Bradford City announce sales details for Wembley tickets

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: City players celebrate reaching the Capital One Cup final City players celebrate reaching the Capital One Cup final

Tickets for the Capital One Cup final will go on sale from 9am on Wednesday.

City have confirmed that season-ticket and flexicard holders will have a fortnight’s exclusive window until the close of business on Wednesday, February 13 to buy.

They will be able to purchase a maximum of three tickets per person.

These can be bought via telephone on a special ticketing contact centre which has been set up or online via the club website.

Cup final tickets will NOT be on sale from the ground but the ticket office will provide a “help zone” to assist with any problems that fans may have.

The exception will be those buying tickets for supporters with a disability who have special seating requirements.

City have advised fans to log on to the ticketing system before Wednesday to make sure their accounts are up to date and that friends and family are “linked” where applicable.

The club have been given an allocation of 31,852 for Wembley. Plans to put tickets on general sale will be announced nearer the time.

Don’t miss the Telegraph & Argus on Tuesday for an in-depth question and answer session with City director of operations David Baldwin.

As a concession ticket holder will i be able to purchase one for an over 60's supporter who is unable to attend all games and has no link to a pc. if so how do i prove d.o.b. online, this of course means me asking for two concessionary tickets will the club charge the full amount for my second ticket ? oh! before anybody posts back i am not looking for a cheap deal this is just an enquiry.

BRADFORD CITY DIRECTORS YOU HAVE GOT THE WEMBLEY TICKET ALLOCATION VERY BADLY WRONG. The support of BCFC is more than just the season ticket holders. I agree that season ticket holders deserve priority and should be allocated TWO tickets each. However, by giving THREE tickets each to season ticket holders then non season ticket holders are being treated really poorly. As a former Bantams Bar season ticket holder some loyal long standing fans such as me cannot justify having a season or flexi ticket as I work every Saturday and am away most Tuesday/Wednesdays with work. Despite this I suport the club every season by going to Valley Parade (and also supporting away) when I can and buying shirts, scarfes, kit, etc. I have been to hundreds of non glamour matches (including many pre season matches) and do not expect a Wembley ticket but do expect a fair chance of a Wembley ticket. I was at both the Arsenal and Villa games having waited a long time for tickets and paid extra which as this was fair was not an issue. Put simply if I cannot a ticket to Wembley having supported my club through hundreds and hundreds of matches over three decades then your poor allocation of tickets will have let me down and damaged my own feelings for the club. When this cup run is over you will need fans like me to still come - please remember this.

Theres a section on the BCFC site for online ticket sales. As a ST holder you need you season ticket number and your postcode to access that bit of the site.
If its the same as for the Arsenal/Villa games theres a drop down box that lets you add the tickets according to child, adult etc.

And Eldwick - I wouldn't worry too much. The actual figure for ST and flexes is around 8500, which means even if each person takes 3 there will still be over 5,000 left. And then a lot of people won't even use their 3 - out of 4 of use who go it looks like there will be only 4 or 5 in our group going to Wembley.

We 'only' had 18,000 home fans at Villa, its often the same for big games - huge upsurge in sales at the start (8000 sales on first day for Villa) then rapid drop until they go on general sale.

Sorry, but I can't agree. If it had been set at just 2 per person, you are allowing plenty of opportunity for fans to get tickets that have never or rarely been to VP. How is that any fairer than me taking my 2 kids who were season ticket holders until they started work or could no longer afford to go?

You say you can't get to games due to work commitments, but then add that you managed to get to both the Villa and Arsenal games. How come you weren't working?

Look, my eldest son can't get to games anymore as he works nights, including weekends. As such, when we kick off on a Saturday afternoon, he is just going to bed. When the games finish on a Tues night, he is about to wake up again. Despite this, he bought himself a flexi card. He has used it once...! It has cost him £60 to watch that 1 game, but he is now going to Wembley. He has already booked off his holiday.

