TICKETS

This match is SOLD OUT. Do not visit the stadium if you do not have a ticket.

BAND ON STAGE

Hooper will be the band on stage on the night. They have been branded as Bristol's biggest cover band, having played sell-out shows at the Fleece and Colston Hall. Hooper have been wowing audiences with their eclectic mix of pop and rock interpretations for over a decade. The four accomplished, Bristol-bred musicians understand how to create an exhilarating vibe at their gigs. Hooper’s energy and commitment to musicality can make you feel like you’re at Wembley!

PROGRAMMES

A special souvenir programme will be on sale on the night, costing £4 from sellers approaching the stadium, as well as in the Bristol Sport Store and in selected concession stands.

The A4, 84-page copy includes interviews with Shaun Goater, Josh Brownhill, Korey Smith, Aaron Wilbraham & Greg Cunningham. There's also features on Gerry Gow, Joe Royle and City's previous semi-final encounters in the League Cup.

PARKING & TRAVEL

AG1, AG2 and AG4 First Bus routes will be operating.

SPORTS BAR & PIZZERIA

An extended Fan Village will be in operation from 3pm, with a raft of food and drink outlets, along with live music.

COFFEE SHOP

Please note the Coffee Shop will close early on Tuesday at 2pm. An alternative pop-up Coffee Shop will be available from outside the stadium to compensate. 

STORE

The Store at Ashton Gate will open from 9am.

SUPPORTERS CLUB & TRUST BAR

Access to the Supporters Club and Trust Bar is via the Sports Bar & Pizzeria. Go through the main bar and up the stairs at the far end. The bar is on your left at the top of the stairs. There is a lift that takes you straight there as well.

RUCKSACKS

Ashton Gate Stadium asks supporters not to bring large rucksacks on matchdays, following advice from the National Counter Terrorism Office and Avon and Somerset Police.

Fans will still be able to bring smaller handbags into the stadium, although these will be subject to the usual search process.

An Ashton Gate spokesman said: “The searching process will always be subject to change and whilst there is no specific threat to any Sports Ground, we must ensure that we remain vigilant and the message to spectators is to ‘Be Alert not Alarmed’.”

If larger bags are brought to the stadium, they will be subject to a thorough search, with a bag and tag procedure in place.
