Bristol Rovers have unveiled plans to renovate the Clubhouse Bar and Club Shop at the Memorial Stadium before the beginning of the next season. According to a statement released on Bristol Rovers official website, the renovation effort is in response to fan survey that was completed last season.

“Supporters indicated that a new clubhouse bar would be important in enhancing their matchday experience. Keeping that in mind, the Club are pleased to announce that the refurbishment of the Clubhouse is well underway,” the club said in the statement released on June 6.

The work, undertaken by Barrs Court Contstruction and Your Electrical, will focus on opening up the space around the bar, installing an island bar in the middle – giving it a vibrant feel with a view of the pitch from all areas of the bar, that will in turn significantly increase the capacity on a matchday, while offering a more efficient service to customers, it added.

As part of the installation of the new bar – an access point from the North Terrace has been included in the plans that will offer supporters an entrance straight into the facility during half-time. The Bristol Room Bar at the end of the clubhouse will remain in place – benefiting from a refurbishment ahead of the new season. The Supporters’ Club bar will now be situated in the Bristol Room bar which will also undergo refurbishment.

On June 8, Bristol Rovers revealed modernization plans for the Club Shop, which will be moved to a new location under the East Stand – adjacent to the current site.

The planned changes to the Club Shop will offer the opportunity to modernise the retail outlet of the Club and enhance the overall retail space with the aim of improving customer experience. In addition, the new location of the shop will enable access to all supporters right up until kick-off, making purchases on a matchday more accessible for all supporters.

The Club Shop will continue to offer the same provisions for supporters as it currently does, with the Shop also acting as a non-matchday ticket office for fans purchasing tickets in person.

The latest changes are part of a series of redevelopments taking place across the Memorial Stadium this summer. The Club will be releasing more information on some of the other updates in due course, across our official channels.
