Derby sell-out is new stadium record!

Friday’s Gallagher Premiership opener will be a new stadium attendance RECORD for a sporting event at Ashton Gate.

26,399 spectators are set to flock to BS3 for Bristol Bears’ opening clash of the new campaign against Bath Rugby, with every ticket snapped up for the West Country derby.

The official attendance surpasses the 26,088 that witnessed Bristol City’s famous victory over Manchester United in 2017.

In addition, Ashton Gate also welcomes a record number of hospitality clients, with over 1600 enjoying the matchday experience.

Everybody at the club would like to thank our loyal supporters for their backing and we look forward to hosting Bristol and Bath fans on what should be a spectacular evening on Friday night.

Bristol Bears play host to Sale Sharks in the Gallagher Premiership next up in November and members can take advantage of special offers at Ashton Gate.

Pat Lam’s men face Sale under the floodlights on Friday, November 1st (7.45pm KO) with a special ticket offer for Bears Members who can take advantage of a £10 ticket in the Dolman wings or South Stand.*
