Saturday's match will be available on Robins TV only to international subscribers due to EFL regulations. 


As we continue to work through the return of crowds safely for supporters, players and staff, we have introduced the following post-match measures to minimise the risk of spreading Covid-19.

Subject to suitable weather conditions, supporters can hand merchandise to stewards outside the Media Entrance off Ashton Road after the game and it will be placed on tables in a restricted area for the players to sign as they exit the stadium. The merchandise will then be handed back by stewards.

We would kindly ask that supporters do not request autographs inside the stadium, particularly around the tunnel area, while we would request socially-distanced only photographs.


Following the successful introduction of cashless outlets at the stadium towards the end of the 2019/20 season, we will be further extending the operation and going cashless across the stadium. 


Inside the Ashton Gate Stadium concourses, food will be available for cashless purchase from all concessions.


We are now taking bookings for the new Independence Sports Bar.

We are proud to announce a fantastic new relationship with our neighbours at Bristol Beer factory and we have a range of their fantastic draught products for you to enjoy at Ashton Gate.

These brilliant new products can be found throughout the stadium and no more so than in our fabulously rebranded bar.

Alongside the great range of beers, at the Independence Bar you’ll find a refreshed new décor and a great new grill bar menu. 

The menu will have staple classics including burgers and ribs and will include seasonal changes giving you plenty of choice each time you visit the stadium.

As well as securing your table for a pre match meal, you will all also have the added benefit of returning to your table at half-time with the option to pre order your half-time refreshments.

Tables can be booked up to a maximum of 8 people and will require a £10 deposit per person to secure your table which will be deducted from your bill.

Book your table at the Independence Sports Bar


The Bristol Sport Store at Ashton Gate Stadium will be open from 9am-3:30pm.

The fitting rooms will be open in the Store, and will be wiped down after each use.

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’.


As a reminder to Bristol City fans we would like to state that the use of smoke bombs, flares and pyrotechnics is strictly prohibited. Any of our supporters found in possession or setting off a pyrotechnic device (or such methods) will be subject of a minimum three year ban from Ashton Gate and any conviction at court will result in a football banning order for all grounds for three years.

If you see or hear any racist, homophobic or any other abuse around the stadium, please report it to our text line: 07770 736 047.
