Gate Guide: Millwall

City return to Ashton Gate this Saturday for their Sky Bet Championship clash with Millwall (3pm).

Here’s a guide of what to expect if you’re heading to Ashton Gate.


The South Stand, Dolman Stand and Lansdown Stand will be open for home supporters, including the new Family Area in the top tier of the Lansdown Stand.

Millwall supporters will be housed in the Atyeo Stand.


A crowd of 17,500-plus is anticipated, with just over 1,000 Millwall supporters travelling from South London.

The match is pay on the day for home supporters only. To purchase on the day, call Supporter Services between 10am-1pm, or visit the Matchday Ticket Office - adjacent to the Atyeo statue - from 10am.


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

The new Fan Village will be in operation, with a raft of food and drink outlets, while the relaunched Sports Bar & Pizzeria will open its doors to City supporters from 10am. All tables are fully booked, but a takeaway service will be in operation. The Coffee Shop also opens at 10am.

Watch Swansea City v Manchester United before the match in the Sports Bar, while Stoke City v Arsenal will be broadcast after the game.


The Store at Ashton Gate will open from 9am. Home and away kits are in stock.


The new-look matchday programme will be on sale around the ground, as well as from the matchday ticket office and the food and drink concession stands inside the stadium, following feedback from supporters.


A reminder that access to the new 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.


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.
