At the Rec on Matchdays

Matchdays at the Rec bring not only the iconic home of Bath Rugby, but the entire City of Bath to life.

Below are details of what you can expect with us every matchday, but make sure you keep an eye out for our 'Three things you won't want to miss this weekend' features to find out more about special matchday activities for our supporters.

Happy Hour

Happy hour runs every matchday from gates opening for one hour.

You can enjoy a £1 off discount off Bath Ales Gem and Thatchers Gold at all bars, or make your way to the Swift Half and sample some of the selected promotions from the Great Western Wine bar. 

Fan Radios

Want to get closer to the game than ever before? Bath Rugby is proud to announce that this season supporters can be kept as informed as possible with the Premiership Rugby Fan Radios!

With the Fan Radio service you are able to hear the referee or live match commentary, while it also allows access AM/FM radio, has a changeable battery and additional headphone jack to allow for using your own headphones rather than the built-in earpiece if you prefer.

Available for purchase from both the Bath Rugby Shop and the Ticket Office, the radios will be available for only £12 (£10 for Season Ticket Holders).

Bath Rugby Shop

The Club Shop on Argyle Street and the Mobile Unit in the main car park will be packed with all your Bath Rugby merchandise requirements. Grab yourself a bargain in our start-of-season clearance sale, with items starting from just £1! 

Food and Bars

We have the usual array of food and bars available to tickle your tastebuds, including AC Catering, who will have supporters favourite, the ‘Banahan Wrap’, on sale, as well as Clifton Sausage, Get Battered, L J Hugs. 

Pre-Order App

We will once again be running our pre-order and fast-track collection service. Available on Apple and Android devices, the “Bath Rugby Bars” App can be used to pay for beers, soft drinks and crisps ahead of the game and then collected from the Swift Half, North Terrace bars or the West (Gem) Stand bars. Orders can be placed in advance or on arrival at the Rec. The service will operate pre-match and at half-time.

To access the app, simply search “Bath Rugby Bars” in the relevant store for your device, download it, register your details and fast-track your order.
