  1. FREE WIFI at Ashton Gate

    No, it's his round tomorrow
  2. Warning : Manchester on Wed - Road Closure

    Nothing really out of the ordinary here, as mentioned the road is always closed after the game. But the police have taken a sensible approach to close the road before the game too
  3. Red'N'White Night

    I have seen the Supporters club and Section 82 mentioned
  4. FREE WIFI at Ashton Gate

    This will no doubt be of interest to many people https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/ashton-gate-introduces-in-bowl-wi-fi/ Free Wi-Fi is now available at Ashton Gate in all areas - starting from the Nottingham Forest game this Saturday. The Wi-Fi at Ashton Gate has been extended to add in-bowl coverage as part of a larger project to improve digital experiences at the stadium. Ashton Gate Stadium has worked with a group of partners led by Bristol’s own Zeetta Networks courtesy of a UK Government grant via Innovate UK. Zeetta’s consortium includes Ruckus Wireless for Wi-Fi equipment, provided and installed by another local company, IP-Performance. Building on this Wi-Fi platform, Ashton Gate’s digital strategy will deliver new applications designed to provide a more immersive, interactive experience for all supporters and visitors over the coming months. Just search for Wi-Fi in the stadium and connect to Ashton Gate Edge Z for free Internet access throughout the bowl and within hospitality and concourse areas. Look out for further announcements about our new features as we bring them online. Help us to improve the service by providing your feedback here, via hello@bristol-sport.co.uk or speak to one of the Wi-Fi Volunteers on the concourses.

    I thought that too, but have been unable to find anything on line
  7. That's one of the "timetabled" trains that runs every night
  8. Sky and BT have have signed a deal to sell their channels on each other's platforms. Under the deal, BT will now supply its sports channels - which show UEFA Champions League and Premier League football - to Sky. In addition, BT will be able to sell Sky's Now TV service - which includes Sky Sports, Sky Cinema and the Sky Atlantic channel - to its customers. The deal comes as the firms face growing competition from online rivals. Marc Allera, the chief executive of BT Consumer, told the BBC that the deal was partly so the firms could join forces against the potential online threat. "A lot of technology companies are coming into the market with vast budgets, and changing the market. We need to ensure our customers get the best choice," he said. He said the deal was a "clear indication" of the importance BT attached to how digital and TV markets were converging, adding the firm would bid fiercely for exclusive content. Bidding is due to begin in the next Premier League football rights auction in February, and digital giants such as Amazon and Facebook could throw their hats in the ring for streaming rights. However, Mr Allera said: "I wouldn't say [the deal with Sky] takes the pressure off at all... we believe in holding exclusive rights." BT has spent more than £3.5bn on Champions League and Premier League football rights since 2012 in an attempt to compete with Sky. Sky boss Jeremy Darroch said: "This is great news for Sky customers who will be able to access all matches on Sky and BT channels from the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and Europa League directly with a single Sky TV subscription." The new services will be available to BT and Sky customers from early 2019. Richard Broughton, research director at media analysts Ampere, called the deal "very unusual" because of the rivalry between the two firms, but said it was a consequence of the rising costs of sports rights. "The new rights are up for renewal very soon and this is a pre-emptive shot from both companies to limit their exposure to damage should they not get key rights and also allow them to be a little less aggressive in their bidding." Michael Hewson, an analyst with CMC Markets, said the BT-Sky deal seemed better for BT than Sky, "given that Sky will take BT's sport content while BT gets Sky's sports, cinema and Sky Atlantic channel, and could even gain more access to content further down the road". The big online firms have been part of a seismic shift in how people access content. On Thursday, Disney announced a deal to buy a large chunk of 21st Century Fox, including its 39% stake in Sky. Media mogul Rupert Murdoch told Sky News he was selling Fox's entertainment assets in part due to the rise of online giants. "[Amazon and Netflix] are growth companies... Amazon, I don't know how much they want to do. They are spending $5bn or $6bn I believe on new programmes, but it's basically to widen the appeal of [Amazon] Prime. "Anyone who joins Prime seems to spend about $3,000 immediately on retail... you know, they are a huge disruptor if you look at what they're doing." He said the new Fox company that remained would have the strength to bid for sports rights, but that all companies could be "threatened by big nonsensical bids from the likes of Facebook".
  9. Network Rail have confirmed that they have postponed their engineering works on Wednesday night that would have meant the last train going South from Parson Street was to be the 22:01 service. In turn GWR have now confirmed that they are running TWO ADDITIONAL trains (one Northbound and one Southbound) to accommodate the expected additional numbers travelling The ADDITIONAL services are: 22:39 from Parson Street to Temple Meads - Normally this train runs back empty out of service from WSM to the Bristol depot, but will be now picking up en route back to Temple Meads 23:43 from Parson Street to WSM / Taunton - Normally this service passes through Parson Street without stopping, but WILL NOW be stopping on Wednesday night The services from Parson Street SOUTHBOUND are now as follows: Thanks should be passed onto all those that put in the effort to make this happen
  10. Members and Non-members?
  11. Reading

    They were given an "initial" allocation of 1504 which they have not yet sold out of Their supporters were moaning about the £32 ticket price on their forum so maybe that is putting some off?
  12. Red'N'White Night

    Personally think if you can wear red to this game you could do it to any game? Time to dig out the scarf I bought before getting on CATS to go to Anfield, it only comes out on special occasions and up to now has a 100% success rate
  13. Villa away Members sale.

    Almost gone
  14. Concourse seating (lack of)

    On the basis that NO clubs appear to have this "seating area" I would say clubs don't want (or even need) to provide seats? There is no seating in the concourse area at Wembley??? The Liverpool area with tables are different as these areas that aren't the actual concourse As for Barnet that place is so small and narrow it's only a couple of paces from the entrance to the pitch The only bar they have is away from the pitch The more I think about it the more I wonder why anyone would actually want to sit down? Before the game there are areas where people can sit (Sports bar / SC&T bar) half time can't imagine anyone would want to walk down to the concourse from their seat just to sit down
