This Saturday (3rd September) is Non-League Day, and several clubs are marking the occasion.
Bradford Park Avenue would like to take the opportunity to invite all football league season ticket holders to the Evostik NPL Premier Division clash against Chasetown at the Horsfall Stadium for half price.
As an initiative for the celebration of Non League Day on September 3rd 2011, on receipt of a valid season ticket at the turnstile, holders can gain admission to the game of a special discounted price of £5 (concessions £3 and accompanied children are welcome free of charge). This offer is also extended to the season ticket holders of Super League side Bradford Bulls.
Commenting on the club's special offer, Bradford Park Avenue chairman Dr John Dean has said; “This is a great opportunity for the club to attract fans from Leeds United who have no fixture on this day. Bradford City and Huddersfield Town have away fixtures, and their fans are also welcome to take advantage of this generous offer. In fact, the offer is extended to all professional football clubs, and it is a good opportunity to show you that the football is alive and well at non league level. You will receive a warm welcome at the Horsfall Stadium, and I am sure you will enjoy the day.”

Following Hednesford Town’s astonishing 5-4 victory over Stafford Rangers on Bank Holiday Monday, which took them to the summit of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division, the Club have announced a special offer for National Non-League Day on Saturday 3rd September, which hopes to encourage season ticket holders of the big four West Midlands teams to lap up the atmosphere at Keys Park.
