Dolman Stand - Seat relocations for Swindon Town

Supporters in the Dolman Stand are reminded that work to extend the roof has now begun and will affect the view of supporters attending Tuesday's sell-out game between Bristol City and Swindon Town.

As revealed earlier this month, the extension of the roof is no longer going to take place in sections as this would require seven large four-metre-squared pillars being put in place to support the roof. That would heavily obscure the views of the whole pitch including the goalmouths. 

Instead, the roof will be built on the ground between the stand and the pitch in coming weeks and lifted into place in one go. This does, however, mean severely restricted views of the near side with the impact increasing the lower down the stand you go. 

Unless you have already contacted the club to relocate, the club will be automatically relocating seats for those supporters in the bottom six rows of Blocks C, D, E and F for the Swindon game. Your season card will not be active for Tuesday's game – instead you will need to collect a match ticket for the new seat either from the Bristol Sport Megastore, or on the day of the game from the Megastore (until 6pm) or from a special Collection Point adjacent to the Dolman Stand turnstiles after 6pm. 

For those supporters in the bottom six rows of Blocks E and F, you will receive a match ticket for the Swindon and Coventry City (April 18th) home fixtures. 

As the roof construction moves towards the Atyeo Stand in coming weeks more seats will be affected. Eventually all Dolman Stand seats and some in Block H of the Atyeo Stand will be affected to varying degrees. 

Supporters in the first six rows of Blocks A and B will not be fully affected for the Swindon match, but will need to contact Supporter Services to relocate before the Coventry  game.

Although we fully understand that spectators wish to see as much of the action as possible, crowd safety is paramount and so we kindly ask that all supporters sit in their allocated seats and do not stand during the game. 

We’d like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience during this essential and complicated part of the development and thank you for your continued understanding.
