The Fan Village will be in operation, with a raft of food and drink outlets, while the Sports Bar & Pizzeria will open its doors to supporters from 10am. The Coffee Shop also opens at 10am.

Stay after the Bristol game and enjoy the England vs Argentina clash on largest indoor pub screen in the country, followed by Wales vs Australia. There will also be a Q&A with man of the match in Doughballers.

STORE

The Store at Ashton Gate will open from 9am. Home and away kits are in stock.

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.

As well as the usual selling points, programmes will be available for purchase in S2, S3 and D1 concessions. 

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.
