On 28 February, Bristol City stunned fans with an out-of-the-blue announcement of some huge increases in season ticket prices. Hardest hit were our fans of the future. For kids in the Lower Lansdown there was no longer to be any concession prices. And buying the cheapest adult ticket instead represented an increase of over 500%. Parents faced an ultimatum: pay up or move out!
The Supporters Club & Trust are somewhat baffled by the timing and pricing strategy for the 2018/19 season tickets. In what appears to be a concerted effort to free up arguably the best and most lucrative seats, the impact has fallen squarely on parents with children under 12 who are facing an increase in price for the child’s seat from £50 currently to £335 next season if they wish to stay where they sit at present, often with other family members and friends.
How to squeeze all the atmosphere and pleasure out of a local derby in one fell swoop. Well done the Heddlu! In my view, Cardiff away as a fixture is now officially dead. Already subjected to a reduced 1,481 ticket allocation, a 12.00 kick-off on a Sunday and no local train service, what else could Bristol City fans expect to make their away day go any better… ?
The Supporters Club & Trust Bar will be open on Sunday for the beamback from City’s match in Cardiff and reservations for seats in the bar to watch the game are now being taken. What’s more you can reserve your seat for free!
The Supporters Club & Trust bar on the first floor of the Sports Bar & Pizzeria at Ashton Gate is opening its doors at half-time and after matches to all City fans. While access before games will remain exclusively for SC&T members, any supporter can now get a drink (and a seat!) in the Supporters Bar at all other times on matchdays. Read More
10 Bristol City supporters who are not considered a risk or involved in football related disorder were surrounded and threatened with force including the use of police dogs, publicly accused of being hooligans by an inspector using a megaphone, detained for over 90 minutes and put back on a train home without being allowed to attend the game they had come to watch. They had all travelled to the game independently, didn’t all know each other and had tickets for the match. Read More
As the season begins to draw to a close, it’s time to cast your vote for our annual end of seasons awards.
The Supporters Club & Trust is delighted to have played the lead role in commissioning the creation of a magnificent, larger-than-life statue to the great John Atyeo at the Winterstoke Road entrance to Ashton Gate.
Following the unveiling of the Atyeo statue at Ashton Gate last autumn and the subsequent addition of several extra rows of names on the plinth, we have received further enquiries asking if it is still possible to have names added.
