Bristol City may stay put at redeveloped Ashton Gate

The club will submit plans in the summer to redevelop Ashton Gate into a 26,000-seater, multi-purpose stadium which will be shared with Bristol Rugby Club. The club has struggled to get full approval for a brand new stadium at Ashton Vale.

In a letter on the club's website, the Managing Director John Lansdown says the plans would be deliverable in three years. They include:

  • Completely new stands built where the Wedlock and Williams stands are currently sited
  • Complete renovation of Dolman Stand and improvement of Atyeo Stand
  • New on-site museum of sport, shop and 'Wedlock's Pub'
