Should have posted this a few days ago, but didn't have time.

I'm lucky enough to have enough Access Points for first dibs on these tickets. However, was disappointed to see, as well as specific order of selling blocks (not necessarily a problem for me), the 1st 11 eleven rows were uncovered. As it's December, and could be wet and very cold, decided to telephone the ticket office to ask them would I be likely to get an covered seating ticket, although having 1st chance of booking out of all categories. Leandros, I think it was I spoke to - very helpful, who said he's look out for my order, and make sure I was 'under cover'. Ticket arrived, row 14 - sorted! Together with my free bus ticket, looking forward to a good afternoon/evening out. Have driven there many times in the past, but letting the coach take the strain this time.

(Sorry about smilie in the heading - don't know how to remove it!)

:D

Didn't even look at that. I've got row 12. So could get a little wet, if it rains... :grey:

Free Coach booked too. :)

Even along Coronation Drive?! That's normally the slowest part of the journey!

Really looking forward to this - We have been very good midweek this season. Wins at home against Forest and Reading along with highly credible draws and great away support against Villa and Derby.

Assume no ticket sales on the day/evening as I'm not sure if I can get there in time.

It is saying collection only on the website. Can I arrange to pick this up at Ashton Gate or do they mean from griffin park only. Gonna be peed off if I can't get it from Ashton Gate living in bristol!! Didn't think about this so was in no rush to get a ticket! Doh!

Might be able to make this one now, though no tickets on the day is a bit of a pain. Unexpectedly could be home from work a few days early so happy days :bound:. Though won't know til tomorrow afternoon, so might just have to buy one then take the hit if I cant make it.

Also me being away means I have missed our shocker run and now can bask in the glow of our meteoric rise up the table over the next 6 weeks ;)

Yeah same here! I'm going to call them tomorrow too. I remember I left it late a few years ago and ended up getting the tickets off Mads. However, the club do things a bit more..officially now.

Got my ticket. Spoke to the ticket office and they said that if you don't collect it from griffin park you can collect it from Ashton Gate ticket office.

OK, spoke to the ticket office. If you buy your ticket on line before 2pm and specify collection, if it is not picked up today it will be transported to Bristol City and can be collected at the away end.

Good service.

Anyone got any suggestions for parking??
Going by coach this time, but driven many times by car over the years.

Have normally parked across the main road, go over a level crossing, and plenty of street parking there on an industrial estate (certainly used be ok restrictions wise for football), or there is also a pay car park last time I went there last year (on a Saturday)

Tickets went off sale at 2pm today.

No tickets on sale on the night either.

I'd ask/call the Club first thing in the morning.

I just looked it up, because I was also tempted by a last minute trip... Home end tickets are available on general sale it seems but no away tickets. It's a bit annoying...

Called the ticket office nothing they can do as tickets already sent back. Called Bristol City who said nothing they could do as is all down to the away club. They did say that Bees stopped selling tickets unusually early. Its a shame cos being over from the Philippines I dont get too many chances to go to games and me and my brother were prepared to travel down from Derbyshire. Oh well never had theses issues back when I was a regular away fan :). Proepr gutted but will see you all at Leeds.

City fan here, the past two years we've had massive rebuilding work going on at the ground, so home and away numbers were limited.
Now the work is all finished it amazes me why the club still put these restrictions in place.
I've heard similar stories already this season, from supporters trying to get last minute tickets but unable to do so, then the away end is not even half full.

I've started a topic on our fans forum and copied in our fans liason officer, in the hope he may be able to sort something out for you guys? http://www.otib.co.uk/index.php?/topic/181166-feel-sorry-for-brenford/


Not 100% sure where those collecting tickets need to go, but IF it is the ticket office, this is the far end of the ground to where you are situated tonight.
For those who have been to Ashton Gate for years, this is down near where the old away end was.

Allow plenty of time to park, it is an absolute nightmare and the last minute rush on midweek games is even worse.
There is a "fan village" that has plenty of different outside bars and a stage with live music - away fans have mingled in this area all season, so no problems between fans etc here

Reading this forum I thought our club was rotten to supporters now and want us to go away. I must have misunderstood. Very confusing.

The Cricket club was shut when I tried parking there last week. Try street parking on Silbury Road, free, safe and 10 minutes from the ground.

Go in the home end
