SPECIAL OFFERS

The club will be offering DOUBLE DISCOUNT on concession purchases of food and drink inside the stadium between 6pm-7pm on the night.

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.

In addition, programme sellers will also offer a programme and flag bundle for £5!

Flags can also be purchased separately for £1 to help bring colour to the stadium on Red'N'White Night.

PARKING & TRAVEL

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

SCOTT MURRAY'S GUIDE TO ASHTON GATE

SPORTS BAR & PIZZERIA

An extended Fan Village will be in operation from 4pm, with a raft of food and drink outlets, along with live music.

COFFEE SHOP

Please note the Coffee Shop will be closed on Wednesday. An alternative pop-up Coffee Shop will be available from 8am 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.

Club president Marina Dolman will officially be opening the Supporters Club & Trust Bar at 6pm.

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.
