The Bantams will be looking to extend their unbeaten streak to four games in Sky Bet League Two when facing Salford City this afternoon.

We have created an Away Day Guide with some helpful information ahead of the 3.00pm clash.


Peninsula Stadium

Moor Lane


M7 3BS 


The stadium is usually referred to as Moor Lane but currently goes by the name of the Peninsula Stadium due to sponsorship obligations. 

Manchester Rugby Club used the facility between 1908 and 1969. 

The ground has then been the Ammies’ home since 1978 and has gone through major developments over the past few years, which has seen the capacity rise from 1,600 to 5,108. 

The venue is made up of four stands: the West Stand, East Stand (visiting supporters), Moor Lane North Stand (some visiting supporters), and the Neville Road South Stand. 


Away tickets for this afternoon's clash are SOLD OUT.

Over 1,300 City supporters will descend on Moor Lane, and be split across the North Stand (seated) and East Stand (terrace). 


There are no car parks available at the stadium, however, fairly limited street parking is available around the local area. 

You are able to park just outside the ground on Moor Lane and adjacent streets, but be mindful these areas get very busy on a matchday. 


To drink:

With no pubs located in the close vicinity of the ground, supporters located in the North Stand (seated tickets) are permitted access to The '92 Bar - before and after kick-off, and at half-time. 

To eat:

Kiosks inside the Peninsula Stadium serve alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages on top of hot and cold refreshments such as burgers, pies and pasties. 


By car: 

For supporters travelling from Bradford, you will need to use the M62. 

The ground is located just over two miles away from Junction 17 off the M60. 

From that point, take the A56 towards the Manchester City Centre and continue straight. 

You will eventually pass a Lidl on your left-hand side. 

Then, take the third turning on your right into Moor Lane where you arrive at the stadium. 

By train:

There is no walkable train station next to the stadium. The closest is Manchester Victoria which is three miles away. 

Once you get off the train there, a taxi is recommended which can be found immediately outside the station.

By bus: 

You are able to catch the number 97 or 98 bus from Manchester Victoria station which takes you close to the stadium, and this only costs £2. 

The 97 and 98 starts from Shudehill Interchange in Manchester City centre and travels up the A56 Bury New Road which has a junction with Moor Lane (the bus stops here). Journey time is typically 20-30 minutes.


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.


Light rain is expected with highs of 15°C at the Peninsula Stadium.
