For the third season in a row, Bradford City are aiming to offer the most affordable season tickets in the EFL and this time hope to reach the 20,000 mark.
With the club honouring their pledge to keep football accessible to all, this ambitious figure would reinforce the club as one of the best supported in the country.
And there is an exciting twist to this year’s campaign for Bantams fans, as the prices will remain the same irrespective of which league the club are playing in next season! The message therefore from the club to its existing fans is to go and recruit new season ticket holders.
Chief Operating Officer James Mason said: "Freezing the prices is a huge statement to the rest of the football world that the game should be affordable for all.
"Despite the temptation to charge higher prices in higher leagues, we believe in growing our fan base by inspiring families to watch together. I’m proud to be a Bradfordian working for a club that really values its supporters.
"As fans we want to be proud of the club we support. We rightly want the plaudits of having a big home and away following so our message is simple - We’ll keep football affordable if you the fans can help inspire others to come and join us.
"As a club we’re at our best when we come together so please play your part. Tell your neighbours, your friends, your colleagues at work, tell everyone about our fantastic offer and let’s see if we can hit 20,000. That really would be something to be proud of!"
The early bird campaign will run from 1st March until 29th April 2017.
Until then, all current season ticket holders can rest assured their existing seat will remain reserved. After that date, however, the seat will become available for anyone to buy or move to if they’ve already purchased a season ticket and want to swap the seat they were allocated.
As the deadline for the lower prices is before this season ends, joint-owner Edin Rahic is asking fans to back the club’s ideology, "When Stefan and I researched clubs to invest in, Bradford City stood alone as a club that had so much history but importantly potential.
"We observed how the fans reacted to the low season ticket prices and how they followed the club along their two recent cup runs.
"We hope this season we’ve shown supporters how exciting the future will be at the club. We’ve already invested significantly on players for the future.
"We have also honoured our pledge to keep football affordable and whilst we know selling 20,000 is a big number, we want fans to play their part and fill the stadium, creating that amazing atmosphere on match days."
City’s fellow joint-owner Stefan Rupp believes fans who buy early can only win.
He stated: "By buying early it will help us to plan our budgets accordingly and whilst in some ways it’s a gamble, the only winners are the fans and the club.
"We’re very proud to be involved with this great club and we’re all working hard to achieve our short-term, mid-term and long-term goals.
"Whenever we’ve had visitors over from Germany to watch this season, they’ve all been impressed with the connection between the club and its fans.
"Our aim is to continue this and in time bring success on the pitch also."
A full list of 2017/2018 season tickets can be found below:
- Season ticket prizes are frozen from last season from 1st March to 3rd April.

The popular ‘Flexi ’ option will remain meaning fans can still reserve their seat without buying a full season ticket. HOWEVER, the price will increase from £50.00 to £70.00 to cover additional administrational costs. Fans choosing this option will no longer receive a card but will need to purchase a match ticket prior to games either online or at the ticket office. There will be no cash turnstiles next season for league games.

Bradford City FC introduced the FlexiCard system in 2012/13 and its success has resulted in it staying in force for the past four seasons. In short, the FlexiCard enables a supporter to pay £70.00 to reserve a seat at the Northern Commercials Stadium with that same supporter then paying only reduced prices* for match day tickets in advance or on the day of the game. Feedback shows us that supporters are delighted with the FlexiCard concept; please read the details below carefully and help us to keep the scheme in operation.
This statement is intended to help supporters to get the best use out of the FlexiCard system. Supporters are asked to follow these straightforward guidelines to help them get into the stadium easily and in time for the kick-off of each game.
Use your allocated seat - we would remind you that you need to use the seat allocated on the rear of your FlexiCard. Using other seats can lead to disruption of other spectators and with the large crowds anticipated in League One going directly to your own seat will help all concerned.
Use the correct turnstiles - if you are paying cash at the turnstiles with your FlexiCard for games, please note that there will be a limited number of turnstiles specifically allocated to cash-paying FlexiCard(s) holders.
For The Kop, you will be able to use Turnstiles N2 and N9 and N10 (N2 is behind The Kop close to the ticket office while N9 and N10 are on Midland Road)
For the Northern Commercials Stand, you will be able to use Turnstiles E2 and E3 on Midland Road.
For the Main Stand, you will be able to use Turnstiles W4 and W11 in the Directors’ car park (one turnstile either side of the glass doors leading to banqueting).
Pre-book your tickets - we would recommend strongly that whenever possible you obtain your ticket for the game in advance. While you can’t book your FlexiCard match tickets online, you can book and pay for them in person at the ticket office or over the telephone (0871 978 8000 - please note calls to this line are charged at 10p per minute plus network extras). Once you have your ticket - which will be a different design to all other match day tickets - you will be able to use any of the other “pre-paid ticket” turnstiles:
- For The Kop please use turnstiles N3-N8 (behind The Kop) or turnstiles N11-N14 (on Midland Road)
- For the Northern Commercials Stand please use turnstiles E4-E10
- For the Main Stand please use turnstiles W5-W10 or W12-W18
Please note that the turnstiles in use may vary from time-to-time depending upon pre-match sales.
Turnstile security - in addition to the FlexiCard tickets being totally different to the regular match day tickets, we will be increasing the levels of security at the turnstiles to ensure the cards are not abused as happened in some instances in previous seasons.
Just one last point - if would be helpful if all supporters could get to the stadium just 10-15 minutes earlier - it eases congestion outside and ensures that all supporters get into their seats in time for kick-off for every game in what promises to be another exciting season.
Thanks again for getting behind the team!
