Ashton Gate Stadium is the home of Bristol City Football Club and Bristol Rugby Club. Work has now been completed to transform Ashton Gate into a state-of-the-art 26,500 capacity stadium.

The work consisted of three separate phases to the Wedlock, Dolman and Williams Stands. The existing 86-year-old Wedlock Stand was demolished and completely rebuilt, with new conference facilities, administration offices, sports bar, café and shops, before the Dolman Stand was also redeveloped, with a new lower tier installed.

Work than began to demolish and rebuild the Williams Stand with a two-tiered stand, including corporate boxes. In August 2016, this was unveiled as the Lansdown Stand.
