25 April 2014

The football club would like to confirm to supporters that there will be a minute's silence held ahead of Saturday's (26 April 2014) final Sky Bet League 1 home match of the season with Crawley Town.

In keeping with tradition, the minute's silence will allow those within the Coral Windows Stadium to pay their respects to the 56 people who sadly lost their lives in the 1985 Valley Parade fire disaster.

Although the actual anniversary of the fire disaster isn't for another two weeks or so, the club have traditionally used the final home fixture of the season as an opportunity to honour the lives of the fifty-four Bradford City supporters and two Lincoln City supporters who tragically passed away on Saturday 11 May 1985.

The minute of silence will also give fans the chance to remember those who we have lost over the last twelve months.

Turnstiles around the ground will close for the minute's silence, so fans are requested to please arrive as early as possible on Saturday so they can be part of the respectful marking of the disaster that took place 29 years ago.

The turnstiles will re-open after the minute's silence has ended.

The club would like to politely remind fans to please turn off their mobile phones during the minute's silence this Saturday.
