Season card numbers soar in BS3

Bristol City now have 15,300 season card holders - an all-time record at Ashton Gate.

Numbers have been boosted by a surge in half-season card sales following a fantastic start to the 2017/18 campaign.

Supporters who have signed up for the remainder of the season have also been rewarded with the opportunity to purchase their seat for the forthcoming Carabao Cup quarter-final tie with Manchester United next month.

In addition, member sales have also enjoyed a huge lift on the back of City's first quarter-final appearance since 1989.

City chief executive officer Mark Ashton told bcfc.co.uk: "We've been delighted with attendances at Ashton Gate and the vocal backing Lee and the players have received.

"It has played a huge part in our excellent results on home soil and, additionally, we know how important season card sales are for football clubs.

"I want to place on record our thanks to the supporters who have signed up for a season card, either way back in the summer or now, via a half-season card.

"We're now seeing record season card numbers, ever-increasing membership sales and home attendances on the rise.

"It certainly shows this club is going in the right direction and progressing as we all want it to.

"However, there is still a long way to go this season, and everyone associated with this football club will continue to work tirelessly to keep the forward momentum going."

CROWDS ON THE UP

City's average attendances in 2016/17 were the largest recorded in BS3 for 38 years following a 25% rise on the previous campaign.

That 2016/17 average of 19,256 is actually being surpassed once again this season, with the average attendance, following the brilliant Severnside derby win over Cardiff City, currently at 19,941.
