Half a great stadium, half a joke stadium. It is very tired in places. That said, good value for money and a great atmosphere.

I have visited this stadium twice as an away fan. It is really luck of the the draw, once we were Dallas Stand which is simply awful. The toilets and other facilities are probably the worst I have experienced at any ground. On this occasion...More

Another great afternoon at Valley Parade. We took a group of teenagers out for the day. This involved a visitor to the Bradford City grounds. They thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.

Poor facilities. Not enough food outlets. Expensive food. Poor view pillers obstruct many seats. Stand too close to goal line. Seats are small no legroom. People great stewards and home fans.