What I am getting at is that YOU also had the opportunity to buy a flexi card at £50, but chose not to. Now you are bleating that it isn't fair that you may have to join a queue for a ticket..!

it must be very difficult to get the balance right. if there are 4 in a family, and provided they can buy seats together they might all go. but if they can't, they probably won't. etc........

Well if you still come and only go to to 6 games a season. With a 50/50 that would be £50 + £10 x 7 = £120. Any other match after that and you would save money.
If you really support the club, then that would not have been an issue.
If you supported the club in the way you say you did, then i am sure you will have firends who still go and if they are true friends they will get you a ticket. However if you have a chip on your shoulder, then perhaps you have no friends?

If you've been a fan for as long as you say surely you have friends who are season ticket holders and willing to purchase you a ticket?

I see many differing views on here but one thing is clear, all are supporters of Bradford City. I think the Directors have put two proverbial fingers up to the casual supporter who cannot (for many differing reasons) attend every home match by chosing three per STH. As a casual supporter for many years with a young son, I was encouraged NOT to buy a flex card or season ticket if I thought I would attend 5 or less matches. The club have now severely limited my chances of getting a ticket partly through following their advice (!!). This is despite me spending £150 plus food and programme each year since I was last a STH in 2008. Very good way to treat a supporter of 30 years. Good luck City, I hope I get a tickets for both my son and I but if not I fear the football club will get less £ of me in future. CTID

The club have got it spot on. Lets be honest, they will be at least ten to twelve thousand tickets left after the season ticket holders have got theres. Bearing in mind we don't even get them crowds now surely that is plenty for the casual supporter? If not where are you all week to week? Surely we don't have 20000 gloating casual supporters on top of season ticket die hards. If so you can't all be working every sat and Tuesday night. Ten to twelve thousand is plenty

I don't remember the club offering ANY advice. I think what they said was that football was accessible for all, irrelevant of budget.

It said u may be 'better off' buying a season ticket for £200 if you intend going to 15+ games a season. A flexi card for less than 15 but more than 5 and if u expect to go only 5 times are less, then u still have the option on just paying £20 on the gate at those matches.

The club were advertising season tickets/flexis so were highlighting the benefit/savings of each option. They did NOT give advice and you chose the option that YOU felt best. Stop friggin bleating...!

I agree to a certain extent with Eldwick.

Of course priority should be given to current season ticket holders but the other big question here has to be why do they need 2 weeks to purchase tickets and let others know they will be attending or not and arrange travel accommodation etc.

I haven't been a season ticket holder now for about 10 years but followed city home and away for the 10 years preceding that. I live down south and can only attend occasionally but made it to the semi in Birmingham.

I would love to take my dad who lives at the other end of the country but he is elderly and ideally arrangements need to be made in advance, and not 10 days in advance.

Why do season ticket holders need 2 weeks to log on and buy tickets?

Strange really.

P.S. hopefully someone from BCFC is reading this.

Swansea are making tickets available on general sale from the 7th FEB after leeway for season ticket holders to purchase.

Please give us chance to know if we can get tickets or not in a reasonable time before the 24th Feb and not from the 14th Feb only.

Any season tickets needing IT lessons in order to achieve logging on within A WEEK, and I will personally guide them through it on your behalf :)

Sorry, but I can't agree. If it had been set at just 2 per person, you are allowing plenty of opportunity for fans to get tickets that have never or rarely been to VP. How is that any fairer than me taking my 2 kids who were season ticket holders until they started work or could no longer afford to go?

You say you can't get to games due to work commitments, but then add that you managed to get to both the Villa and Arsenal games. How come you weren't working?

Look, my eldest son can't get to games anymore as he works nights, including weekends. As such, when we kick off on a Saturday afternoon, he is just going to bed. When the games finish on a Tues night, he is about to wake up again. Despite this, he bought himself a flexi card. He has used it once...! It has cost him £60 to watch that 1 game, but he is now going to Wembley. He has already booked off his holiday.

