Away fans are housed at one end of the stadium in the Atyeo Stand, where around 4,200 fans can be accommodated. Food available at the stadium includes steak and ale pies, pasties and sausage rolls.


It can be difficult finding somewhere to park near Ashton Gate as many streets now have double yellow lines, while parking at the stadium is for permit holders only.
