Bristol City Women at Ashton Gate

Recommended Posts

https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/city-women-open-season-at-ashton-gate/

Strikes me as a good opportunity to develop their fan base.

Tickets are competitively priced, although all kids going free with a paying adult might have been a nice gesture.

But I guess the numbers need to add up somehow.

It's not like our pitch can't cope with the extra games,  even the eztra revenue from a couple of thousand all helps. Does this mean they no longer need a separate place to play at all?

If it's women's football I presume the concourse will only sell women's drinks like Dark Fruits Cider and Lambrini. No chips, either. Maybe some nice light scones though.

Went to 70% of games last season. Along with programme a drink and  a pie as it was free for season ticket holders. now £4 a ticket i wont be bovvering.

Looks like this season they have sold/marketed season tickets for the womens team, so I get the idea if might not sit too comfortably with these fans if people who have bought tickets for the men's team went free, but they could possibly make it a bit more family friendly.

Although it hard to see how they could make it much cheaper, without making it free.

What I dont get is most teams in that league field a women's team. Ten Tottenham and Everton have to cheat by entering a ladies team. It's hardly fair is it.

For anyone who is unsure who she is

What position does she play?

Rather than us turning this in to the usual 'will they swap shirts at the end of the game'? And, 'Cor, would love to know her stats...'

For those who do go and watch the ladies play, what can you tell us about the squad, players to look out for and all that sort of thing.

£4 doesn't exactly break the bank surely?

1 less pint a fortnight?.... oh yeah. Sod it!

Me and my daughter will be going. She's an 11 year old, season ticket holder of 4 years, but got scared at the Swansea game nonsense and has panic attacks now and struggling to get back... could be perfect for her.

Do you reckon we could have ONE topic on women’s football without it turning sexist and misogynistic??

According to some on here the Swansea stuff was just banter and no harm done. Just goes to show doesn’t it. Hope your daughter is ok mate and that the morons don’t put her off.

I remember you mentioning that post Swansea.

All I can say is (and I'm not a parent by the way) talk to her about it and see how she feels. It could be a great experience for her, and a few trips to see the ladies team might just do the trick. I sure hope so, it would be a shame to lose a young fan.

In fairness I get the tribal shit. It's inbuilt from caveman days. No one intends to scar an already anxious child, they get caught up in a moment. It's just gutting for me and her... she'll recover but it'll be months or possibly years... hopefully the former!

Thanks for the kind words.... we've done loads of talking but unfortunately when a panic attack kicks in reasoning is impossible. Leaving is the only option... she'll always be a fan. Hopefully her season ticket won't be wasted!

Or you could save her a lifetime of pain by not taking her again!

It’s a shame. Although things have improved massively in recent years this kind of Neanderthal behaviour still haunts us. I hope she overcomes it. Kids change a lot as they grow older. It’s a shame some old Skool prat’s don’t.......

Yes, if it was on a separate forum per my suggestion last month.

Otherwise no.

Interesting that the Vixens are going to play at the Gate again - but at three o'clock on Saturday it will naturally clash with the many other local games at that time. Surely some girls or their family members will be playing at the same time and so force a decision to be made. But I take this as a sign that the Women's game is ready to carve a niche out for itself - a bold and positive move.

Surely it’s ok for people to think someone’s attractive? Are you telling me no women see any male footballers and think they are attractive?

3pm Saturday is an issue? How is it an issue for those wanting to watch the womens game but not those who want to watch the mens?

I’m pretty sure these male footballers can look after themselves and not have to worry about old women taking a fancy to them.

My daughter plays for Ashton Girls. I'm gonna suggest moving training time and all the girls getting tickets. Great bonding for them too...

Are they playing all the women’s games at Ashton Gate this season or is it just this one? 

My 5 year old daughter has her first season ticket this year and she’s already asked me if there’s a girls team, so I might take her to see the women’s team. 

I always thought they played at SGS? Is that right?

Think this is a one off. Other games will be at the SGS.

One off but I know there was talk of a back to back men's and women's game too... don't know whether it will happen though...

Fantastic move by the club, I've often wished the woman's game would play matches at Ashton Gate.

I've never been to see them play before so will be going to this game and dragging my wife (who absolutely hates football of any gender) and our young daughter.

Come on City!

Girls league is on Sundays. My daughter plays for the same team as Judda's so they'll be able to watch. Saturdays make much more sense than Sundays...

And women can't look after themselves from a reasonably innocent message on an online forum, got it. 

Next time you see someone calling one of the male players attractive or worth the entry price alone I'll expect to see you telling that person the same.

Calm down, that's somebody's son, nothing else.

But your point earlier was men can protect themselves against "old women taking a fancy to them"...

Can these women not protect themselves to "old men taking a fancy to them"?
