Bradford City v Tranmere match switched again to Sunday
City’s home match against Tranmere next month has been switched for a second time.
The League One clash had originally been brought forward a day from Saturday, October 12 at the request of West Yorkshire Police because of an English Defence League demonstration in the city centre scheduled for the same time.
But fans had expressed regret that the alternative Friday night kick off clashed with England’s match against Montenegro in their World Cup qualifying campaign.
So Valley Parade officials have had a rethink and the Tranmere game will now be played on Sunday, October 13 at 3pm.
A club statement read: “Bradford City have listened to fans’ reaction by moving the home game against Tranmere Rovers to Sunday.
“The game was originally switched to Friday night but this is the same date as England’s World Cup qualifier against Montenegro, which is being televised live on terrestrial TV.
“So to avoid Bradford and Tranmere fans having a club versus country dilemma, the game has now been rearranged for the Sunday slot.
“The club, once again, apologises for any inconvenience caused to supporters for these changes and thanks Tranmere Rovers for their help with this switch to Sunday afternoon.”
