Bristol Rovers have allocated Town supporters a mixture of standing and unreserved seating tickets.
As there is limited seating available for away supporters, seats will be on sale to season ticket holders only until 3pm on Friday 1st December. If any seated tickets remain unsold by that date, they will be released for general sale.
Away tickets are unable to be produced digitally, and so physical tickets must be collected/posted.
Any tickets not collected from the Completely-Suzuki Stadium by 3pm on Friday 8th December will be taken to the Memorial Stadium for collection on the day from the Away Ticket Booth.
The ticket prices for our trip to the Mem are as follows:
Adult - £26
Over-65 - £22
Under 18 - £20
Under 14 - £7
Getting There Directions by Car The Memorial Stadium is located on Filton Avenue, just off the Gloucester Road (A38) and is approximately 2 miles from the centre of Bristol.
The 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).
Petrol Stations There are many petrol stations along Gloucester Road, but if you’re looking for a stop right next to the ground there’s only really one - a garage that lies a few hundred yards down Gloucester Road. There are other ESSO, BP and TEXACO stations further down the road in either direction.
If you’re looking for a good value fill for a long journey home then you’re best bet is one of the major supermarkets. If you’re heading back down Muller Road, the Tesco store near the M32 junction offers petrol at a low price (24 hour) and for those heading back along Gloucester Road, the Walmart ASDA store in Patchway (24 hour) - clearly visible from the M5 - is probably the best value fuel stop you’ll find.
Parking at the Memorial Ground The Memorial Stadium has limited parking. There may be street parking available in the roads close to the stadium, ensuring you adhere to local road signs.
We would encourage all supporters travelling to the ground to use public transport wherever possible.
The Club has 30 disabled bays which are currently fully booked by home season ticket holders. If you wish to be added to the waiting list please contact the Club. The Club provides a handful of parking spaces for our disabled visitors which can be booked via Clare McDonagh (email@example.com) The available numbers vary between matches for both home and away fans depending on anticipated crowd sizes.
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 although this is often more difficult. If Muller Road and Gloucester Road are busy then 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 match day parking. Although there is plenty of on-street parking available, please be reminded that it is a predominately residential area so please ensure that private driveways are not obstructed.
Other Transport Options The Memorial Stadium is located on Filton Avenue, just off the Gloucester Road (A38) and is approximately 2 miles from the centre of Bristol. The only access point to the stadium is from Filton Avenue.
Walking As The Mem has extremely limited parking, we would recommend parking up off Gloucester Road and walking from there, as there are many residential streets with free parking. From Gloucester Road, you can then expect a 7–12 minute walk based upon how far down you park: If Gloucester Road is busy, you can also try Muller Road or Kellaway Avenue, both of which are a 12–15 minute walk to the stadium
By Bus The closest bus stop to the Memorial Stadium is Filton Avenue. All local buses are now wheelchair accessible, and many have low floor access and all recognised assistance animals can travel for free.
By Train The nearest station is Filton Abbey Wood, approximately 1.5 miles from the ground. The most common local station is Bristol Parkway. The Memorial Stadium is in the north of Bristol at just over 2 miles from Bristol’s city centre and slightly further from Bristol Temple Meads, the main railway station.
By Taxi Uber and Private Hire services operate in Bristol, and many are wheelchair accessible and can provide a suitable alternative to the bus or car. The recommended point of drop off is Filton Avenue as this is the only access point to the ground.
Electric Scooters Voi electric scooters are eco-friendly and available from nearby charging points in close proximity to the stadium.
Entering the Stadium (see map on page 11 of the Bristol Rovers’ Guide linked above). For tickets to the Poplar Insulation Terrace 3, enter through turnstiles24-26.
For tickets to the Brunel South Stand enter through turnstiles 27-29.
There will be instructions at each turnstile explaining how to use your E-ticket or Match Ticket to enter the ground from here
Food and Drink The Away Fan Bar is located in a marque close to the Away Turnstiles on the outside of the ground. There are several food outlets.
Pubs in Bristol for Away Fans:
The below text is taken from the excellent Football Ground Guide – the Robins Trust take no responsibility for the recommendations or their accuracy: https://footballgroundguide.com/leagues/england/league-one/memorial-ground-bristol-rovers.html
There is a bar behind the clubhouse terrace at the ground that allows in away supporters. Not far from the Memorial Stadium on Gloucester Road is the Wellington. This pub which is owned by Bath Ales, serves food too and normally has a mix of home and away fans on matchdays. Also on Gloucester Road is a recently opened micropub called the Drapers Arms. Rhys Gwynllyw a visiting Wrexham supporter recommends the Annexe Inn on Seymour Road. Located half mile away from the stadium, this pub along with the Drapers Arms are listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. It is close to the County Cricket Ground, going further along the A38 towards Bristol. After passing an Indian Restaurant called Guru, turn left into Nevil Road and then right at the Sportsman Pub into Seymour Road. Other pubs near to the stadium such as the Queen Vic, the Anchor and the Royal Oak, are best avoided by visiting supporters.
The King Street Brew House in the city centre is also recommended on the Football Ground Guide.
