History and description

The stadium then ceased to be used for rugby and was renamed Valley Parade FC Ground. In 1904, Bradford City joined The Football League and the ground became their home. The Utilita Energy Stadium was built in 1886, but originally only used for rugby. This lasted until 1903 when the local rugby club was transformed into Bradford City FC. Bradford City then ceased to use the stadium for rugby and it was renamed Valley Parade FC Ground in 1904. The Valley Parade stadium was originally a modest facility, but this changed in 1908 when the club promoted to Division One and hired Archibald Leitch to rebuild it.

In 1911, Valley Parade recorded its highest attendance when 39,146 spectators witnessed a Cup quarter-final between Bradford and Burnley. This record is still in place today.

Valley Parade did not change much over the following decades; however, capacity was reduced as a result of safety measures following the Burnden Park stadium disaster.

In 1985, the stadium was in disrepair and it was the site of a devastating stadium disaster. During a league match with Lincoln, a fire broke out at the wooden main stand. This event resulted in 56 fans losing their lives in the blaze.

Bradford City subsequently went on exile while the investigation into the disaster continued, the main stand rebuilt, and improvements made to the Kop stand. The club moved back in December 1986.

Work continued in 1991 when a new all-seater stand got built at the Bradford end, which was followed in 1997 by a new stand at the Midland Road side. Finally, in 2013 the Kop stand got redeveloped into an all-seater stand, completing the stadium.

Valley Parade has had a number of sponsors in the last decade, most notably Bradford and Bingley Stadium and between 2007 and 2019 Coral Windows Stadium. The stadium has been called Utilita Energy Stadium since 2019.

How to get to Utilita Energy Stadium

Utilita Energy Stadium is located just north of Bradford, which is a walk from the city centre. The walk takes 15 to 20 minutes. Bradford Forster Station is the closest rail station to the stadium. It's a 15-minute walk, but only has service from Leeds. Bradford Interchange station is closer, but it has connections to other parts of England, not just Leeds. From London, a transfer of trains in Leeds is required.

Address: Valley Parade, Bradford, BD8 7DY
