There are also convenient bins located around the stadium. Play your part and segregate your waste!

  • Red bins across Ashton Gate are for clean plastic waste only. Please place your empty cups (including self-destruct cups), bottles and other plastic in these
  • White bins will be for non-plastics only. This waste will be segregated off-site and recycled where possible with any non-recyclable materials converted into energy

RUCKSACKS

Ashton Gate Stadium asks supporters not to bring large rucksacks on matchdays, following advice from the National Counter Terrorism Office and Avon and Somerset Police.

Fans will still be able to bring smaller handbags into the stadium, although these will be subject to the usual search process.

An Ashton Gate spokesman said: “The searching process will always be subject to change and whilst there is no specific threat to any Sports Ground, we must ensure that we remain vigilant and the message to spectators is to ‘Be Alert not Alarmed’.”


SAFETY AND SECURITY

As a reminder to Bristol City fans we would like to state that the use of smoke bombs, flares and pyrotechnics is strictly prohibited. Any of our supporters found in possession or setting off a pyrotechnic device (or such methods) will be subject of a minimum three year ban from Ashton Gate and any conviction at court will result in a football banning order for all grounds for three years.

If you see or hear any racist, homophobic or any other abuse around the stadium, please report it to our text line:
