Matchday programme brought to life exclusively with new City app

The Augmented Reality (AR) function of City's new app will be put to use for the first time tonight.

Fans who buy the matchday programme for tonight's fixture with AFC Bournemouth will be able to use the app's camera feature to experience extra video content.

Look out for the AR logo in the programme and head to the AR mode within the app.

See the match review, backpage teamsheet and poster pages within the programme - which can be purchased for £1 around the ground - for the exclusive content.

Bringing the programme to life

1. Download and open the app (search for Bristol City on the app store).

2. Login with your Single Sign On username and password (the same login you use for the ticketing and retail websites), or create one.

3. Tap the menu icon in the top left and choose ‘AR’ from the options.

4. Tap ‘Activate AR mode’ (you may need to allow the app access to your camera).

5. Hover the camera over any image or page where the AR logo appears.

6. Extra exclusive content will now play within the app, as an overlay on the page in the camera.

The City app, built by Priority SMS, is free and now available to download on Apple and Android devices.

The City app includes a range of new features:

  • ‘Appy Hour’ - timed offers and discounts activated at the tap of a button
  • Breaking news notifications
  • Exclusive competitions and prize draws
  • Exclusive City-camera filters to personalise your photos

The app will also incorporate all of the existing content currently on the club’s official website, such as:

  • News
  • Fixtures and results
  • Match Centre - all the key stats from every City game
  • BCTV video content
  • BCTV+ live video and audio for subscribers