What I am getting at is that YOU also had the opportunity to buy a flexi card at £50, but chose not to. Now you are bleating that it isn't fair that you may have to join a queue for a ticket..!
I totally agree. If you don't are cannot go to vp much then you should of bought a flexi card. I bought mine for £25 as the club reduced it from £50 just before the season started. Not been funny but why should big game glory hunters get first choice!
Support your club and be rewarded with first grab at tickets.

t forget the times the club has been out there with begging bucket in hand collecting funds and donations from the good folk of this city....nah you can't Remeber that as you care not to!

To all season ticket holders and VIP's, please don't squander this chance to offer tickets to newcomers to valley parade....the next generation of season ticket holders and regular supporters of this club need this type of Wembley appearance to create memories to last another one hundred years.

You will find that putting them on general sale will cause more problem with touts as that way there is no control and fans who turn up every week might miss out.

The club are spot on here and about 20k will safely make their way into the hands of proper city fans. The rest can take their chances with general sale.

Our recent success is down to first of all the chairmen Lawn and Rhodes and their backroom staff and then PP and his backroom staff.

Following that its down to the people who actually put money into the club and the players.

If people who dont show any commitment to the club and cant get a ticket, tough sh1te.

The clubs got it right again regarding the ticket allocation of three per ST/FLEXI holders. It would have been madness not to give the long suffering but loyal BCFC fans every opportunity of taking their famly members to this once in a lifetime BCFC Wembley final appearence. Well done to all at BCFC for this well thought out ticketing arrangement. There will of course be a few thousand tickets still left for those without ST/FLEXI's to purchase in a couple of weeks time.

Reading further down the comments, someone said all tickets wont go ie the full allocation to seaon ticket holders.

I beg to differ, the full allocation will go as mates of mates will see it as an opportunity to go to the capital for the weekend. We may inherit some scum and udders fans.

I see many differing views on here but one thing is clear, all are supporters of Bradford City. I think the Directors have put two proverbial fingers up to the casual supporter who cannot (for many differing reasons) attend every home match by chosing three per STH. As a casual supporter for many years with a young son, I was encouraged NOT to buy a flex card or season ticket if I thought I would attend 5 or less matches. The club have now severely limited my chances of getting a ticket partly through following their advice (!!). This is despite me spending £150 plus food and programme each year since I was last a STH in 2008. Very good way to treat a supporter of 30 years. Good luck City, I hope I get a tickets for both my son and I but if not I fear the football club will get less £ of me in future. CTID
I don't remember the club offering ANY advice. I think what they said was that football was accessible for all, irrelevant of budget.

It said u may be 'better off' buying a season ticket for £200 if you intend going to 15+ games a season. A flexi card for less than 15 but more than 5 and if u expect to go only 5 times are less, then u still have the option on just paying £20 on the gate at those matches.

As a casual supporter for many years with a young son, I was encouraged NOT to buy a flex card or season ticket if I thought I would attend 5 or less matches. The club have now severely limited my chances of getting a ticket partly through following their advice (!!). This is despite me spending £150 plus food and programme each year since I was last a STH in 2008. Very good way to treat a supporter of 30 years. Good luck City, I hope I get a tickets for both my son and I but if not I fear the football club will get less £ of me in future. CTID[/p][/quote]I don't remember the club offering ANY advice. I think what they said was that football was accessible for all, irrelevant of budget. It said u may be 'better off' buying a season ticket for £200 if you intend going to 15+ games a season. A flexi card for less than 15 but more than 5 and if u expect to go only 5 times are less, then u still have the option on just paying £20 on the gate at those matches.

ley, Wembley, we're the famous Bradford City and its true fans are going to Wembley :-)))))))))))))))))) or We may inherit some scum and udders fans.

