Ashton Gate Stadium to introduce cashless payments

Bristol City and Bristol Bears fans can expect to see a speedier service at Ashton Gate Stadium as we introduce cashless payments options on matchdays.

Ashton Gate will be introducing a phased rollout on matchday when Bristol Bears take on Stade Francias, Saturday, December 7th.

The rollout aims to improve service times during peak periods on matchdays and shorter service periods such as half-time.

This cashless system will include many concessions throughout the concourses, the Fan Village and hospitality areas.

Head of Venue and Events, Jenny Hutchinson commented; “We are introducing this service across the stadium in order to help reduce queues during peak times. It will also make our operation more secure and will most importantly; help us to deliver the best possible service to all our fans.

“We understand there are supporters who are used to paying with cash at the stadium and so we will continue to offer a provision at a number of kiosks, as part of the phased roll-out. A large proportion of our fans are already paying by card rather than with cash in the stadium, so we are hoping that the transition will be quick and easy for many fans.”

All major contactless credit and debit cards will be accepted as well as mobile, Apple Pay and Google Pay. 

The Ashton Gate coffee Shop, Bristol Sport Store, and the Ticket Office will not be included in the initial phase and will continue to accept cash and card payments.
