Bristol United to face UK Armed Forces in charity fixture

Bristol United are set to host the UK Armed Forces in an invitational game at Ashton Gate on Wednesday, November 8th (7.45pm KO).

The charity fixture – in support of the Royal British Legion – will take place in BS3 with tickets on sale now.

Tickets for the unique clash are available for £6 for adults and £2 for U12s, with no concessions for season card holders.

Chief operating officer Mark Tainton said: “Bristol Rugby are proud to support the Armed forces and this fixture promises to be a fantastic occasion, which we’re delighted to host at Ashton Gate.

“We will invite selected combination clubs in the region to nominate players to represent Bristol United for this fixture. Those players who get the opportunity to play at Ashton Gate, alongside some of our full-time contracted players, will wear their respective club’s socks.

“The lead-up to Remembrance Day is an important time for everybody involved in Bristol Rugby. As well as the traditional service at the Memorial Ground gates – in which players and staff will attend - we will also be marking Armistice Day on November 11th when we host Rotherham Titans.”
