City are set to return to Sky Bet League Two action, this afternoon, hosting Exeter City (3.00pm). 

We have compiled a handy Matchday Guide - packed full of helpful information ahead of the fixture.

Firstly, we would like to extend a warm welcome to this afternoon's Big Match Sponsor, Schofield Sweeney, and Matchball Sponsor, the Cedar Court Hotel!


The club would like to remind supporters the possession or use of pyrotechnics inside a football ground is strictly prohibited.

Those found to be carrying or using pyrotechnics will face a long-term ban.

We would like to remind supporters it is a criminal offence to enter the pitch at any time.

Anyone who does so without permission can expect to face prosecution.


Today's encounter will mark the Bantams' official support of Stonewall's Rainbow Laces campaign - promoting inclusivity of LGBTQ+ participants in sport and football. 

Members of Gary Bowyer's playing staff will don rainbow showlaces in their football boots, as well as rainbow corner flags, a pennant and captain's armband being on show. 


This afternoon’s match will be held in aid of The Salvation Army.

Founded in East London in 1865, The Salvation Army is a Protestant Christian church and international charitable organisation.

Bucket collectors on behalf of the fund can be found in around the Utilita Energy Stadium, today, and supporters are asked to help out - in whichever way possible.

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 today's clash, 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.


Newport enjoyed a strong start to the campaign but - on the back of three consecutive league defeats - currently sit 11th in Sky Bet League Two. 

The Exiles finished 7th, last season, losing in the play-off semi-final to Tranmere Rovers. 


Be sure to grab a copy of Issue 12 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. 

Harry Pritchard - who also features in 'The Big Interview' - is this week's cover star, which also gives a nod to this afternoon's backing of Stonewall's Rainbow Laces campaign! 

Other features include 'From The Top' with interim chief executive Julian Rhodes, 'From The Dugout' with manager Gary Bowyer and the popular 'Bantams Board'. 

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

And 'Junior Bantams Reporter', James Crickmore, offers his take on the Bantams' last outing, at home to Exeter City.  


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!


Supporters are in for a dry West Yorkshire afternoon, with temperatures set to linger around 9°C.
