AWAY DAY GUIDE | Bradford City vs Wrexham AFC

20 October 2023

Tomorrow, we return to the road as we travel to the University of Bradford Stadium for the first time since 2007 as we take on Bradford City in Sky Bet League Two.

It’s the second time we have faced the Bantams this season, after a penalty shoutout defeat in the Carabao Cup.

After last weekend’s victory to Salford City, Phil Parkinson’s side sit three points off the top of the table.

Due to the weather conditions, a limited rail service may be in operation. Please check your travel arrangements before departing for tomorrow's game.

Before you travel for tomorrow’s game, check out all the information you need.

CAR PARKING

The postcode for the stadium is BD8 7DY

Both Midland Road and Queens Road are used by supporters for street parking.

On their first-time fans guide it also says: Parking on Midland Road is permitted for disabled blue-badge holders though, if parking in the vicinity of the stadium, be wary of various charges.

PLEASE NOTE: An active road closure is in place on Midland Road for every home matchday, between Holywell Ash Lane and Thorncliffe Road. If parking in the disabled bays on Midland Road, supporters should enter from the Queens Roadside, and not Hamm Strasse. 

OFFICIAL CLUB TRAVEL

Please note, the buses will depart at 10:30am, and there will be no provisions for those who arrive late.

Supporters must make note of their designated coach on the ticket and only board the coach they’ve been allocated to.

All under-14s must be accompanied on official supporter travel, and alcohol is strictly prohibited by law.

 

SUPPORTER CONDUCT

Wrexham AFC wishes to remind supporters of the potential safety implications and consequences that may occur as a result of pitch incursions and other illegal and unacceptable behaviour.

As previously communicated, supporters who encroach on the pitch risk facing a Football Banning Order as well as a criminal conviction, while the Club itself could also face a fine for these actions.

There may also be other implications for the Club, including restrictions on future away ticket allocations. This is due to potential safety measures the home Club are required to put in place which impacts on the availability of seating.

The Club understands the emotion and passion that comes with attending the match as a fan but must reiterate that the safety of players, managers and supporters on both sides remains our priority.

The vast majority of fans have – and continue to – support the Club in an appropriate manner and are a credit to Wrexham AFC, but we will seek the strongest possible punishment for those who enter the field of play or engage in any other unacceptable behaviour.

As in line with the FA initiative, Wrexham AFC fully support the ‘Love Football Protect the Game’ program.

Wrexham AFC support the new measures that have been implemented to both improve participant and fan behaviour across the board.

Wrexham AFC operates a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination of any kind, and supporters are encouraged to come forward and report any incidents it to the nearest steward, the Club, or Kick it Out.
