Nowadays, the Bradford & Bingley stand (formerly called 'Valley Parade') has a capacity of around 25,136, but in it's hay-day held a record attendance of 39,146.
Visiting fans are usually allocated around 1800 tickets, and will find themselves located behind the goal in the Symphony stand (upper & lower tiers) and in part of the Ciba stand (along the side). We were allocated 3,600 tickets equally divided between the two stands. The symphony stand was described to us as 'adequate for away supporters, if a bit small'. It does mean you are close to the action, for a better overall view try to get seats in the upper tier.
There has been much redevelopment at Valley parade, with a new stand behind the one goal, called the Carlsberg stand. The remaining side of the pitch is spanned by the Sunwin stand. This is an unusual stand, as it only covers three quarters of the length of the pitch. That said, they two stands are extremely impressive, it's just a pity the other quarter of the stand is made up of what can only be described as 'glorified portacabins'. There is a club shop located within the 'Sunwin' stand.
Cathy, a valley parade regular has e-mailed us and says 'Just for your info the new superstore (Upfront superstore) is located behind the Carlsberg stand. It's pretty damn big, it has a ground floor with loads of different stuff typical of what you would find in any sports store and then an upper floor dedicated to City stuff. It also has a rather nice cafe on the upper floor.'