"However, Tickets should be available to all on a first come first served basis. This system of allocating tickets to season ticket holders seems preferential and is going to encourage touts to make a few bob"

Rubbish.
Im not going all 'super fan' here, but why should I and many other ST holders, some of whom go up and down the country as well, possibly be put in the same bracket as the Jonny-come-latelys? FFS, I know people who are armchair Man United fans who all of sudden are asking me to get tickets. I know people who've never been to BCAFC games and have developed a sudden interest.

I'll be damned if the club suddenly start valuing people like that on equal terms with people I know who run supporters groups/coaches and fans who travel to tinpot grounds 6 hours drive away.

There is a massive, obvious difference between people who are fans who haven't been an ST holder, or have moved away etc. And the people who are clearly jumping on the bandwagon.

With all due respect there are some frankly pathetic responses to Eldwick person. I attended my first City match in 1969, have been a season ticket holder for many years, mainly during the dark days of the 4th division 1970s. 1982 was brilliant; the 80's were a decade of highs (11.05.85 the obvious exception) but who will ever forget Carlisle away first match in division 2? Then nearly into division 1 and eventually the prem when guess what? So called supporters jumping on the BCFC bandwagon. I live away from Bradford now, do not have a season ticket any longer but go to probably 15+ away games per season. Does this make me any less loyal than season ticket holders? The club needs to be careful not to disenfranchise non season ticket loyal supporters who have been there through the genuinely grim times and are still there now.

Not a bad point in response to ST holders on here.

Victor Clayton I don't disagree with looking after season ticket holders; they are, as you rightly point out, the life blood of all clubs. However, allocating 3 tickets per season ticket plus the lengthy window seems a little bit out of balance in my opinion.

Look, at the end of the day they are not going to change their minds now so take it in and try and work out how your going to get a ticket/tickets. Personally I think there will be a lot of hype to begin with but everyone wanting one will get one. Villa home wasn't a sell out.
The one thing I worry about is the general sale, if it is just completely general sale then anyone from lands end to John o groats could phone or register to get a ticket. I think a tier system should be used for this ie ticket Stubbs to combat any Tom Richard or Harry going. Anyway remember "it's only a cup" !

I will help those like I've said above. But, how do you disagree with TVOR?

I'm one of those who went down to Oxford (as I do every game) and froze my bits off with only 10,000 others. How come 20'000 plus can "manage" to get to big games yet can't get to league matches.

TVOR is right. You had your chance. Flexi tickets.

Now youre sweating unlucky.

He's talking about our last home game, as Oxford get nowhere near the 10k he mentioned.

In round 3 of this comp it's worth noting only 4k bothered to show up.

Alvechurch you live abroad and cannot get to games. Eldwick, who lives five miles away has a hysterical outburst and sulks. As has been pointed out he now 'follows' City, but no longer attends, until surprise surprise, he can get to the two high profile games!!! There were only limited seats available for those matches as ST's and 50/50's got two each and the away supporters got 4,500 leaving theoretically about 2,000/3,000 seats. Yet hey he got one. If all ST's and 50/50 took up their maximum allocation at Wembley there would still be about 6,000 seats spare.
What is it about this person that they feel, as a former supporter (now just a follower) that they have the God given right to a ticket!
If they have been going for years and years then surely they will have a family or friend who can get them a ticket. Perhaps if their friends or family were limited to 1 or 2 tickets they may not choose to give Eldwick one!
In the meantime if Eldwick is such a 'loner' then they will have to get in the line for one of the 6,000+.

