We’ll be launching our revamped sports bar and clubhouse, with live music and Q&As with players and coaches after the game.

In the hugely popular fan village, as well as the regular locally sourced food and drinks stands, we’ll also be welcoming a fish and chip shop, churros and barista coffee and a creperie – with gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options - to Ashton Gate.

Ruby & White returns for the 2018/19 campaign in the fan village, as well as a hog roast.

On Bristol Bears matchdays, the fan village will also include a prosecco bar as we build up to kick-off, as well as a Thatchers  bar and Guinness bar.

Inside the Lansdown Stand concourse, we are delighted to launch the ‘Pint & Whistle’ bar in conjunction with Butcombe.

Also in the Lansdown Stand, supporters can sample premium burgers and beers at the ‘Bear & Robins’ bar.

In the South Stand, known as the Bearpit on rugby matchdays, Chunk Pies will unveil a unique pie and mash concessions stand.

Outside the Atyeo Stand, supporter can enjoy a Heineken bar, BBQ and a DJ playing live before the game to boost the party atmosphere before kick-off.

As part of our commitment to environmental practice, Ashton Gate will once again be producing branded plastic cups, saving on consumables and volume wastage. These will include a return of the popular two-pint plastic cups.
