If IH (when) gets us fring on all cylinders next season, our away following will probably be greater, than most grounds can accommodate, interesting times ahead.

Get it right on the pitch Mr Holloway, you not seen anything yet, as to the away following.

Might drive some season ticket revenue which will no doubt be welcome.

Quoted from Poojah


I’m not sure that’s the case actually. Liverpool had over 4,000 there for a game in pre-season. That was a fundraiser for Stephen Darby, the ex-Liverpool and Bradford player who has been diagnosed with motor neurone disease however, and will have been seen by police as a different prospect to the same number of Town fans travelling for a league game.

I don’t see that stance as fair, and personally I think our supposed reputation for disorder is massively overstated, but that’s just the way things seem to be.



For cup games and pre-season friendlies, we generally allocate the Midland Road Stand (where the TV gantry sits) of which has a capacity of 4,500. The stand is made up on seven relatively even blocks, and you have two of them. Currently, half a block is used as segregation, with Bradford City season ticket holders currently occupying the other half.

Generally, the allocation is about 2,700, but there have been some instances where the 300 or so fans who occupy the block t’other end of segregation are relocated. For example, Sunderland brought 2,900 here last season.

For us to allocate more, it would mean relocating upwards of 2,300 ST holders from the same stand. Although this has been done before, it wouldn’t go down too well with the fans this season.

As mentioned, there is a very small possibility for you to be allocated another half-a-block, depending on a number of probabilities.

Hopefully our performances will pick up abit leading up to this fixture. We have the best home form in the league, but are very poor away from home - winning only three times on the road.

Attendance could be as high as 19,000-20,000 with a decent atmosphere to boot.

Thanks for the info & insight, it’s nice to have level headed, genuine input on here from the opposition!

We have the worst home form in the league, so going on this seasons results being hugely unpredictable, we should win 8-0! 🤣



In Ollie we trust 🐟

This has ballsed me up somewhat, I said I'd drive a minibus but now with the one for one season ticket, then part season ticket, the exile, then trust etc etc etc it means the season ticket holders amongst us can get sorted big the people needed to pad the bus out are unsure whether they'll be able to get sorted so I've been told to put on hold hiring the bus.

Now if and when we do get sorted the bus needed might be gone.

Was expecting 4000 and it wouldn't be sn issue hence the grand plan, but I understand the it position if it means uprooting season ticket holders.

Can't complain about the priority system, just my grand plan gone to pot that's all.

I miss a ton of matches due to the nature of my work  and the long hours involved so it's frustrating as a former diehard and season ticket holder who doesn't buy one now because work make it unfeasible to be shoehorned out at times but it is what it is.

Might even have to buy one or at least one of the part options even if I take a financial loss just to help ensure I got a better chance for appetising away games etc.

Did I read there's a shift workers deal or as something now? Might have to look into as can see plenty of frustrating moments if Ollie's bandwagon sets of at full steam!

To be fair 2700 should be enough for a mid table team a couple of hours away

I'm not so sure Grimps, we took 4000 to Donny without the Ollie Effect! Leyton Orient sold out nearly 2k down in London...

Especially if we continue getting positive results and/or performances.

Back to the tickets although it's hit me this time I think it's much fairer now with the one-for-one than before when season ticket holders could suck up vast swathes of extra tickets for their friends.

I was a beneficiary of this recently but the mass clamber for leftovers had me feeling it unfair as more loyal supporters could be missing out so fair weather friends of ST holders could have the privilege.
