Premier League opponents heading to Ashton Gate

City will host AFC Bournemouth in their final pre-season fixture ahead of the 2018/19 season.

Eddie Howe’s side will travel to Ashton Gate on Friday, July 27th (7pm kick-off), eight days before the Sky Bet Championship campaign gets under way.

It will be five years to the day since the last time City played the Cherries - a 0-0 draw ahead of the 2013/14 campaign.

Speaking of the club’s home pre-season friendly, City head coach Lee Johnson said: “It will be great to test ourselves against Premier League opposition and to show the work we have put in across pre-season.

"It should be a great and exciting game!"

Bournemouth finished 12th in the Premier League last season.

Ticketing information will be released in due course.

City’s pre-season schedule:

  • Sunday, July 8th (2pm) v Bitton AFC (A)
  • Tuesday, July 10th (7.30pm) v Cheltenham Town (N)
  • Wednesday, July 11th (7.30pm) v Newport County (A)
  • Friday, July 27th (7pm) v AFC Bournemouth (H)
