Initially there will be a period in which only Forever Bristol Members can purchase tickets, followed by tickets going on general sale. These dates will be shown for each match by clicking ‘More Information’. Season card holders will need to wait until tickets are on general sale to purchase home tickets for any friends, unless those friends are Forever Bristol Members.

SEASON CARD ENQUIRIES

18. I have forgotten my season card for a match. Will I be able to watch the match?
Yes. Match tickets can be printed at the South Stand ticket office for a £5 charge per season card transaction. Tickets will only be reprinted on production of the season card owner’s ID.

19. I have a concession season card.  What happens if I cannot attend a home game?
If you can’t attend a game and wish a friend of the same age category to use your season card you must let the club know (see terms and conditions). If the season card needs to be upgraded, e.g. from an under-12 to an adult, you must contact Supporter Services to pay for the upgrade. The upgrade cost will be calculated as the full price ticket minus the pro-rata rate of the season card. Please be advised that we will need to create a ticketing account for all supporters that wish to attend a game in place of the season card holder.

20. I want to bring a friend to a game and would like to sit with them, can I move my seat for a match?
Yes, each season card holder can move seats up tp three times per season at no additional cost, these can be used to accommodate any guest they want to bring. Seat moves for matches over and above the three free moves will be charged at the rate of a full price ticket, minus the pro-rata price of the season card. To move seats for a particular match you will need to contact the Supporter Services team.

21. During the season I decide I would like to move seats permanently, what do I have to do?
Please contact the Supporter Services team to change seats. Permanent seat transfers made during the season will incur the following fees:
  • Reprint Fee – A £10 fee per season card applies to all season cards which need to be reprinted.
  • Seat Move Admin Fee – A £10 fee will be applied if you decide to change your seat after the one free seat move.
Supporters are entitled to one move per season without incurring a £10 seat move admin fee. If a supporter moves to a more expensive area then their existing seat, they will need to pay the difference in price to upgrade. If supporters choose to move to a cheaper area then the difference will be offered as a refund.  The cost of this upgrade/downgrade will be calculated on the basis of the difference in price between the two seats, on a pro-rata basis depending on how many matches are remaining in the season.

DISABLED ENQUIRIES

22. I am disabled, what price do I pay for match tickets?
Disabled supporters pay the relevant price according to their age and the stand which they choose to sit in. 

23. Am I entitled to bring a Carer/Personal Assistant for free?
Ambulant disabled/wheelchair-using supporters are entitled to bring a carer to a match free of charge, if they have one of the following:
 • Receipt of the medium to high rate Disability Living Allowance (mobility or care component)
 • Enhanced Rate P.I.P (Personal Independence Payment)
 • Receipt of either the Employment & Support Allowance or Attendance Allowance
If you are not in receipt of any of these, we will consider a signed letter from a doctor on headed paper explaining why you require a carer. 

24. Will I be required to show proof?
If you are entitled to a carer free of charge we will need to see proof of one of the above entitlements, which we will attach to your account for future reference. If you send us an award letter, then we will not need to see evidence again until the review date. 

25. How can I purchase tickets?
Ambulant disabled/wheelchair-using supporters need to phone Supporter Services to purchase their tickets.

26. How many wheelchair bay spaces are available at Ashton Gate?
 There are 159 wheelchair accessible spaces at Ashton Gate, and each of these has space for one carer. We have wheelchair areas in all four stands at Ashton Gate and tickets are priced at the rate of the stand they are in. 

27. I have specific accessibility needs, who can I discuss these with?
Our Disability Liaison Officer, Gareth Torpy can be contacted directly via e-mail on gareth.torpy@bristol-sport.co.uk; alternatively you can contact the Supporter Services team.

28. Do the priority sales dates still apply to disabled supporters?
Yes. However, as disabled supporters are currently unable to purchase online, you are able to buy tickets over the phone in the online only sales period.

CAR PARKING ENQUIRIES

29. Can I purchase car parking on a match-by-match basis?
The majority of our parking is sold seasonally. However, if there are any spaces available to purchase match to match these can be purchased at https://tickets.bristol-sport.co.uk or by calling Supporter Services.

30. How do I get parking for the season?
In most seasons our parking is sold out seasonally. Supporters that currently have parking spaces are given the first chance to renew their parking space for the next season. Any unsold parking spaces are offered to supporters at the top of the car park waiting list. You can be added to the car park waiting list by contacting Supporter Services.

31. I would like to move to a different car park, how can I do this?
If you would like to express an interest in moving to a different car park then please let Supporter Services know. However, we recommend that you renew in your current space, in order to secure your parking for the season and if a transfer to your desired car park becomes available then we will be in touch with you to arrange this.

AWAY TICKET ENQUIRIES

32. Am I able to purchase away tickets?
We currently only sell away tickets for Bristol City Football Club.

33. When can I purchase away tickets?
Sales dates for individual games are announced via the website. We aim to put away games on sale approximately four weeks in advance of the fixture, but this is subject to change depending on when the club receive the away ticket allocation. We adhere to strict priority booking process whereby season card PLUS members can purchase first, followed by season card members, Forever Bristol Members and then general sale, should any tickets remain. Season card holders and Forever Bristol members are strictly restricted to purchase one ticket per person within their sales period. Should you want to purchase additional tickets for non-members, you will need to wait until the general sale period. We highly advise multiple tickets are booked within the same transaction so they are all sat together; tickets are issued in an order instructed by the away club and tickets will not be exchanged or returned to accommodate this.

34. Can I upgrade/downgrade an away ticket to a different age category?
We are unable to amend any away tickets and all bookings are final. This includes upgrading/downgrading tickets, adding additional tickets or returning tickets.

36. Who do I speak to if I have a problem on matchday?
There are plenty of stewards at the stadium who will be able to assist.  Alternatively, you can go to the South Stand ticket office where a member of Supporter Services will be able to assist you, prior to kick-off.