As a former Bantams Bar season ticket holder some loyal long standing fans such as me cannot justify having a season or flexi ticket as I work every Saturday and am away most Tuesday/Wednesdays with work. Despite this I suport the club every season by going to Valley Parade (and also supporting away) when I can and buying shirts, scarfes, kit, etc. I have been to hundreds of non glamour matches (including many pre season matches) and do not expect a Wembley ticket but do expect a fair chance of a Wembley ticket. I was at both the Arsenal and Villa games having waited a long time for tickets and paid extra which as this was fair was not an issue. Put simply if I cannot a ticket to Wembley having supported my club through hundreds and hundreds of matches over three decades then your poor allocation of tickets will have let me down and damaged my own feelings for the club. When this cup run is over you will need fans like me to still come - please remember this.
can you tell me why we cant buy tickets at the ticket office sales. to go online im told you have to have debit card,so what if we cant pay this way, i have my reasons for not having a debit card, so can i pay cash please,

I must congratulate the chairmen on theIr decision to give season ticket holders 3 tickets each!!!!
.
I like many other city fans have travelled the country for 20 years and 12 of them have been very miserable indeed and now I can chose to share my dream day with people I chose to and the people who have put up with me spending way too much money following city. Unlike the arsenal game when i was just surrounded very dulL people who did their best to ruin the atmosphere.
.
I appreciate they'll be people who can't go to city any more for a number of reasons who have previously gone but if you have been following them for so many years has some people say and it's only this year that they cannot go then surely you are good friends with season ticket holders???

HAPPY WATCHING ON TV PLASTICS

Eldwick uses the excuse of not getting a £25 flexicard due to work but had no problem attending the games against Arsenal and Villa. Does your work pattern work om the basis of size of game? There is easily the 3 home night games a season that make the the £25 flexicard.pay itself back and it's no ones fault but yours for not getting one.

The clubs excellent flexi card offer at only fifty pounds to secure your seat for the season for those who knew they couldn't attend many games knowing they would get priority for cup tickets means there really is no excuse or sob stories for people who couldn't support the club for fifty quid!

Wembley ticket policy is spot on and correct!

The club stated on twitter there are almost 10000 season ticket /flexi holders but there will be other tickets available , Wembley holds 90000 so if people really want them they will be able to purchase from other places.

Lets fill the place with bradford fans!!

For those of you who also will be missing the most obvious points in all this, the FA and Football League will have leaned on BCFC to make sure that the majority of tickets are sold to season ticket holders or through them because they do not want over 15k worth of tickets availible for general sale for one of their cup finals.

So for those blaming the board, you are more than likely to be wrong. Swansea are offering 2 per season ticket holder as they have double the number of season tickets, trust me if they had the same they would be doing the same.

There will still be plenty on sale when it comes to general sale so my advise is get there early, surely as Eldwick bantam works every day of the week he'll find a fault with that too.

#majority of people who did not re-new their tickets or get a flexi card did for no other reason apart from they had, had a enough

#the minority will have reasons why they didnt purchase a seaon ticket but probably could have bought a flexi card?

#The club had no choice but to let someone down and I am glad its the majority as they are known as PLASTICS hahahahahahhaha

Gentlemnbob.....I have a number of friends wo want my tickets but if I can not let a City supporting friend have 1, you can have 1 of mine ;-)

While I can empathise with what you are saying, surely you know someone who is a season ticket or flexicard holder who could get you a ticket?

The added advantage being that you could then sit with them, not on your own.

Don't care, same goes to the rest of the bleating non-regular supporters, the club hasn't limited your chances YOU have. And if the £50 at the start of the season was tooo much( ???) then they released again at Christmas with a price of £25, these extra sales by the way are counted as STs when purchasing so the truer figure for ST holders able to buy 3 tickets is just under 10k which means just over 2k for general sale to those who claim to support the club but have no physical evidence of this.

Had to laugh reading this. I've had the same thing. Bradfordians who totally disclaim their birthplace; support Man Utd or similar and NOW they want to go to Wembley. I cannot believe that some people think the club should allocate tickets to suit them...It's quite sensible to let the season ticket holders themselves be responsible for the distribution of tickets rather than the club. Everyone knows that a season ticket is a good value way of seeing home games and a sure fire way of NEVER missing any big games. I'm sure that there are lots of ex-City fans who feel that they are entitled to tickets but you are just self-centred *****.

