Bradford City AFC would like to remind supporters it is a criminal offence to enter the pitch at any time, ahead of Monday’s game against Leyton Orient.

After the match, which is the Bantams’ final outing of the regular season, the first team players and staff would like to show their thanks for your fantastic support over the course of the campaign, with a lap of appreciation at full-time.

Due to safety measures, however, this will only be able to happen should there be no pitch incursions whatsoever.

City are currently the subject of four ongoing FA investigations as a result of crowd disorder, including missile throwing, pyrotechnic use and pitch encroachment.

Anyone found to be entering the field of play at any point, without permission, can expect to face suspensions and police action. One supporter who encroached earlier this season has since been convicted and, through the courts, received a three-year Football Banning Order.

Please stay off the pitch on Monday and show your incredible support from the stands, to enable the players and staff to thank you for your fantastic backing all season long, with a lap of appreciation after full-time.
