Bristol Rugby will face Scarlets in a ‘friendly’ on Saturday 19th August, KO 2.30pm.

• Bristol Rugby face Scarlets in the Preseason Friendly
• Fans urged to arrive early; due to parking and expected crowds
• Food stalls and bars open around the ground
• Tickets available online will save time on gate purchasing.
• Car parking available at £5 but limited.

As supporters prepare to come and watch Bristol take the field once again, here’s a simple guide to Clifton Rugby and your Saturday afternoon plans.

Tickets are available online here

We are expecting a significant walk up on the day, so please arrive early to avoid queues. Alternatively, we advise you to buy online until 11am on matchday.

Regular concessions and discount for season ticket holders will apply. The ability to purchase tickets on the day will be available on most entrances into our ground. However once again we stress that you please purchase online to avoid long queues.

You cannot pre-purchase tickets from Clifton Rugby during the weeks leading up to the fixture.

Parking is limited and will come at a cost of £5 per vehicle. Gates open 12:00pm

We have a number of parking facilities including our main carpark, AVIVA sports ground next door to us and the use of surrounding premises, which will all be manned by Clifton Rugby volunteers.

We advise you come early to avoid disappointment with parking. Dependant on the weather we may have to close overspill parking which will be on grass.

Note: Bristol Saracens RFC Carpark is reserved for official use only. Please do not try and park there.

Please use public transport where possible.

By Car
If you plan on travelling by car, please use SatNav BS10 7TB

We are just one mile off junction 17 of the M5 (close to Cribbs Causeway’s The Mall).

By Bus
Bus #1 or Bus #2 are frequent, take about an hour and come within 50m of our gate.

Bus Routes

A taxi from Temple Meads (according Uber) would be around £20 and take 25 minutes.

If you come from Bristol Parkway station…

Bus #19 or Bus #82 (among others) takes you Cribbs Causeway, The Mall

You can change there onto a Bus #1 or Bus #2 (5 mins wait), or walk from The Mall, which would take about 25 mins.

A taxi on the same route (Uber), about 10 mins and about £10.

We have increased the number of outside bars this year that will offer a variety of alcoholic beverages. We have invested in contactless payment systems to speed up bar queues. In addition, soft drinks, hot drinks and water will be on offer.

We have partnered with Spectrum Catering who will provide a number of food outlets throughout the ground where you can purchase a variety of grub.

Our Mini & Junior section we also be hosting a sweet stall for those with a sweet tooth.

We have toilet facilities which are suitable for disabled access. Further to this we will have a raised platform designated for individuals who require seated spectating and/or wheelchair room. Please get in contact with the club should you like to reserve or require more information regarding reserving disabled parking.
