Bristol Rovers FC - Memorial Stadium

Memorial Stadium Guide

Stadium Info

Bristol Rovers moved into the Memorial Stadium back in 1996 after leaving their previous ground in Eastville. The Current stadium has a cricket pavilion stand which makes it quite different to any other stadium. Opposite the Pavilion, or West Stand, is the East Stand. There is a row of terracing running along the lower level with seating in the upper tier. The Blackthorn Terrace behind the goal is also standing whilst the South Stand opposite is a temporary seating affair much like the builds either side of the West Stand. There has been a proposal for a 35 million refurbishment of the Memorial Stadium for the last 10 years. This would bring the stadium up to an 18,500 all-seater capacity. Definately worth a look before re-development.

Away Fans

Visiting supporters are situated across two areas. A limited number of seating is made available in the South stand but you'll need to arrive early to snap these up. Space for a further 1,100 is available at the south end of the Uplands stand. This is open to the elements and really makes it very difficult for visiting fans to generate any kind of atmosphere. Views are ok but there are a couple of pillars in with the seating in the south stand.

Where To Drink

Recommended pubs and eateries include The Sportsman and Annexe Inn on the corner of Nevil Road and Seymour Road, and the Bristol Fryer on Gloucester Road.


All roads surrounding the ground are free to park in and you should have little trouble finding a space within 5-10 minutes walk. The say you'll need to arrive "a couple of days in advance" if you wish to get a space on Filton Avenue so it's probably best not to waste your time going straight to the ground.
