The Bantams Bar - located within The Kop at the Utilita Energy Stadium - will be open after full-time for supporters wishing to unwind after the match. 


Our popular matchday competition will be back in place for the opening match, giving supporters the opportunity to walk away with a top prize of either the man of the match-worn shirt or £100 in cash!

Not only will you win this unique prize (second prize £100 in cash) but you will also meet the man of the match after the game who will sign the shirt and present it to you.

Tickets for this competition can be bought for just £1 from sellers located inside and around the outside of the ground. The winner will be announced at half time.


Forest Green Rovers currently sit 8th in Sky Bet League Two, after only loosing their match against Port Vale on Tuesday night.  


Be sure to grab a copy of The Parader this afternoon, on sale for just £3 around the Utilita Energy Stadium. 

The front cover of the Bantams' official matchday programme features the latest in a collection of illustrations by Bradford artist and City fan Rob Dunn. 

Ben Richards-Everton - who also features in 'The Big Interview' - is this week's cover star. He tells The Parader of how Bradford City compares to his previous clubs, and speaks of Forest Green Rovers efforts of becoming a vegan club - something he has practiced in the off-season.

Other features include 'From The Top' with chairman of the club - Stefan Rupp -  and the popular 'Bantams Board'. 

Meanwhile, there are returning columns from Aaron Bower, Jason McKeown, Mick Lamb, John Dewhirst, David Markham, Katie Whyatt and Mike Harrison. 


The City Shop will be open from 10.00am until 3.00pm today to allow supporters another opportunity to get their hands on the Bantams’ 2019/20 home, away and third kits.

The new strips will be on sale along with City’s all-new training range!


Conditions are expected to remain dry this afternoon with sunny intervals, a gentle breeze and highs of 25°C.
