Bristol Ladies To Play At Ashton Gate

Bristol Ladies are set to play at Ashton Gate Stadium in a unique double header on Sunday, January 18 2015.

The Ladies will face Richmond in the final clash of the RFU Women’s Premiership campaign (5pm KO).

The fixture will immediately follow Bristol Rugby’s Greene King IPA Championship match against Yorkshire Carnegie (3pm KO), with admission to the ladies game free.

Andrew Billingham, CEO of Bristol Sport said: “It is great that we’ve managed to bring together these two fixtures to provide fans with a fantastic celebration of rugby.

“To mark this occasion as the first time that both Bristol Rugby sides have played at the same ground on the same day, a special edition matchday programme will be produced.”

Bristol Ladies Rugby Manager Heidi Chapman-Mercer said: “We’re delighted to be playing Richmond at Ashton Gate. It’s a significant milestone in the rapid progress that we are making as a club.

“Bristol have a squad of talented players – many of whom are internationals – and we are looking forward to the opportunity to show the quality that we have.”
