Over 10,000 City supporters have renewed their season cards for 2016/17 – and there’s still member and general sale to come!
Seats are reserved for current season card holders until midnight on Sunday, and the response from fans has already been impressive to date.
More than half the seats in new West Stand lower tier have been snapped up already, and more than two weeks of the early bird period remain – where the lowest prices are guaranteed!
Andrew Billingham, chief executive of Bristol Sport, said on Bristol Sport TV: "We are delighted with the response that we've had from our early bird season card sales. More than 80% of fans have renewed in the opening 15 days and over half of those have done so online, that’s up from a third last season.
“When you consider we have just under 19,000 seats available in the lower tier of the stadium for home football fans, it is fantastic to think we’ve passed the 10,000 sales mark before we’ve even got to our Forever Bristol members or general sales periods.
“Next season promises to be an historic one with the full opening of this stadium and two teams achieving record crowds.”
There is still time for season card holders to refer a friend for 2016/17, with a £20 gift card on offer as a reward.
Come Monday morning (April 18th), any seats that haven’t been renewed will be released in preparation for member sales or for seat swaps.
The initial season card period guarantees fans the best possible price for the 2016/17 campaign, with adult prices from just £13 per game.
The new age category of Under-25s has proved popular, while last season’s sold out Family Corner at Ashton Gate has been extended by a further 1,000 seats, and for every adult that purchases a season card in this area, an under-12 goes FREE!
The Under-19s price category remains and is available in all areas of the stadium, along with the superb offering for Under-12s of a £50 season card, with a free replica shirt.
Meanwhile, Bristol Rugby are also reporting an increase of 60% in sales in comparison to this time last year.
