Given the shambolic organisation, I suspect this won't happen...

I know a few City fans who came v Bath and are now talking about which game they're going to next.

What precisely was shambolic?

Are you referring to those who missed kick off? Mostly in Atyeo?

Why did they miss the kick off? Because they are too busy drinking and socialising in the Fan Village. Get a drink by all means but get to your seat with time to spare before kick off. You are there for a rugby match, not a booze up.

I sit in S22 and several minutes after kick off, a female Barff fan struggled up the steps, looking for her seat and complaining that there were not enough stewards to show her to her seat. Unbelievable!

Several things contributed to people not getting to their seats on time busses, traffic, even our own supporters not being used to having to allow more time at big attendance games so surly we shouldn’t criticise fans from another club for getting lost in such a big modern stadium. Many may not have traveled outside of their local parks before.



Bristol, like the glass is Blue, Bristol Blue.

I was late to my seat but I didn't go to the fan village. I did witness the whole of the Atyeo stand being forced to enter via two turnstiles though. Two. As I said, I'd sooner stay at home than sit in that part of the stadium again.

It wasn't a sell out as in EVERY seat being sat in

Speaking from the football persepective, many seats are lost for the positioning of additional TV cameras, I noticed a few around the stands last Friday

Then take into account tickets that were not used on the night.
For example it came to light this week that football clubs will announce tickets SOLD rather than ACTUAL people at the game

The football club as an example listed an attendance of:
22,395 Vs Notts Forest, when there was 18,246 actually there, and
19,455 Vs 'Boro, when there was 16,075 actually there

Would expect the same practice happens at the rugby matches too

All season ticket holders are counted whether there or not so - yes - all tickets sold.
