The Rebuild 2014-16

Ashton Gate Stadium, the home of Bristol City and Bristol Bears, has been transformed into a state-of-the-art 27,000 capacity stadium.

The work to rebuild Ashton Gate consisted of three separate phases to the Wedlock, Dolman and Williams Stands, overseen by Bristol Sport. The 86 year-old Wedlock Stand was the first stand to be demolished and was then replaced with the South Stand, featuring new conference facilities, hospitality lounges, administration offices, sports bar, coffee shop and store, alongside a redeveloped Dolman Stand.

Work then shifted to rebuild the Williams Stand, with the rebuilt and renamed Lansdown Stand opened at the beginning of the 2016/17 season.
