There are a handful of tickets left for this tantilising game against one of our oldest rivals, so make sure you book your seat today online here, over the phone on 0844 448 1865 or in person at the Ticket Office on Pulteney Bridge.

  • We’ll have Happy Hour at all bars between 17.45 and 18.45, where there will be £1 off pints of Bath Ales Gem and Thatchers Gold. The Great Western Wine bar in the Swift Half will also have selected promotions running for the hour.
  • Make sure you’re kitted out for the winter weather - The Club Shop on Argyle Street and Mobile Shop in the Supporters’ Village are both fully-stocked with beanie hats, scarves, coats and much more to keep you warm and dry! They’ll be open until late, and there is a new pop-up shop located under the Gem (West) Stand with a host of Bath Rugby goodies on sale.
  • bmi regional will be in the Supporters’ Village ahead of kick-off handing out some free goodies and giving people the chance to win some free flights so make sure you pay them a visit!

  • Throughout the week, we have been announcing the names of seven lucky winners who have each won a pair of return tickets to one of bmi regional’s seven destinations they fly to direct from Bristol Airport. The winners will be invited onto the pitch at half-time and their destination will be revealed.
