The Bantams are on their travels again this evening, facing a trip to Walsall in Sky Bet League Two.

It is the club’s second away trip in four days and the midweek clash will be watched by over 400 travelling City supporters.

We have compiled a handy Away Day Guide - packed full of useful information ahead of the 7.45pm contest!


Banks's Stadium

Bescot Crescent


West Midlands

WS1 4SA.


The Banks's Stadium has been home to Walsall since opening in August 1990.

An 11,300-seater, £4.5million project, the ground was built on the back of Walsall's takeover by Terry Ramsden in 1986.

Walsall moved to the Banks’s Stadium, formerly known as Bescot, from Fellows Park after a 94-year stay.


Supporters will be able to gain admission from the Banks's Stadium this evening, for an extra £2, by heading to window No.5 of the Walsall ticket office.

Any tickets also uncollected at this point will be available to be picked up from Walsall ahead of kick-off. 

Tickets are however still available to secure at the pre-matchday rate up until 12.00PM TODAY, via the club's official ticketing website, the Valley Parade Box Office or by calling 01274 770012.
