The Store at Ashton Gate will open from 9am.

WORLD CUP SCREENING

Fans will be able to watch England battle it out for the third-place play-off with Belgium at Ashton Gate’s World Cup Fan Village, following the immediate conclusion of Saturday’s game.

Gareth Southgate’s Lions went within touching distance of Sunday’s final, only to lose 2-1 in extra time to Croatia in the semi-final.

Saturday’s World Cup Fan Village screening will not be a ticketed event.

The Fan Village has proved incredibly popular, with tens of thousands of fans watching the action on the big screens.

RUCKSACKS

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.
