Dolman Stand – Important information

Roof truss to be built in front of stand leading to restricted views.

Supporters in the Dolman Stand are reminded that work to extend the roof has now begun and will affect the view of supporters attending this weekend’s home games for Bristol City and Bristol Rugby. 

As revealed last week, the extension of the roof is no longer going to take place in sections as this would require seven large four-metre-squared pillars being put in place to support the roof. That would heavily obscure the views of the whole pitch.

Instead, the roof will be built on the ground between the stand and the pitch in coming weeks and lifted into place in one go. This does, however, mean severely restricted views of the near side with the impact increasing the lower down the stand you go.

Although we fully understand that spectators wish to see as much of the action as possible, crowd safety is paramount and so we kindly ask that all supporters sit in their allocated seats and do not stand during the game.

We’d like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience during this essential and complicated part of the development and thank you for your continued understanding.

Here’s the important information for fans affected.

BRISTOL CITY FANS 
Unless you have already contacted the club to relocate, the club will be automatically relocating seats for those supporters in the bottom six rows of Blocks E and F. Your season card will not be active for this Saturday’s game – instead you will need to collect a match ticket for the new seat either from the Bristol Sport Megastore (up until midday on the day of the game, or before where possible) and then from a special Collection Point adjacent to the Dolman Stand turnstiles after midday on the day of the game.

For those supporters in the bottom six rows of Blocks E and F, you will receive a match ticket for the Barnsley, Swindon Town (April 7th) and Coventry City (April 18th) home fixtures.

As the roof construction moves towards the Atyeo Stand in coming weeks more seats will be affected. Eventually all Dolman Stand seats and some in Block H of the Atyeo Stand will be affected to varying degrees.

Supporters in the first six rows of Blocks A, B, C and D will not be fully affected this weekend, but will need to contact Supporter Services to relocate before the Swindon game.

BRISTOL RUGBY FANS
Those affected with severely restricted views are those in the bottom six rows of Blocks E and F. On arrival at the stadium, season ticket holders in this area will be relocated by stewards into alternate seats. For this reason, fans are urged to arrive early where possible to avoid missing parts of the game.

As the roof construction moves towards the Atyeo Stand in coming weeks more seats will be affected. Eventually all Dolman Stand seats and some in Block H of the Atyeo Stand will be affected to varying degrees.

Supporters in the first six rows of Blocks A, B, C and D will not be fully affected this weekend, but will need to contact Supporter Services to relocate before the Jersey game on April 17th.
