NEARLY 40,000 Bradford fans will have the opportunity to take a walk down Wembley Way in the club’s bid to win this season’s League One play-off final on Saturday, May 20.

The club today confirmed it had been allocated 38,000 tickets for the West End of Wembley for the showpiece game against Millwall.

The Lions beat the Bantams in the play-off semi-finals last year, and Stuart McCall’s side will be looking for revenge in their bid to return to the Championship for the first time since 2004.

Tickets for the game go on sale via Ticketmaster from 8am tomorrow – Tuesday, May 9 – with prices in six categories ranging from £30 to £80 for adults, and £15 to £40 for concessions.

A statement on the club website said: “Tickets will be sold only online and over the phone. Due to the anticipated demand, the club and Ticketmaster recommend booking online as the easiest and most convenient method of booking.”

Sales for current season ticket and flexi-card holders are open from 8am on Tuesday, May 9, to midnight on Thursday, May 11.

A general sale to other Bradford City members will then begin at 8am on Friday, May 12, to midnight on Sunday, May 14.

If any tickets remain after this period, the club will make a decision if and how to sell them. The ticket office will only be open to serve disabled supporters.

James Mason, Bradford City chief operating officer, said the club had initially been given around 30,000 tickets, but requested more to allow season ticket and flexi-card holders the opportunity of two tickets each.

“Nothing surprises me with the wonderful support for this club,” he said.

“We have sold more than 18,600 season tickets for next year, and there’s no reason we can’t sell huge numbers for this game. We’ve enjoyed a great season under a Bradford hero in Stuart McCall.

“This is a third Wembley trip in four years, but it never lessens the appeal. The prize at the end of this is a place in the Championship, one of the world’s biggest leagues, and whatever happens, it’s going to be a fantastic spectacle for the third tier of English football.”

Mike Harrison, editor of the City Gent fanzine, said the club would be confident of selling “30,000 plus” tickets for the final.

“It would be an amazing achievement to sell 38,000, but if all 18,500 season ticket holders for next season decide to go, we will get close with those other fans that will go for the day out,” he said.

“Hopefully with that allocation, there shouldn’t be a mad scramble for tickets. It should be a good weekend.

“It could be a massive crowd for a League One final, somewhere approaching the record.”