Besides, anyone who really wants to go to the game should not have any difficulty in acquiring a ticket sp stop fretting.

Each year I buy 6 season tickets 1 for my son who lives in Newcastle, 3 for his daughters, 1 for my son who lives in Dorset and 1 for me. My sons can only occasionally attend home matches and probably go to more away fixtures than those at Valley Parade but despite this they have had season tickets since the season following their 5th birthday.
Now we are entitled to 18 Wembley tickets but only intend to buy 13. So cheer up those that live in Eldwick or nearby and choose not to buy a season ticket - at least 5 spare tickets will be added to the 6000 floating tickets available from the 14th Feb.

LOL what an idiot
Come March when the Cup run is over and the team are once again mid table in League 2 Im sure you will be happy with the 10k or so "TRUE" supporters attending week in week out at VP and other grounds. You really are a idiot if you believe the "plastic" supporters wont add anything. I now know of 6 season ticket holders who are buying 3 and selling two to the highest bidder so thats 12 plastic attending already ! Your truly are an idiot and not a proper fan if you dont understand how this cup run will add to not only the clubs fanbase but also the revenue raised from the clubs profile
10K true supporter for a team mid table in L2 is bloody good IMO
I would agree with you but when there's potential for a lot more which in turn leads to more revenue / players / managers / back room staff / facilities it would be stupid not to jump on the commercial bandwagon would it not. I'm sure the directors know this anyway even if some stupid supporters dont

I know for a fact there are four fans in Sligo who've got flexi cards for this season...they've been to two games...i'm sorry i'm struggling to see what the problem is...there will be a few thousand tickets left for those people that chose not to invest £50 in the club at the start of the season...enough to cater for most everone.

of course all are welcome, old and new. we have around ten thousand season ticket holders and about 31 thousand tickets for the final. so there will be 20 thousand potential new season ticket holders going. the way they are allocated makes little difference in the long run. call me stupid (again) but I just don't get your logic.

I agree with Eldwick. I was a season ticket holder for 12 years from 1988/89 onwards (i.e., through some pretty dark years..John Docherty anyone?). I've probably been to around 500 matches home and away. I'm not a season ticket holder anymore; circumstances and (dare I say it) priorities change, but I suspect I still have much more attachment to and interest in BCFC than the vast majority of the 16,000 people who just happen to know a season ticket holder and fancy a day trip to Wembley! Still, there we have it...I'll just have to join the rest of the non Season Ticket holding plebs on 14th Feb.

Would just like to point out a few things here. Season ticket holders at all clubs get first choice when tickets go on sale. This game has nothing to do with The FA it is the FOOTBALL LEAGUE CUP.
Lets not forget City had to get the OK from the Football League about how they were going to sell the tickets so they must be happy

non season ticket holders shouldn't be complaining. Their only potential gripe is the length of time season ticket holders have to purchase their tickets. posibly making arrangements for travel etc more difficult.

You had the choice to purchase or not like everyone else. The past 10 years for us season ticket holders have been very hard at times but we stuck through it. Can others say the same?

Most non season ticket holders understand thats the gamble you take and that loyalty should be rewarded. Without the season ticket holders purchasing every year regardless of reward we most likely wouldn't have a club to support never mind at wembley.

My advice is save 5 to 10 pounds each week and buy a season ticket next year and each year after that.....that way if we ever do something like this again then you'll be the one smiling......

The club has done all it can to attract people over the past five/six years; to the point where it was possible to acquire a flexi-card for £25.00. If you were sufficiently dis-interested up to August 2012 then there really is no excuse. This is from a Leeds fan who purchased a flexi-card so I could take my son to watch a football club that is deserving of our support. It is about the here and now and not about how many games you went to in better times.

Further to my previous comment, if Leeds do make it to Wembley (very unlikely I might add) I would not expect to receive a ticket based on my past support. In fact, I would be more likely to feel guilty for being a part-timer.

