Bristol Rugby are to Greene King IPA Championship action in a unique double header at Ashton Gate on Saturday (2.30pm KO).

Bristol Rugby face the Exiles at 2.30pm, before Bristol Ladies face Gloucester-Hartpury Women at 4.15pm.

Here’s a guide of what to expect if you’re heading to Ashton Gate.

STADIUM

The South Stand, Dolman Stand and Lansdown Stand will be open for home supporters.

The Atyeo Stand will not be open on rugby matchdays.

Following the men's game, only the Lansdown Stand will be open for the Bristol Ladies clash with Gloucester-Hartpury Women.

TICKETS

A large walk up is expected on Saturday morning, with our biggest crowd of the season anticipated.

The match is pay on the day, with tickets also available online and over the phone. To purchase on the day, call Supporter Services between 10am-12.30pm, or visit the Matchday Ticket Office - adjacent to the Atyeo statue - from 10am.

It's two games for £10, with U12s tickets available for £1.

Please note, the ticket office will close after kick-off of the men's game, so supporters who want to attend the women's game only must buy in advance or buy a ticket online.

CLUBHOUSE

A new post-match area, in the concourse area connected to the Sports Bar, will be open after the final whistle as a place to mingle, as well as meet players and coaches.

MATCHDAY MAGAZINE

The new-look matchday programme will be on sale around the ground, as well as from the matchday ticket office and the food and drink concession stands inside the stadium, following feedback from supporters.

RUCKSACKS

Ashton Gate Stadium asks supporters not to bring large rucksacks on matchdays, following advice from the National Counter Terrorism Office and Avon and Somerset Police.

Fans will still be able to bring smaller handbags into the stadium, although these will be subject to the usual search process.

An Ashton Gate spokesman said: “The searching process will always be subject to change and whilst there is no specific threat to any Sports Ground, we must ensure that we remain vigilant and the message to spectators is to ‘Be Alert not Alarmed’.”

If larger bags are brought to the stadium, they will be subject to a thorough search, with a bag and tag procedure in place.
