By car: 

Follow the signs on the M180 and continue as it becomes the A180. This road will bring you to where you need to be as it runs adjacent to Blundell Park. Supporter coaches should leave Grimsby Road via Tiverton Street and will be parked on Harrington Street.

By train:

The nearest station to the ground is Cleethorpes. This is around a mile from Blundell Park. It will take around 25 minutes to walk from the station to the ground.

Upon arrival at Cleethorpes train station, you will find yourself on the promenade. From here, you will find two viable routes to the ground.

Option 1: This is the route that is the most accessible. Leave the station to the south-west and turn onto Princes's Road. Follow this until you reach Isaac’s Hill Roundabout, turning right onto Grimsby Road. Continue on Grimsby Road and turn right onto Manchester Street (after Papa Johns). At the end of the street, follow the road left and continue until you reach the first set of turnstiles on the left (Harrington 2).

Option 2: This route is very similar in distance and journey time, but will take you on a seaside walk. Leave the station onto the North Promenade. From here, walk north-west up the Promenade and away from the Pier. You will see Fuller Street bridge and the ground to your left. Cross over the bridge, this brings you onto Harrington Street. The first set of turnstiles on the left (Harrington 2) are where away fans are located. This route is not wheelchair accessible.

By bus: 

Stagecoach operates services that run along Grimsby Road, with stops found near the ground. Supporters should look out for the number 9, 13 and 46 routes on matchdays.


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 last season, following incident during our home match against Newport County, and away match at Crewe Alexandra. These statements can be read HERE and HERE

The club reiterated this stance this season on pyrotechnics and crowd disorder after incidents at December's away game against Doncaster Rovers. CLICK HERE to read the statement. 

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 discriminatory abuse, tragedy chanting, 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. 

The club reiterated its stance on this following an incident at our recent Bristol Street Motors Trophy game against Manchester City Under-21s. CLICK HERE to read the statement. This stance was further reiterated following a recent league game at home to AFC Wimbledon. CLICK HERE to read the full statement. 

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


City fans can expect light showers with highs of 9°C all day.