And on the Other - the "Can't get to EVERY match but I still love the club and..... .....(then you get theSupporters Historic C.V. to justify said persons right to buy a Wembley Ticket!) And BOTH sets of supporters have an "absolute right" to their points of view.............How ever What I personally have found in falling regrettably into the latter category is that - Whilst if you are a S T - F C holder then it is ALL "very" straightforward and .............. ..........BOY will all those families of Dad - Mum + 1 or 2 Kids "Make a killing" selling ALL those 3 tickets apiece on th Black Market ?? 3 Tickets "EACH" - Utterly Bonkers - aint TWO enough ? Whereas if youre one of the poor sods (quite clearly now regarded as second class fans) who's spent a small fortune over the years - 46 in my own case - especially following the Cup Run - Home and Away - its a case of ...... .........Well - "Thank You Very Much" but we can't promise that you are gonna have a "Cat in Hells Chance" of actually personally witnessing a piece of History last witnessed in 1911 despite paying £1,000's and £1,000's over the years to (in the main) be VERY VERY Dissapointed! What makes matters worse is that the clubs organisation and attitude to te "great disenfranchised" 2nd class supporters since getting toWembley has been at BEST - "Administratively Hopeless" and at WORST "Bordering on Contempt"....What do I mean? Well am I the only one who hs NOT had a phone call to god knows how many numbers NOT answered since about a week ago? I "kid" you not. So I go down to the ground and --- "Hey - Lets play it your way then... Ive a load of cards here - even CASH if you prefer??? Please Can I BUY a season ticket or maybe even a Flexi - Card?? (I ask wth genuine "hope" in my heart?) The entirely jaded ticket seller type person with a look of disdain informs me that -...........(wait for it) ................ ....."They" stopped selling them YESTERDAY".......... .......Did "they" Really? So what do we do to "Get a ticket" I ask because "They" were MORE THAN HAPPY to take nearly £400.00 from me and my couple of mates for the Arsenal & Villa games? .........And ....."They" didnt seem to care a jot when taking y money then wether me - my son or pals were Season Ticket or Flexi Card Holders............. In fact if they had relied solely on that quartile of fan base to the exclusion of all of us 2nd Class Fans ........ Then Hey Presto - against Arsenal alone there would have been around NINE THOUSAND FEWER CITY SUPPORTERS - You get my drift? Having visited the ground again yesterday I am informed that there will be an "announcement going out" (to the sub-strata supporters) sometime in early February - So we "untouchables" must ALL wait with baited breath for "that" then mustn't we. As I said ..........the way its been handled is a mess and frankly "totally divisive" towards a Fan Base that in our "massed united hordes" - when working with the guys on the pitch (as a 12th man) to ..."slay the mighty" on those Glory Glory History making Nights - Didn't identify each supporter as being either - First Class or (as it now seems) "Second" class in their Passion - Fervour and yes - "Love" ..........for the Team - The Club and indeed the City of Bradford. "Unity" has been our "strength" - the events as are now unfolding threaten that new found strength and could leave many very loyal lifetime supporters with a "very" bitter taste in their mouths after a lifetime of loyalty and support for the cause that is Bradford City AFC - Lets hope this situation gets sorted an that all TRUE supporters bingleybantam-ms54

I do not want the following to appear as though it is aimed at you (bingleybantam). However, I disagree.

Anyone with a genuine interest in the 2012-13 campaign would have realised that a flexi-card (priced at £50.00) would only have needed to attend five games in order to recoup their outlay.

Fot those who bought at £25.00, attendance at three games would have even represented a saving.

For me, those who are complaining need to look at the incentives offered by Mark Lawn and Julian Rhodes to attract you to Valley Parade. I wonder if your "lifetime of loyalty and support" is all that you make it out to be. Either that or you have been willing to pay £20.00 to attend on a match-by-match basis.

You pay your money (or not in this case) and take your choice.
