RIP: SIR BOBBY CHARLTON

There will be a minute's silence before kick-off this evening, to remember the late Sir Bobby Charlton CBE. 

England's World Cup winner and second-highest goalscorer passed over the weekend, with both sides also wearing black armbands to honour a legend of the game. 

STADIUM ADDRESS

Stadium Way

Bletchley

Milton Keynes

MK1 1ST

ABOUT THE GROUND

The Dons moved into their £50 million purpose built, all-seater stadium having spent a couple of years at the National Hockey Stadium.

The North, South, and East stands are double tiered, with the West stand holding similar height, but with hospitality and corporate boxes on a separate tier.

City supporters will be housed in the North Upper Stand. 

ABOUT THE OPPOSITION

Now under the management of former Gateshead boss and Newcastle defender Mike Williamson, the Dons parted company with Graham Alexander after picking up 16 points from 14 games.

Relegated from League One last season, the Buckinghamshire outfit boast a number of seasoned Sky Bet League Two outfielders, including former Bantam Jack Payne, and brother of ex-City winger Abo Eisa, Mo.

Williamson will host his first game at Stadium MK against McDonald’s side, after losing away at Accrington last week.

CAR PARKING

There are around 2,000 car parking spaces at the stadium itself, with a cost of £7 per vehicle.

If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, fans can also house their car for free at the Denbigh West Industrial Estate.

However, do not be tempted to park in the adjacent Asda car park, as fans have been fined up to £60 for parking here.

ENTERTAINMENT AND REFRESHMENTS

To eat:

Nearby to the ground, there are KFC and McDonalds outlets, and recently opened outside the North Stand is an Odeon Cinema.

Futhermore, and if you fancy a sit-down meal, TGI Friday’s and Pizza Express are located just outside the stadium in the retail park.

There is food available on concourse which includes of selection of Ginsters pastries, pies, sausage rolls, and burgers.

To drink:

The alcohol selections close to the stadium have become recently limited.

The Red Dot bar, attached to the Hilton Doubletree Hotel, and the Inn on the Lake no longer admit visiting supporters.

If arriving at Bletchley Railway Station nearby, the Park Inn, Postal Club and Brooklands welcome away fans and have Sky and TNT Sports for attendees.

The Postal Club is a five-minute-walk from Bletchley Railway Station, and only a 20-minute walk to Stadium MK. Alongside the live sport, and away atmosphere, there is a free pool table and dart board, which can be accompanied with reasonably-priced drinks. 

GETTING THERE:

By car:

Leave the M1 at junction 15 and take the A508 towards Milton Keynes and keep going until you reach the A5 roundabout.

Take the first exit onto the A5, and turn off at the third junction (signposted A421), take the fourth exit at the roundabout onto the V6 Grafton Street and the ground will appear on the left. 

By train:

The nearest railway station is Fenny Stratford which is just over a mile away from Stadium MK, however this is on the Bletchley to Bedford line, so you would have to get a change.

As you exit the station, turn right and at the top of road turn right onto the main Watling Street - and go straight along this road.

There is also Bletchley Railway Station which is around about two miles away and is around 30 minutes away from the stadium.

PYROTECHNICS AND BEHAVIOUR 

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 at the University of Bradford Stadium last season, following an incident during our home match against Newport County, in a statement. This can be read HERE.

The club would also like to take the opportunity to remind supporters of the zero-tolerance approach towards missile throwing, after an incident in City's home match against Harrogate Town in the Emirates FA Cup last season. 

Bradford City AFC would like to remind supporters that the strongest condemnation is employed towards anti-social behaviour, crowd disorder and misconduct, and illegal activity inside football stadia. 

Our stance on the above will ensure the strongest-possible action continues to be taken against those found guilty of any offence, including the issuing of Football Banning Orders. 

This follows the implementation of the 'Love Football, Protect the Game' initiative reinforced this season, by the EFL, FA and Premier League. For full details, please CLICK HERE
