VISITING THE UTILITA ENERGY STADIUM

Built in 1886, the Utilita Energy Stadium was originally the home of Manningham Rugby Football Club.

In 1903, the code was changed from rugby football to association football and the ground became home to Bradford City.

The stadium is an all-seater venue and has a maximum capacity of 24,840.

Five stands make up the Utilita Energy Stadium: the JCT600 (West) Stand, The Mamma Mia (East) Stand, The Kop (North), the TL Dallas (South) Stand and The Family (North West Corner) Stand.

Away fans are housed in blocks F and G of The Mamma Mia Stand. Subject to away ticket demand, the TL Dallas Stand will also be open to trvelling supporters.
