Supporters are advised suite upgrade access during the 2020/21 season is set to be extremely limited as a result of the ongoing impact of COVID-19.
At the point of supporters being allowed back inside sporting venues, the club intends to re-open all banqueting suites at the Utilita Energy Stadium on matchdays.
‘City For All’ season tickets are currently available to renew ahead of the 2020/21 campaign, with those who held a suite-upgrade pass last season - in either the Bantams Bar, McCall Suite, Hendrie Suite or 2013 Suite - able to renew similar packages.
Supporters are advised, however, that the club is unable to guarantee suite upgrades, even to those who wish to take up the option to renew.
Suite upgrades are being sold on a first-come, first-served basis, with the capacity of all suites likely to be limited to a combined figure of 500 per matchday.
The club wishes to strongly advise that, should this capacity become approached by renewing season-ticket holders, the option to upgrade may be removed - and suite upgrades taken off sale.
Therefore, we advise all supporters wishing to renew a suite upgrade to do so as soon as possible, in order to avoid disappointment.
Due to demand and increasing costs incurred to operate the Bantams Bar, McCall Suite, Hendrie Suite and 2013 Suite, under strict COVID-19 regulations and restrictions, admission into these areas is priced at £125 (adults) and £67.50 (under-16s).
If you, having had a suite upgrade during the 2019/20 season, choose not - or prove unable - to renew a suite upgrade ahead of the 2020/21 campaign, you will be given the option to renew your original seat in the Utilita Energy Stadium - ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
Meanwhile, ‘City For All’ 2020/21 season-ticket prices have been FROZEN ahead of the coming campaign and will remain on sale until 5.00pm on Sunday September 6, priced at £150 (Adults, Seniors, Students), £100 (Under-16s) and £25 (Under-11s).
City’s director of communications and commercial, Ryan Sparks, said: “Capacities across the stadium will be hugely affected as the pandemic continues to impact on sport across the globe.
“It is no different for us here at Bradford City and, unfortunately, we are unable to provide the usual level of access to our suites as a direct result.
“We have received feedback from supporters expressing disappointment regarding the pricing structure of our suite-upgrade offering, which has been held from the previously-launched ‘City For All’ campaign.
“In order for these areas to be viable, given the lower capacity and ever-increasing COVID-19-related costs, a decision has been made to price tickets for these areas at this level.
“While we accept the suites will be used less regularly than usual by supporters coming to either a ‘Claret’ or ‘Amber’ fixture, value for money is something we take a great deal of pride in offering and, given the huge demand for these areas, we feel it is still being provided.
“Our current season-ticket pricing structure - which has been frozen - remains one of the most affordable packages in professional, English football.
“Given the streaming offering which we have helped bring to the table, we fully believe our supporters are being given as much of an opportunity as possible to enjoy live football in these circumstances.”
