The Bantams will make their penultimate away trip of the regular season to Northampton Town this afternoon, as they look for a return to winning ways at Sixfields Stadium.

Mark Hughes’ men travel to Northamptonshire, with action set to get underway from 3.00pm.

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


Tickets for this afternoon's clash are entirely SOLD OUT. 

A total of 960 City supporters will make the trip, packing out the the South Stand. 

Admission will not be available on turnstiles in Northampton, nor from the ticket office on the day of the game. 

Any supporters, however, who have secured their tickets online and not been able to collect them from the University of Bradford Stadium, will be able to do so from Sixfields.

Sixfields Stadium

Edgar Mobbs Way




Like several stadiums in Sky Bet League Two, Sixfields Stadium - opened in 1994 - is more of a sports venue, rather than solely a football ground, as it also neighbours an athletics area.

Northampton moved to Sixfields from the County Ground at the beginning of the 1993/94 season, and it houses 7,700 spectators.

The all-seater stadium is on the outskirts of the town, and was temporarily shared with Coventry City in 2014, before their return to the Ricoh Arena in 2015.


Sixfields has a large car park, which is popular amongst visiting supporters, but it is advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment. 

However, there are plenty of places, and it costs £4 to park here.

It also costs £4 to park at the Duston Mill Matchday Car Park which is just over a five-minute walk from the stadium.


To drink:

There is a Beefeater restaurant named the Turnpike, on the west side of Northampton, which is located off the M1.

The Malt Shovel Tavern is located in Northampton’s famous medieval part of town and serves plenty of real ales.

To eat:

There are limited options in terms of eating outlets within close proximity of Sixfields, but the stadium itself is housed by the side of a leisure park, so there are a few options.

In the Sixfields Leisure Park, there is a TGI Friday’s which is authentic American restaurant and a Tenpin Bowling Alley, which serves a large selection of drinks as well as snack food.


By car:

Leave the M1 at Junction 16 and take the A45 towards Northampton. Continue straight on and the ground will appear on your right.

We have been advised by Northampton Town that the roads leading to the stadium will be busier than usual. This is because of Northampton Saints Rugby Club's fixture at 2.00pm, which is half a mile from Sixfields, so travelling supporters may wish to allow for a longer travel time. 

By train:

Northampton Railway Station is over two miles from the stadium.

There are a number of buses that takes you straight to the ground, which leave just outside the train station, such as the D1, D2 and D3.

For those who wish to walk, exit the station and take a right on to Black Lion Hill.

Continue until you reach the Thomas Beckett pub and turn left into St James’ Mill Road. Follow that road until you turn right onto Harvey Reeves Road.

Follow that all the way until you reach the stadium, where the road becomes on Edgar Mobbs Way, and that stadium will be on your right.


The club would like to remind supporters the possession or use of pyrotechnics inside a football ground is strictly prohibited.

Those found to be carrying or using pyrotechnics will face a long-term ban.

We would like to remind supporters it is a criminal offence to enter the pitch at any time. Anyone who does so without permission can expect to face prosecution.

The club outlined its stance on pyrotechnics following an incident during this season's trip to Mansfield Town, in a statement. This can be read HERE

Supporters are also reminded to remain courteous when inside the stadium, with regards to foul and abusive language. If you do hear anything offensive while inside the stadium, please report it to your nearest steward.


City fans should prepare for light rain showers and occasional winds in Northampton today. Despite the rain, it is expected to be fairly warm - with highs of 14° forecast.
