Park-n-Ride for Rovers blockbuster
Preparations for Bristol Rovers’ blockbuster visit to The New Lawn on Bank Holiday Monday (1:00pm KO) – in front of the BT Sport cameras – are in full swing.
FGR will be running a Park-n-Ride service from the car park of Nailsworth company Renishaw from 10am and the car park at Nailsworth Primary School will also open to fans.
The Ticket Office will open at 10:30am for the collection of prepaid tickets and the purchase of merchandise. No tickets will be available for purchase on matchday.
Only visiting Bristol Rovers fans will have access to The New Lawn’s on-site pub – The Green Man – open for food and drink from 10:30am* with a maximum capacity of 750, while home fans in the East Stand can have a prematch drink in the Carol Embrey from 10:30am*.
Turnstiles will open at 11am, so home fans can also utilise the Concourse bar and canteen in the East Stand, and the Devils Kitchen bar and canteen in the southern EESI Stand from 11am* (which will serve draught beverages especially for this encounter).
Away turnstiles will also open at 11am, so Gas fans can access the away canteens, although these will not be serving alcohol.
Cars will be double parked at The New Lawn stadium, so supporters’ patience will be appreciated, and with the added presence of BT Sport trucks parking will be at a premium, so fans from both clubs are recommended to utilise the Park-n-Ride.
The Park-n-Ride will run from Renishaw’s car park on the A46 (between Stroud and Nailsworth) and is accessed via the entrance opposite Regency car dealership.
Reinshaw’s car park is only a 5mins trip away from The New Lawn and two coaches will be running every 15mins from 10am in the morning, with the final coach returning from The New Lawn to Renishaw’s car park at 4:30pm.
The cost for the Park-n-Ride will be £4 (CASH ONLY), which is the same for all car parks at FGR games.
Finally, The New Lawn gymnasium will only be open on Bank Holiday Monday between 7am-11am.
