Book Tickets Online


Bradford City was founded in 1903, and won the FA Cup just 8 years later! They enjoyed two seasons in the Premiership at the turn of the millennium.

Bradford City Home kit is the distinctive claret and amber jerseys. Bradford City are nicknamed The Bantams.

The club's University of Bradford Stadium, still known to many fans as the traditional 'Valley Parade', holds over 25,000 and has been completely redeveloped in recent times with some truly impressive stands. The stadium has a place in football history, having witnessed the best and the worst of times, from promotion celebrations to the tragic events of the Bradford fire in 1985, which have been woven into the legend and the psyche of the club, and all who follow it.

Bike racks are available at the University of Bradford Stadium for those wishing to cycle to Valley Parade. These are located in the directors' car park, outside the front of The Morrisons Family Stand, and were kindly donated by The City Gent Fanzine. 

By Foot:

We are approximately a 15-minute walk away from the nearest train station (Bradford Forster Square). However supporters can arrive on foot to Valley Parade, with the best routes available by planning your journey ahead. 

Supporters are advised that The TL Dallas Stand, when open, backs onto Holywell Ash Lane - a steep inclined hill. Wheelchair access for The TL Dallas Stand is through the SB Gate on Holywell Ash Lane, therefore it is recommended supporters approach this from South Parade and walk down the hill, and avoid walking up the hill from Midland Road.

The airport is located just under eight miles from Valley Parade, and an approximate 25-minute drive. It is a hub for a number of well-known airlines, such as, Ryanair, TUI Airways and more. 

Bradford City encourages supporters to travel together or via public transport/on foot to start to reduce the carbon footprint and help us strive towards being a greener club.
