Gas in Exile

The Supporters Club has introduced an option aimed at supporters who cannot regularly attend matches at the Memorial Stadium, meaning they too can make a difference with their contribution to the football club.

‘Gas in Exile’ starts at the share scheme’s silver level, and costs subscribers just £5 a week.

The benefits in the standard scheme include season ticket discounts, free tickets and hospitality at the Memorial Stadium, and while obviously not everyone is joining the share scheme just for the benefits it brings, we have introduced options that are of specific value to those supporters who can’t get to the Mem, but still want to make a difference.

The ‘Gas in Exile’ silver level option includes a free VHS or DVD and ‘Gas in Exile’ shirt, and the highest platinum level includes a signed team shirt and free subscription for official matchday programmes.

In addition, at all levels of the scheme, there are discounts on the purchase of Screen Soccer videos of Rovers matches, particularly useful with the derisory amount of Football League match highlights shown on local and national television!

We do not have a bronze option in this scheme, as postage costs to Rovers supporters outside of the United Kingdom would severely impact on Supporters Club expenses. However, you can join the ‘Gas in Exile’ scheme for just the price of a couple of pints a week, which I hope will be affordable to a lot of people.

We hope the ‘Gas in Exile’ scheme appeals to supporters remote from the Memorial Stadium. We have hundreds of Supporters Club members who are based outside Bristol.

We know some of them manage to get to the Mem for matches, but this will also allow other exiled supporters to make a difference to the football club as well. And it’s a great opportunity for fans who aren’t Supporters Club members to get free membership and join the Supporters Club family.
