bath rugby foundation raffle

The brilliant matchday raffle is back to raise much-needed funds for Bath Rugby Foundation. 

The funds we raised together last year have done enormous amounts in helping the team at Bath Rugby Foundation provide for vulnerable and challenged young lives in and around Bath. 

This work has been so effective that Morgan, a participant at Bath Rugby Foundation, was named Premiership Rugby's Outstanding Achiever for the 2023 in the Premiership Rugby Community Awards.

To continue to help make amazing stories like this possible, make sure you find the Foundation's brilliant volunteers wondering around the fan village selling tickets for just £1!

This is your chance to get your hands on fantastic signed Bath Rugby goodies! 



We couldn't keep him away for long! Dave Attwood is back at The Rec, but not as you know him. 

In a change of career following life after his rugby retirement, the Bath Rugby legend will be in the fan village but this time as a vendor. 

One of Dave's passions in life is an Aperol Spritz. 'How is that a passion?' we hear you ask. 

Well, for anyone that knows Dave, which is plenty of our supporters, they know that what Dave possesses in height, he also possesses in love for Aperol! 

Please welcome to The Rec, The Apéro Bar, a new and exciting venture finding home within our Fan Village.

Head to The Apéro Bar and give Attwood's Aperol a try! You may even get a chat with the man himself. 

food & beverage

We've always got plenty of food and beverages on offer. From burgers, to veggie wraps, to coffee, to brownies. There is something for everyone out in the Fan Village.

There'll also be our classic pie and pasty offering from our stadium bars* and Swift Half, along with a new snack offering from Mr Filberts. 

Our Wine, Gin & Fizz bar will be open in the Swift Half for those who prefer the fizz over a pint, and Bath-based The Canned Wine Co will have a new wine available for you to try. 

We've also improved our Click & Collect service, so why not order via the app and and collect your drinks in the new designated Click and & Collect marquee next to the left of the Swift Half! 

*We are unable to serve hot food in any of the East Bars this season, but you can find hot food just a short walk away in either the Swift Half or in Piglet's Pantry in the South East corner. 

get kitted out in the new 2023/24 bath rugby stash! 

Our mobile retail unit will be open for you to get kitted out with your new Bath Rugby kit for 2023/24. 

This season, Castore have come on board as the club's Official Retail Partner, introducing a new take on the classic Blue, Black and White hoops, reviving the fan-favourite yellow jersey, and debuting a red jersey for the club's European competition.

Bath Rugby's Shop will also be open on Argyle Street from 10am where you can go and have a browse. Or even order today and collect from the shop on Saturday ahead of kick-off!

A membership will open you up to exclusive events, discounts, and a family of supporters who all love Bath Rugby just as much as you.
