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.


Crawley Town currently sit ninth in the Sky Bet League Two table, having triumphed 2-1 over Colchester United, last Saturday. 

The Red Devils will be looking to build on a 19th-place finish in the fourth tier, last season. 


Be sure to grab a copy of Issue Eight 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. 

Hope Akpan - who also features in 'The Big Interview' - is this week's cover star. 

The midfielder discusses his recent goalscoring run in the side, looks back on his time at this afternoon's opponents and looks forward to welcoming his first child into the world. 

'Junior Bantams Reporter' James Crickmore returns for his second outing - with a report on City's 2-1 victory over Swindon Town. 

Other features include 'From The Top' with chairman Stefan Rupp, '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. 


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 strips will be on sale along with City’s all-new training range, gifts and other official club merchandise.
