PREPARATION for the new season at Bradford (Park Avenue) is well underway with plans on and off the pitch almost complete.

The 3G pitch is starting to be laid, while the club have also announced their on the gate tickets prices for the 2020/21 National League North campaign.

After the club secured a 35-year lease on the Horsfall Stadium, over a month's work has gone into replacing the old turf, fitting drainage and levelling the new surface out.

The long awaited perimeter fence is also ready for instillation and work on renovating the changing rooms is about to commence.

In recent weeks, volunteers have helped to clean and replace broken seats in the main stand, and clear the area behind the clubhouse to make way for a newly refurbished beer garden.

With Mark Bower and his backroom staff creating a strong squad, there will be 21 opportunities to come down to Horsfall to experience the rollercoaster ride that is non league football.

After an extensive review of the market and discussions with fans, Avenue have decided to adjust their on the day matchday prices.

They are now as follows: Adults - £14, Concession - £10, Student - £5, Youth (12-17) - £3, Junior (under 11, must be accompanied by an adult) - £1. Family tickets and special pricing for students, youths and juniors will also be on offer.

This year's season tickets will have a personal feel about them as they will include an individual's name and picture. The new cards will take seven days to process from order.

There is also an early bird deal. If a supporter buys their season ticket before the end of August, they will receive 20% off all club merchandise.

The season ticket can be bought by either card or Paypal, traditional mail after filling in a form, or in person, where there will be several chances in the coming weeks to pay by card, cash or cheque.

In light of the pandemic, if the league games are to be played behind closed doors then the season ticket will provide customers with free viewing of a pay-per-view stream of the match.

If the season is curtailed and the full 21 games are not played, then a pro rata refund will be made for any balance of outstanding games.
