Inside the Ashton Gate Stadium concourses, food will be available for cashless purchase from all concessions.

These brilliant new products can be found throughout the stadium and no more so than in our fabulously rebranded Sports Bar.

HEALTH & SAFETY

Current Public Health guidance advises supporters to take a lateral flow test before attending a game to protect themselves and others. Do not attend if this shows a positive result or if you or a family member/bubble show symptoms.

There will be a CPR safety demonstration, led by St John Ambulance, in the Lansdown lower concourse.

SUPPORTERS CLUB

The Supporters Club Gazebo is also in the Fan Park and is located between the Sports Bar main entrance and the Ashton Gate Store. Please visit before or after home matches for all Supporters Club information, away match travel details and payments, or contact the Supporters Club on: admin@brissupportersclub.co.uk.
