The Bantams have made the long trip to Exeter City for their first game of the 2021/22 Sky Bet League Two season. 

We have put together a handy Away Day Guide with some important information ahead of the game - which kicks off at 3.00pm this afternoon in Devonshire. 


St James Park

Stadium Way





St James Park has been home to the Grecians for their entire history as a football club since 1904. 

The ground is made up of four stands in total which go by the names of the Cowshed, the Cliff Bastin Stand, the old Grandstand (family stand) and St James Road Terrace (for visiting supporters). 

After going through a few refurbishments over the years, the stadium now holds an overall capacity of 8,541. 


City supporters are able to purchase their tickets from the Away Ticket booth right up until kick-off on the day. 

Over 700 tickets have already been snapped up in advance of matchday, with a healthy away following set to cheer on Derek Adams' Bantams in Devonshire. 

The travelling spectators will be located in the St James Road Terrace stand with 376 seated and 780 standing tickets allocated.
