The Bantams will contest their second Easter fixture in Essex this afternoon, travelling to the JobServe Community Stadium to play Colchester United. 

We have compiled a handy Away Day Guide - packed full of useful information ahead of the 3.00pm contest.


JobServe Community Stadium

United Way





A 10,105-capacity venue, the JobServe Community Stadium has been home to Colchester United since opening in 2008. 

The £14-million project broke ground in July 2007, replacing the U's' previous home, Layer Road. 

The stadium has hosted Elton John, Lionel Richie and Olly Murs concerts, as well as England youth and women internationals. 


Supporters will be able to PAY ON THE DAY at the JobServe Community Stadium this afternoon, with tickets only available from a self-service booth in the club shop. 

Close to 300 City supporters are set to descend on Essex, and will be housed in the North Stand.

Admission prices are as follows: 

Adult: £22


Under-18: £13.50

*A concession comprises those aged 65 and above and those in the Armed Forces who are able to supply valid identification.
