Free tickets available for Saturday's World Cup screening

Ashton Gate will welcome fans on Saturday as the country prepares for the biggest England game in a generation.

The hugely popular fan village has quickly become the place to be to watch England’s World Cup fixtures, with thousands attending the nailbiting round of sixteen victory.

Gareth Southgate’s men face Sweden in the quarter-finals of the competition (3pm KO).

Due to the success of the fan village, this will be a ticket-only free event limited to 5,000 people.

The fan village will be open from 12noon, with food and beverage stalls available, as well as a Pimms tent.**

Tickets can be collected free of charge from the Bristol Sport store Thursday and Friday (opening hours 9am-5pm). Tickets will also be available on Saturday but ONLY from the temporary ticket office from 9am, located at the Ashton Road entrance to the stadium (subject to availability).

Fans under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult when collecting tickets or for admission.

Please note, there is only one entrance into the fan village, via the Ashton Road and Marina Dolman way. Winterstoke Road and Raynes Road entrances are for emergency access and exit only.***

Toilets, refreshments and free drinking water is available from South stand concessions, while there will be a family area in the coffee shop.

Allow plenty of time to pass ticket checks and security searches. Please note, no megaphones or loud hailers are allowed in the fan village. No Rucksacks, holdalls, bum bags, shopping bags, shoulder strap bags or larger bags will be allowed in the Fan Village.

There will be a zero tolerance on poor behaviour and pyrotechnics are strictly prohibited.

*A maximum of four free tickets can be collected at any one time
