Stuart McCall's Bantams play their first away fixture of the new Sky Bet League One season this Saturday (12 August 2017) at Gillingham.

Here is our guide to the MEMS Priestfield Stadium.

Away Section(s)
Away fans are mainly housed on one side of the Brian Moore Stand which is a temporary uncovered structure that has been situated on top of an existing terrace. This stand is named in memory of the legendary commentator and lifelong Gillingham fan, Brian Moore. City supporters on Saturday will also be situated in a section (nearest to the Brian Moore Stand) of the Gordon Road Stand. This particular part of the ground is undercover and located down one side of the pitch (near to one of the corner flags).
The nearest main retail park to the MEMS Priestfield Stadium is Hempstead Valley Shopping Centre. This is approximately 10-15 minutes away from the ground via car. The venue has a number of food outlets, including Subway, Frankie & Benny's and Nandos.
The Fleur De Lis pub on Gillingham Road, which is around a ten minute walk away from the stadium, has been designated by the local Police as an away fans pub.
To find this pub, then with away entrance behind you, walk down to the bottom of the street. Turn left and on reaching a roundabout turn right onto Gillingham Road. The pub is up on the right. 
Otherwise, the ground is walkable from the town centre, where there are a fair few pubs to be found.
Post Code for SAT NAV
ME7 4DD (Redfern Avenue, Gillingham)
Exit A2 at junction 1 (M2) onto the A289. Follow signs for Medway Tunnel. After about three miles take the second exit off the roundabout, again following signs towards Medway Tunnel. At the next roundabout take the first exit. At the next roundabout take the first exit into the Tunnel. On exit follow the A289 over two sets of traffic lights before coming to the Strand roundabout. Take the third exit onto Church Street. Drive up the hill and continue over the level crossing. Take the second left after the crossing and follow Linden Drive to the end. Turn right into Redfern Avenue, where you will see the MEMS Priestfield Stadium on your right.
Car Parking
There is a residents only parking scheme in operation around Priestfield Stadium, so if you want to street park, this will mean driving a bit further away to do so.
There is a pay and display car park on Railway Street near Gillingham station, which is less than 10 minutes walk from the ground. 
Parking is also available at the Our Lady Of Gillingham Catholic Church on Ingram Street (ME7 1YL). Again, it is only a ten minute walk from the church to Priestfield.
