Premiership ground to undergo £100m expansion

Ashton Gate, the home to Bristol Bears and Bristol City rugby team, is to get a £100m development.

The centrepiece for the proposed development will be the Ashton Gate Sports and Convention Centre, a 4,000-capacity venue that will become the permanent home for the Bristol Flyers basketball team.

Proposed by Ashton Gate Ltd, the plans also includes additional housing, offices, a multi-storey car park and two hotels, all part of a regeneration of the area.

Chair of Ashton Gate, Martin Griffiths says it has always been their aspiration to develop the area further after successfully redeveloping the stadium in 2016 at a cost of £45m.

“Following the successful transformation of Ashton Gate stadium, it was always the aspiration to develop it further to give our basketball team, the Flyers, a permanent and secure playing home.”
