Supporters Club outlet to close
January 8, 2018
The Bristol Rovers Supporters Club has worked tirelessly to contribute to the wellbeing of Bristol Rovers Football Club since it was formed in 1948.
Various selling mechanisms have been engaged over the years, including the operation of a retail shop at 199 Twomile Hill Road, Kingswood. The retail outlet has served supporters and other customers in the Kingswood area by selling season tickets, match tickets and Bristol Rovers FC official merchandise on behalf of the Football Club.
In addition the outlet has been used to take new membership applications, membership renewals and coach bookings for official Supporters Club away travel. In these regards the outlet has duplicated operations at the Bristol Rovers Club Shop at the Memorial Stadium.
However, the cost of running and maintaining the shop far exceeds the revenue generated. With that in mind, tickets and merchandise sales will no longer be offered at Kingswood beyond the present season. The Football Club is bringing about changes that will facilitate all sales at the Memorial Stadium and online.
Therefore the Executive Committee of Bristol Rovers Supporters Club gives notice that the shop operation at Kingswood will close at the end of the present season. The Supporters Club wishes to thank all supporters for their custom over the years and pledges to maintain and improve its services to all members at all times and all suggestions as to how we can move forward and improve our services will be gratefully received.
This statement has been agreed by, and issued jointly, by Bristol Rovers Supporters Club and Bristol Rovers Football Club, who will continue to work together for the benefit of all Bristol Rovers supporters.
