Welcome to the Bristol Rovers FamZone!

Here, you can find all the details you need regarding the family experience with Bristol Rovers FC at The Memorial Stadium.

If you have any questions, or need any further family-related assistance, please contact the Club here. We will ensure to get back to you as soon as possible.

First-time Visit Timeline

For all families who have been looking into coming to The Memorial Stadium for the first time, we have written a rough timeline of the day that you can follow to ensure you have the best possible experience on your first visit!


Secure your tickets

Firstly, you will need to secure tickets for the fixture you intend to come to.

You can browse and purchase tickets to our upcoming fixtures HERE.

We recommend tickets within the MKJ Group Family Stand, or if you desire a terrace experience, we recommend the Cooling FX Terrace.




1pm | Visit the Club Shop

When you get to the stadium, visiting the club shop will provide a great start to your day!

Each matchday we run a kids' competition, which you will be able to ask about in the shop.

Also, you can pick up one of our Kids' Activity Packs, and a colouring page for free. Don’t forget to then purchase some Rovers merchandise to get you into the spirit of the day!


1:20pm | Head to the FanZone

Then, make your way to the FanZone. Although this is not a designated family area, it has a great atmosphere and lots of entertainment for all the family. You will be able to catch some live music, grab a drink and food, or check out the family-friendly Thatchers Bar.


2pm | Head to the Family Area

After this, if you have purchased MKJ Family Stand or Cooling FX Terrace tickets, head to turnstiles 1-8 at the end of the FanZone. From here, you will be able to enter the stadium and head down to the family area.

As well as more food and drinks, there will be various activities, such as face painting and an inflatable goal. You can also meet Captain Gas!

2:50pm | Take your Seats

Both the MKJ Family Stand and Cooling FX Terrace are very close to the family area, and easily accessible, so you should not have many issues in finding your place.

However, if you do become slightly lost, either refer to the map on our matchday guide or ask a steward and they will point you in the right direction.  


3pm | KICK-OFF

Enjoy the game! Up the Gas!


3:45pm | Half-Time

Help yourselves to a snack or half-time refreshments from the family area or FanZone to get you ready for the second-half!


4pm | Second-Half Kick-Off



4:45pm | End of the Match

After you hopefully watch the Gas get a big win, it’ll be time to leave the stadium. Usually, crowds clear quickly, but perhaps wait five to ten minutes if you don’t want to get caught up in a crowd.

Travel safely back home!


Post-Match Feedback

Within a couple of days, you should receive an email asking you to provide some feedback on your matchday experience. We would love to hear what you enjoyed about the day, or anything we can do to improve.


We look forward to hopefully welcoming some new families to The Mem soon!

To help make your matchday even more memorable, we might be able to help arrange first time welcome packs, welcome walk-arounds, programme/scoreboard announcements, autographs and much more! 

Please contact us here with your enquiry and we will endeavour to get back to you.

Captain Gas


Hi everyone! 

I’m Captain Gas, the official mascot of Bristol Rovers Football Club. If I’m not hanging about with the team, or searching for buried treasure, you can find me out and about The Memorial Stadium. On a matchday, I like to hang out with the club’s mascots, as well as all the Gasheads!

I am always meeting loads of new faces in the community, as well as a number of more familiar ones. So, if you see me, don’t be afraid to come over and say hi - I am always more than happy to meet my fans! So come over, give me a high five and show me some of your best dance moves, and maybe we can have a kick about together.

You can follow me on twitter @CaptainGas_ where you can keep up to date with everything I’m getting up to. You can also tweet me there or send in your pictures of us together.
