Restrictions Apply For Cardiff City Away

Bristol City fans will be required to collect tickets from a service station en route to Cardiff City for this month’s televised Severnside derby.

The club’s first visit to Cardiff City Stadium since 2013 will take place on Monday, October 26th (7.45pm) in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Disorder in Cardiff two years ago led to extensive discussions between both clubs and the local Police forces. Subsequently the Police have insisted that supporters will be required to collect their match ticket at Cardiff West Services (J33 of the M4) on the night of the match.

Bristol City fully appreciates this will have an impact on the majority of fans, whose only intention is to support their team in a law-abiding manner.  It is the club’s hope that the fixture passes off without incident, meaning these unfortunate restrictions can be lifted once more in the future.

The same procedure will be in place for Cardiff City fans when their team visits Ashton Gate in March 2016.

Tickets will go on sale to season ticket holders first, before Forever Bristol member sales. Any supporters buying during general sale must have a purchase history with the club over the past two seasons.

Supporters will be issued with a match voucher, which can then be exchanged for a match ticket between 6.15pm and 6.45pm at Cardiff West Services ahead of the game, although Cardiff City ticket staff will be on site from 6pm.

Full details about when tickets will go on sale, including prices, will follow next week.
