At the Rec this Friday

25 January 2017

After securing a European Rugby Challenge Cup home quarter final last Saturday against Pau, Bath Rugby will take on Gloucester Rugby in the third game of the Anglo-Welsh Cup this Friday, kick-off 19:45.

To make the most of your evening at the Rec for this local derby, make sure you check our handy guide below:


Bath Rugby’s mascot Maximus will be roaming around the Rec from 18:45 and during half-time, so make sure you come and say hello!

The Club Shop on Argyle Street and the Mobile Shop in the Supporters’ Village in the West car park will be fully stocked with the latest Bath Rugby merchandise. Take advantage of 15% off all official Bath Rugby training wear and 30% off European Shirts, but be quick as these offers are only available for a limited time only.  


We are looking for three supporters to take part in a ball-catching challenge on the pitch during half-time for the chance to win a pair of tickets to The Clash, which will see Bath take on Leicester at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 8th April. If you wish to take part in this Challenge, please send an email to before Thursday noon. Places will be offered on a first come first served basis.


The usual concessions will be available, including AC Catering with their fan favourite - the ‘Banahan Wrap’ available. Also on hand to tickle your tastebuds will be Dough Pizza, Cau, Get Battered Fish & Chips, Pieminster and Grillstock BBQ.

Happy Hour will be running as usual between 17:45 and 18:45 where there will be £1 off pints of Bath Ales Gem and Thatchers Gold at all bars. The Great Western Wine bar in the Swift Half will also have selected promotions.


Supporters are encouraged to use excellent public transport links in Bath where possible. This includes trains from Bath Spa station, a 10-minute walk from the Rec and the Park & Ride service, which operates from three points on the outskirts of the city.

The Club encourages supporters to cycle to the Rec, where free and secure parking spaces for bikes are offered just next to the William Street Gate.

Tickets are still remaining for this game, so be quick and join this derby fixture by booking online, calling 0844 448 1865, or visiting the Ticket Office on Pulteney Bridge.
