Bradford City AFC will now face La Liga side Getafe in a friendly during the club’s Spanish pre-season tour, next Friday July 14 (7.00pm local time).
This comes after City’s original opponents, CD Eldense, informed the Bantams on Monday they would be unable to fulfil the fixture, in line with La Liga ruling concerning player welfare, having last played a competitive match less than two weeks ago.
Mark Hughes’ men will now take on the Spanish top-flight outfit at the Oliva Nova Sports Center on Friday July 14 (the same date as the original fixture), with action to get underway from 7.00pm local time.
Upon receiving notice from CD Eldense, the club and our official overseas travel partner, Kadima Sports, moved swiftly to confirm a new opponent, and would like to take this opportunity to thank Getafe and those involved in helping secure a venue for the fixture for their co-operation.
The Bantams will follow the exact same schedule for their trip, flying the day after this Saturday’s trip to Bury and training at the Pinatar Arena throughout the week, before flying home the day after the Getafe fixture.
Supporters’ transfers, as booked through Kadima Sports, will be organised in the exact same way from the specified pick-up points - before and after the fixture - with full confirmation and timings below.
In addition, due to demand, transfers from a third pick-up point for supporters already based in Alicante will be provided, in addition to those at Torrevieja and Benidorm. Supporters who wish to take advantage of the Alicante collection/drop-off point are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Kadima Sports via WhatsApp (+34603686305) to register.
New tickets for the game against Getafe are now being issued via email to supporters who have secured their place and returned their travel form to email@example.com.
