We are delighted to welcome both supporters and Bristol City XI to The Optima Stadium on Wednesday 26th August, 7:30 PM KO.
Social distancing guidelines must be adhered to at all times whilst inside The Optima Stadium.
Last time the Seagulls hosted the Robins, an eighty-seventh-minute penalty from Owen Howe finished an exciting seven-goal match – completing the 2019/20 pre-season friendlies. Despite the last two goals of the game coming from Weston, a hat-trick from City’s Semenyo on top of an early opener, saw the Seagulls lose 3-4.
Bristol City XI will once again make the half an hour journey, as Weston play their first match this season in front of home fans.
After only one loss, Weston are hoping to continue their winning ways during pre-season on the back of a 2-1 victory away to Slimbridge on Monday evening. The Seagulls have scored 15 goals in five games – with four pre-season matches still to play in September.
There is no admission on the day, pre-purchased tickets only.
There will now be mandatory picture ID checks for all supporters when entering The Optima Stadium to confirm the ticket validity.
