The Bantams are on the road for the second time this week, this afternoon, this time for a 3.00pm trip to Scunthorpe United. 

We have put together a handy Away Day Guide for the supporters set to travel to Lincolnshire today. 


The Sands Venue Stadium

Glanford Park

Jack Brownsword Way


DN15 8TD


Glanford Park originally opened with a capacity of 11,190, with both of the goal ends being standing terraces. However, this capacity was later reduced to its current total of 9,088 in 1991.

Scunthorpe United originally played at the Old Showground, which was located towards the centre of the town at the junction of Doncaster Road and Henderson Avenue.

The name Glanford Park derived from its funding by the then Glanford Borough Council, before North Lincolnshire became a unitary authority.

Visiting supporters are usually located in the AMS Stand, which is the South Stand of the ground. Located behind one of the goals, it can hold up to 1,678 supporters. The stand is all-seated.


Supporters will be able to PAY ON THE DAY at the Sands Venue Stadium this afternoon. 

Close to 1,700 City supporters are set to descend on Glanford Park, with just over 300 tickets remaining for supporters to secure. 

The Bantams have been allocated a total of 2,008 tickets, which are reserved in the AMS Stand.

Tickets will be available to purchase from 1.30pm, by visiting the North East Corner ticket booth. They WILL NOT be available to purchase on turnstiles, and ONLY CARD OR CONTACTLESS PAYMENT WILL BE ACCEPTED. 

Supporters who purchase a ticket from Scunthorpe United WILL NOT receive 10 loyalty points, while those who have already secured tickets can collect them from the North East Corner ticket booth ahead of kick-off.

Admission prices are as follows: 

Adult: £26

Seniors (65+) / Under-21 / Full-Time Student*£18

Under-18: £9

Under-12: FREE^

*with valid NUS card.

By road...

Leave the M180 at Junction 3 and take the M181 for Scunthorpe. The motorway will reach its natural conclusion and you will come to a roundabout, where you should take the third exit.

At the next roundabout take the third exit again (travelling past KFC on your left and McDonald's on your right). Continue forward at the next roundabout through the Glanford Park gates.

By rail…

The station is over two miles away from the stadium, located towards the town centre. The best way to get to the stadium from there is by taxi, but alternatively, you can walk or go to the bus station and take a bus to either Tesco or Bolsover Road.

By bus...

You can get buses from town. Visit for information.  


Car parking at the ground is available in the East Car Park for 600 cars, priced at a very reasonable £4 if booked in advance and £5 card payment on arrival if there are spaces available.

In the surrounding areas, there is limited street parking with police restrictions, while there are parking restrictions in the retail car parks.

Disabled parking is available for blue badge holders free of charge, but cannot be booked in advance and is therefore on a first-come, first-served basis.


The pubs...

At Glanford Park itself is the Iron Bar which admits visiting supporters.

Otherwise, near to the ground, there is The Old Farmhouse pub, which also allows in away fans provided that they are not wearing team colours.

Inside the ground...

The Sands Venue Stadium is cashless, meaning all payment must be on card on matchday.

The AMS Stand holds an away bar underneath the stand, which can be accessed from both sides of the turnstiles (subject to travelling numbers, access from one side may be in operation).

As well as the away bar, the location has a variety of refreshments and snacks available.
