Take in a game at Bristol’s Ashton Gate Stadium
Home of the Bristol Bears and Bristol City F.C., the 27,000-capacity Ashton Gate Stadium is the perfect place to watch your team fight for a win against their opponents. Situated a short drive from Bristol city centre, the stadium has been the home stadium of the city’s football team for over 100 years. But it wasn’t until the early 21st century that the city’s rugby team moved permanently to the stadium as well. With renovations completed in 2016, a day out at the stadium is a thoroughly enjoyable experience, and anyone wanting to take in a game should make sure to search StubHub and buy or sell Ashton Gate Stadium tickets today.
Ashton Gate Stadium - an interesting history of rugby
Ashton Gate Stadium has long been known around the UK as a solid rugby ground, ever since the 1908 Home Nations Championship in which England was beaten by Wales 28 points to 18 points. But it wasn’t until the 1999 Rugby World Cup that the international eyes of rugby turned to Ashton Gate Stadium. It was the day the New Zealand All Blacks took on Tonga in Pool 2 of the World Cup. The All Blacks, winners of numerous championships and generally considered one of the best rugby teams in history, easily defeated Tonga 45 points to 9 points. While primarily used for football matches, the renovations made to the stadium between 2014 and 2016 to increase capacity and better the overall facilities also saw the welcoming of the Bristol Bears Rugby Club to the stadium permanently, making rugby a much greater feature of the stadium. If you want to witness any of these matches, make sure you book your Ashton Gate Stadium tickets on StubHub today.
A venue worthy of a rock concert
Alongside its popular football and rugby clubs, the stadium also features numerous concerts, with famous artists such as The Rolling Stones performing in 1982, as well as Bryan Adams in 2002 and Elton John in 2004. With popular sporting events and concerts happening throughout the year, Ashton Gate Stadium can often be very busy and challenging to get to by car.
