STADIUM ADDRESS

The Bolt New Lawn

Another Way

Nailsworth

Gloucester

GL6 0FG

ABOUT THE GROUND

The Bolt New Lawn was opened in 2006, as the club moved there from their old stadium, The Lawn, where they had played since the club’s inception. The facility has a capacity of 5,147.

The club have had plans approved for a brand-new stadium, named Eco Park. This ground will be at the cutting edge of renewability, as FGR plan for it to be the world's greenest stadium.

Away supporters are housed in the West Terrace, comprising both covered and uncovered standing areas, as well as a covered seating area. 

ABOUT THE OPPOSITION

The Green currently sit 23rd in Sky Bet League Two with 15 points from their opening 18 games.

Last time out, they shared a 0-0 draw away to Walsall over the weekend, and have not won in the league since October.

After relegation from Sky Bet League One last season, FGR will be looking to climb the table in order to avoid the same fate.

CAR PARKING

There is no general admission parking at the stadium or official parking within the immediate local vicinity.

The only option is on street parking, so it is recommended that you arrive early if you are travelling by car. 

COACHES

Any coaches from visiting teams will be parked on the main road outside The Bolt New Lawn. During the match, there is a temporary traffic restriction order on the main road, so coaches do not have to move once parked.

Away fans are advised to head to coaches at full-time, so drivers have time to vacate the roads within the local area safely.

ENTERTAINMENT AND REFRESHMENTS

Outside the ground: The local village of Nailsworth is just over a mile away and has plenty of food options and independent shops, however, please be aware that not all establishments welcome away football fans.

Inside the ground: A number of kiosks within the away enclosure serve food and drink. Supporters are advised that all products served inside The Bolt New Lawn are vegan. 

GETTING THERE

By public transport: There are very few public transport options. The nearest train station, Stroud, is around five miles away.

While the number 63 bus will get you to the stadium, it stops running at 8.00pm, so will not be able to get you back.

By car: The ground is located in the middle of the M5 and A433.

The A46 is the closest main road to the ground, with signs pointing you in the right direction from there. 

PYROTECHNICS AND BEHAVIOUR

The club would like to remind supporters the possession or use of pyrotechnics inside a football ground is strictly prohibited. Those found to be carrying or using pyrotechnics will face a long-term ban.

We would like to remind supporters it is a criminal offence to enter the pitch at any time. Anyone who does so without permission can expect to face prosecution.

The club outlined its stance on pyrotechnics last season, following incident during our home match against Newport County, and away match at Crewe Alexandra. These statements can be read HERE and HERE

The club would also like to take the opportunity to remind supporters of the zero-tolerance approach towards missile throwing, after an incident in City's home match against Harrogate Town in the Emirates FA Cup last season. 

Bradford City AFC would like to remind supporters that the strongest condemnation is employed towards anti-social behaviour, crowd disorder and misconduct, and illegal activity inside football stadia. 

Our stance on the above will ensure the strongest-possible action continues to be taken against those found guilty of any offence, including the issuing of Football Banning Orders. 

The club reiterated its stance on this following an incident at our recent Bristol Street Motors Trophy game against Manchester City Under-21s. CLICK HERE to read the statement.  

This follows the implementation of the 'Love Football, Protect the Game' initiative reinforced last season, by the EFL, FA and Premier League. For full details, please CLICK HERE

MEMORY LANE

Last time City visited The New Lawn was 12th March 2022.

The Bantams came away with a 2-0 victory, with goals from Callum Cooke and Andy Cook.

City had also earned a 1-1 draw back at Valley Parade earlier that season, taking four points from their two matches against the eventual league winners.

WEATHER

Freezing temperatures are forecast in Gloucester on Tuesday night, with the temperature due to hit 0°C before full-time.
