The Bantams take on Bristol Rovers this afternoon in a Sky Bet League Two clash, with over 400 Bantams making the trip to the West Country.

We have compiled a handy Away Day Guide - packed full of useful information ahead of the 3.00pm contest!


The Memorial Stadium

Filton Avenue



BS7 0BF 


The club moved to The Memorial Stadium in 1996, buying it off owners Bristol Rugby Club just two years later. 

‘The Mem’ was renamed in memoriam to the Rugby Union players of Bristol who were killed in World War One.

It is a very unique ground with a variety of different stands, with City fans offered seating or standing for the clash. 


Bantams fans will be able to pay on the day this afternoon, with tickets available from the main ticket office at The Memorial Stadium.

Ticket prices will remain the same, but only uncovered standing tickets are available, with over 400 Bantams set to make the trip.

Admission prices:

Adults: £19

65+/16-21: £15

Under-16: £10

Under-11: £5

Disabled supporters are asked to pay the above, age-related cost and will be entitled to a free carer ticket.

The stadium car park is only accessible to permit holders, where attendants will direct car parking. Spaces are not available on a match-by-match basis.

With very few exceptions, finding a space within a five to ten-minute walk is relatively easy. Parking on Muller Road is a popular choice, as is Gloucester Road.

If both roads are too busy for parking, there are many other roads across the other side of Gloucester Road. Travel past the Wellington pub along Kellaway Avenue and you'll find another area of roads often used for matchday parking.

Although there is plenty of on-street parking available, please be reminded that it is a predominantly residential area so please ensure that private driveways are not obstructed.


To drink: There is a bar behind the clubhouse terrace at the ground that admits away supporters. 

Not far from the Memorial Stadium on Gloucester Road is the Wellington, owned by Bath Ales, which normally has a mixture of home and away fans on matchdays. 

The King Street Brew House is a city centre pub & microbrewery located on the cobbled street corner of King Street and Welsh Back waterside.

It is handily placed if you are arriving at Bristol Temple Meads railway station or going into the city centre before or after the game. 

The bar has up to 18 different beers on draft, some of which are produced on site.

To eat:

Both the Wellington and King Street Brew House serve food throughout the day, if you wish to eat with a pre-match drink.

Throughout the City there are a wide range of food outlets, with McDonald's and Subway both just a stone's throw from the ground.


By road:

The Memorial Stadium is located on Filton Avenue, just off the Gloucester Road (A38) and is approximately 2 miles from the centre of Bristol.  

Memorial Stadium is well sign-posted with brown and white signs from the main motorway junctions on the M32 (from M4) and M5 (junction 18). 

By rail:

The nearest railway station is Filton Abbey Wood, which is approximately 1.5 miles or a 25-minute walk away from the Memorial Stadium. 

More likely though you will end up at Bristol Parkway which is about two miles away from the ground, with taxi or bus services available to the stadium.

Buses 73/73A/73B run from the railway station to the Memorial Stadium.


The Met Office has predicted a cloudy day, broken up by spates of sunshine - with highs of 10°C expected.
