Bumper weekend of football at Ashton Gate

Fans can watch England battle it out for the World Cup third-place play-off at Ashton Gate's World Cup Fan Village, following the immediate conclusion of City's match with Shrewsbury Town.

Lee Johnson's squad host John Askey's Shrews on Saturday (July 14th, 1pm kick-off) as they return to BS3 for the first time before the new season starts.

The match could hand summer signings Andreas Weimann, Adam Webster, Hakeeb Adelakun, Jack Hunt and Marley Watkins their first experience at the Gate in City colours.

Tickets remain on sale for the pre-season fixture.

Ashton Gate's ever-popular World Cup Fan Village will also be screening England's final World Cup match with Belgium (3pm kick-off), live on the big screens.

Gareth Southgate’s Lions went within touching distance of Sunday's final in Russia, only to lose 2-1 in extra time to Croatia in Wednesday’s heartbreaking semi-final.

The third-place play-off screening will not be a ticketed event. The Fan Village has proved incredibly popular, with tens of thousands of fans watching the action on the big screens over the last few weeks.

More football will return to the Gate before the end of the month too, when City host the Premier League's AFC Bournemouth for their final pre-season outing before the season starts on August 4th.
