City take on Plymouth Argyle in the Carabao Cup first round at Ashton Gate this evening (7.45pm).
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. However, due to low sales, the Family Area in the top tier of the Lansdown Stand will be closed for this game only.
Plymouth supporters will be housed in the Atyeo Stand.
A crowd of 7,000-plus is anticipated, with just around 1,700 Plymouth supporters travelling from Devon.
The match is pay on the day for home supporters only. To purchase on the day, call Supporter Services before 5pm, or visit the Matchday Ticket Office - adjacent to the Atyeo statue - from 5pm onwards.
The match is all-ticket for visiting supporters. However, Plymouth fans can call Ashton Gate on 0117 963 0600 to purchase tickets until 5pm tonight (and collect their ticket on the night).
PARKING & TRAVEL
First Buses will NOT be running for this fixture.
SPORTS BAR & PIZZERIA
The new Fan Village will be in operation, with a raft of food and drink outlets, while the relaunched Sports Bar & Pizzeria will also be open.
The Store at Ashton Gate will open from 9am. Remember, very limited stocks of the new home shirts are currently available.
SUPPORTERS CLUB & TRUST BAR
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.
