS

Plymouth are unbeaten in four matches and currently sit fourth in the Sky Bet League Two table - four points off top spot.
