Bristol Bears' Premiership fixtures revealed

Bristol Bears will mark their return to the Gallagher Premiership with a mouthwatering derby clash to open the competition.

Lam’s men face local rivals Bath at Ashton Gate when the top flight kicks off on Friday, August 31st (7.45pm KO).

Bristol then travel to champions Saracens in Round Two at Allianz Park (Sept 8), before another highly anticipated derby clash on the road versus Gloucester, televised live on BT Sport (Sept 14).

The Bears round off the opening month of the season with back-to-back home fixtures versus Harlequins (Sept 22) and Northampton Saints (w/e of 28/29/30).

Head coach Pat Lam said: “It’s great for us to be in the Gallagher Premiership and everybody is relishing the opportunity to test themselves in a fantastic competition.

“Our vision is to inspire our community through rugby success and we are working tirelessly to achieve this through the way we represent ourselves on and off the field.

“To open the season against Bath – and to come up against Todd [Blackadder], a man I know and respect a huge amount – is really exciting and a major boost for our supporters too. We have no doubt they will fill Ashton Gate and create an incredible atmosphere.”

"Everybody is relishing the opportunity to test themselves in a fantastic competition."

Head coach Pat Lam

Bristol play host to Newcastle in the annual festive fixture in BS3, welcoming the Falcons to Ashton Gate in Round 11 (Dec 30).

The final home fixture of the season takes place in Round 21, as Sale Sharks visit the West Country (May 4).
