Thought I would post this on here to grab your attention.

Driving up to Bradford for the game on Saturday, been lumbered as the designated driver! I've been up to Bradford before, on the train rather than driving, but that was many moons ago when we were in this division so I remember very little.

What is the parking like? A quick bit of research uncovered little and what with the game being a sell-out, I can imagine the street parking to be chaotic.

Any helpful advice would be much appreciated!

When I went there was a car park just behind the away end on a big field that was really muddy. I would imagine it will be a lot busier than when I went though..

If you are arriving reasonably earlier the best place to park is on canal road just on from all the car sales places. You can park on midland road but you would need to be very early.

We always park on Gracechurch St. which is a bit closer than Canal Road to the ground. Should be spaces around there if you get there for 11ish I would have thought.

When I'm able to go I park towards the top of Queens Road near where it meets Bolton Road.

Will be busy Saturday as you'd expect but if you pitch up say 11.30 I think you'd be fine - from there it's a 15 minute walk to the ground.

There are 'pay' car parks operating on/near Midland Road (which runs behind the stand you'll be in) but I believe they take ages to get out of after the match.

You beat me to it Southbank as i was going to say the same thing.Driving up Friday night(Thankfully i am not the designated driver) Whats the traffic like after the game has finished? Thinking of parking in the city center before the game and walking it.

For me canal road is the safest as its a busy road so less chance of crime etc though the police do patrols. After the game the traffic is worst on Manningham lane but normally disperses in around 20 mins for very busy games.
