Prepare for a showdown of epic proportions as we renew one of the oldest rivalries in rugby in our first pre-season game.

Games between Bath and near-by opponents Bristol have always been fierce encounters, and despite this being a “friendly”, there is no doubt there will be no love lost between the two sides come kick-off on Saturday 17th August at 15.00.

This is the perfect opportunity to introduce your children to a true rugby derby, with a family ticket costing just £35.

Tickets are £15 for adults and £5 for juniors, with Season Ticket Holders benefiting from the reduced price of just £10 (maximum two per season ticket).

Our last two warm-up games see us revive the Anglo-Welsh boarder battle.

First, we travel to Amlin Challenge Cup opponents Newport Gwent Dragons for an early hit out on Friday 23rd August, kick-off 19.15, before returning home on Friday 30th August to take on Welsh giants the Ospreys at 19.30.

Tickets are priced at £20 per adult, £8 for juniors, and are available to Season Ticket Holders for £15 (maximum two per season ticket).

Book your tickets today and join us for our pre-season games that promise to be anything but friendly! You can book online, by calling the 0844 448 1865 or stopping by the Ticket Office on Pulteney Bridge.

Our pre-season friendlies are the first opportunity for our supporters to see the likes of George Ford, Jonathan Joseph and Leroy Houston in action for the first time in the Blue, Black and White so make sure you grab your tickets today.
