Supporters of Bristol Rovers Football Club can be found far and wide. Although the majority of the active supporters live in the Greater Bristol region there are clusters of fans across the UK and overseas.
One way in which keen Bristol Rovers fans can keep in touch with other Gasheads is by creating a formal local branch. Sometimes these local groups or networks can then share journeys to home and/or away matches.
Sometimes they can agree to sponsor a match and sometimes they can organise social or fund-raising events such as a skittles or a darts night. Funnily enough, most branch meetings seem to take place in the local hostelry of a region.
If you are interested in setting up a formal branch you could contact the supporters club who will do all they can to assist you. If you live in the area immediately around the Bristol conurbation there are already four active branches you might want to join. The activities that each branch arranges and enjoys are dependent on the interest, location and motivation of their membership.
There are branches in the Gloucester and Severn Vale area, branches in the Norton Radstock and Weston Super Mare area and one branch in the London area. Do have a look at their contact details and either get in touch with them or use the Contact Us form on the website to see if the supporters club committee can be of any assistance in establishing a branch in your region.
