Supporters' Charter

As a Club, we are fully committed to providing the best possible matchday experience for our supporters.

Bath Rugby is a club with a proud history of elite rugby played in a competitive but welcoming atmosphere, and we want to build on that to enhance the reputation of the Rec as a class-leading rugby venue.

If we are to achieve this, it is essential that Club and supporters work together. As a Club, we will always seek to deliver not only the best possible standards of rugby, but also the best possible infrastructure and facilities for our supporters.

Most importantly, we are totally committed to sustaining the Rec as a safe, enjoyable, family-friendly venue where players, officials and supporters – both our own and visitors' – feel welcome and respected.

We have developed this charter in association with Bath Rugby Supporters' Club, highlighting some values that we feel all supporters at the Rec can and will share:

  • Supporters should be respectful towards players, officials and members of staff, both of Bath Rugby and our opposition
  • Supporters must always be respectful of their fellow supporters – both those supporting Bath rugby and those supporting the opposition
  • Supporters should strive to maintain rugby's unique ability to place home and away support side-by-side, respecting one another's allegiances 

Supporters should report any anti-social behaviour to the stewards on duty who will do their best to resolve the situation. We have a zero tolerance policy regarding threatening behaviour, incitement or discriminatory comments which may result in ejection from the ground.

Above all, we want Bath Rugby's home at the Rec to have a competitive atmosphere but always to be an enjoyable place to watch good rugby.

If anyone's behaviour inside the ground isn't acceptable, we would like to know. If the matter cannot be dealt with on the day, please contact us at
