Restrictions demanded by South Wales Police and reportedly against the wishes of both clubs

icon nopolice14 October ~ Bristol City supporters will have bubble restrictions imposed upon them for their match away to Cardiff City on October 26. The arrangements were lifted for the last match between the two but have been reintroduced by South Wales Police, reportedly against the wishes of both clubs. It means that Bristol City fans, who have been given just two weeks’ notice about the measures, will have to meet at a service station outside Cardiff to exchange their vouchers for valid match tickets. With the match live on TV on a Monday night, the Bristol City Supporters Trust have suggested that it will result in a loss of income, support and most importantly freedom of movement for the fans. You can read their full statement here.
