Rail/barrier seating plans for Ashton Gate

Plans are underway to introduce rail/barrier seating in sections of the South Stand at Ashton Gate Stadium from the 2020/21 season.

The club recognises that a number of supporters wish to stand at games and the dedicated rail/barrier area proposed in blocks S25, S26 and S27 aims to enhance the matchday experience, while ensuring fans’ safety is paramount at all times.

The plans would have an impact on some existing Season Card holders, who will receive a letter this week from City Chief Executive Officer Mark Ashton, regarding the proposed changes.

To comply with current safety regulations, supporters will need a reserved seat to ensure that the correct number of supporters are in the designated rail/barrier seating blocks. This is subject to approval from the Safety Advisory Group (SAG).

Barriers will be put in these blocks so if supporters choose to stand, the barriers will give the optimum safety provision. Click here for a full list of FAQs in relation to the proposed rail/barrier seating at Ashton Gate.

City’s Mark Ashton said: “I would like to thank you firstly for your support as a season card holder over the course of the 2019/20 campaign. It’s an incredibly exciting time as we enter the final few months of the season, however work has already begun on planning for 2020/21.

“With details of Season Cards renewals to be published imminently and, as a result of our proposed plans for rail seating, we would kindly ask you to select specific seats when purchasing your Season Card to ensure you can be with friends and family.

“We anticipate these changes to be very popular with supporters who are looking to renew in these blocks, so we would advise selecting your seats as soon as possible.”
