Guide To The Gate: Worcester Warriors

Aviva Premiership rugby returns to Ashton Gate on Boxing Day when Bristol Rugby host Worcester Warriors (3pm KO).

  • Bristol Rugby face Warriors in Round eleven of the competition
  • Fans urged to arrive early; Fan Village open as usual
  • Live music, food stalls and bars open around the stadium
  • Dolman ticket holders encouraged to come to Fan Village

As supporters prepare to pack Ashton Gate, here’s a simple guide to each stand and the stadium.

TICKETING

Over 13,000 tickets have already been sold for the match. We are expecting a significant walk up on the day, so please arrive early to avoid queues. Alternatively, you can buy online until 1pm on matchday.

Supporters can buy a membership for just £20 and receive discounts on matchday tickets here.

The ticket office is located in the Winterstoke Road Fan Village for all matchday ticket sales, collections, along with press and scout ticket collections.

The ticket office is open from 11am.

FAN VILLAGE

In the Fan Village, situated outside the Sports Bar & Grill, will be:

- Three bars
- Quality food stalls
- Thatchers bar
- Live music entertainment

The Sports Bar & Grill is open from 11am.

Ticket holders in the Dolman are encouraged to enjoy the Fan Village pre and post match, while supporters will be able to access the bars outside at half-time.

TRAVEL

Please use public transport where possible.

The new First Bristol bus routes will be in operation, although our service from Bristol Temple Meads is not running for this game.

There is a bike rack in the South-East corner.

Remember, parking is limited around the stadium at Ashton Gate and there are no spaces available on site.

WI-FI

Ashton Gate Stadium has partnered with Bristol University’s Zeetta Networks in a world-first stadia WiFi technology trial.

The trial will initially focus on the South and Dolman concourses and if successful will then be extended throughout the stadium and into the seating areas.

To connect to the network (free of charge) simply join ‘Ashton Gate EdgeZ’ and fill out the short form to get browsing.

(Note: this is not yet available in the West or Atyeo Stands).

LANSDOWN STAND

The Lansdown Stand lower tier and upper tier is open to supporters, accessible via turnstiles 1-15.

As well as toilet facilities, food and drink stands – including a coffee shop - will be open inside the concourse.

Please note, the Lansdown Stand interior, much like the South Stand at the beginning of last season, has not been fully decorated.

Smoking will be in a designated area along the West Stand rear walkway.

SOUTH STAND

The Coffee Shop and store will be open from 10am, with 20% off everything in store.

Home and away replica shirts, ranging from three months to 5XL will be available on sale, while training wear is also in store from Sunday.

In the South-East corner there will be a Real Ale and Pasty Bar.

The smoking area remains unchanged from last season, outside the rear of the stand.
 
DOLMAN STAND

One of the concession stands will again be “drink only”. In addition there will be 14 fast-pour stations.

There will also be a pasty shed and Scrumpy Pig stall, plus a Pulled Pork station just outside the turnstiles.

The smoking area remains unchanged, in the alley behind the stand.

ATYEO STAND

The number of taps in the Atyeo has increased from 8 to 36 as we welcome supporters back for the new season.

In the Atyeo Stand car park there will be the usual burger van and a Lavazza Coffee station, but please walk around to the pedestrianised area behind the Lansdown Stand pre and post match to enjoy the entertainment of the Fan Village.

The smoking area remains unchanged, outside the rear of the stand.

DRINK

The following alcoholic drinks will be available in the stadium:

Thatchers Gold
Thatchers Dry
Thatchers Haze
Butcombe
Fosters
Heineken
Guinness
John Smith’s

In addition, soft drinks, hot drinks and water will be on offer.

Remember, the new discount rates for season card holders is now operation. (20% for dual, 15% for season card PLUS, 10% for season card member, 5% for Forever Bristol members).

Thanks to our matchday sponsors, WSSI, who are proud supporters of the Boxing Day fixture.
