Bradford City to announce continuation of cheap tickets
Bradford City are to announce that they will be offering cheap season tickets for the 11th successive year.
The club have said that the prices will be set regardless of what division they are in next year with full details to be announced in the next few weeks. In previous years the club have waited until the summer to reveal the prices so that they know what division they will be in.
Bradford City Chief of Operations, James Mason said: “The club have committed to cheap season-tickets irrespective of which division we’re in, as has always been our mantra. It’s something that (former owners) Julian Rhodes and Mark Lawn have started and (current owners) Edin and Stefan are happy to continue. Saturday’s wonderful advert for League One football only emphasises that we were right ten years ago and we’re still right now."
He added “We’ve had virtually half the crowd at Fleetwood and Oldham recently and I imagine we’ll have big attendances coming up at Scunthorpe and Bury. Our commitment to affordable season-ticket prices is enabling our fans to travel up and down the country as well to follow the team. It’s also safeguarding the future of the club."
A bumper crowd of 21,190 saw Bradford draw 2-2 with Bolton on Saturday and the match was the third time that attendances at Valley Parade have broken the 20,000 barrier this season with an average attendance of 18,058, the 2nd highest in the division behind Sheffield United.
