League 2 Guide: Bristol Rovers

18 March 2014

Bristol Rovers - Memorial Stadium

Ground Name: Memorial Stadium
Capacity: 12,011
Address: Filton Avenue, Horfield, Bristol, BS7 0BF
Tel Number: 0117 909 6648
Nickname: The Pirates
Home Kit Colour: Blue & White

Away supporters are mostly housed in an open terrace on one side of the East (Dribuild) Stand. This area is open to the elements so you will get wet if it rains. Up to 1,100 away supporters can be accommodated in this area. If the weather is poor then it may be a better bet to head for one of the seats that are made available to away fans in the South Stand at one end of the ground.


By car: Exit M5 at junction 16 (Signposted Filton) and join the A38 (South) towards Bristol City Centre. The ground is about five miles down the A38. You will pass the large British Aerospace works and further on, you will pass on your left the Inn on the Green and the Gloucester pubs. You then pass the Wellington pub on your right and continuing along the A38 Gloucester Road, turn left into Filton Avenue. The entrance to the Club car park is the second right down this road.

By train: The nearest railway station is Filton Abbey Wood, which is approximately 1.5 miles or 20-25 minutes walk away from the ground. More likely though you will end up at Bristol Parkway which is about two miles away from the ground and is really too far to walk from, so you are probably best to jump in a taxi or buses 73/73A/73B run from the station past the stadium.


There is a fair amount of street parking around the sides and back of the Wellington pub.
