Pre-Season Fixtures and the Fizzy Lager Cup

Pre-Season Fixtures and the Fizzy Lager Cup

Bristol City have arranged a busy summer of away fixtures against lower league opposition. There are hopes to arrange a few home fixtures against higher profile opponents. Given the closeness of some of the games expect Gary Johnson to play his "first and second first teams" in the fixtures, hopefully with some fresh additions to the squad.


Forest Green Rovers (A), The New Lawn, Saturday, July 12th

Yeovil Town (A), Huish Park, Monday, July 21st

Hereford United (A), Edgar Street, Tuesday, July 22nd

Bournemouth (A), Fitness First Stadium, Saturday, July 26th

Cheltenham (A), Whaddon Road, Tuesday, July 29th



The Carling Cup first round draw will take place on Friday, June 13th at 10am - the details will be revealed first on bcfc.co.uk. The draw is split into Northern and Southern sections with teams seeded according to league position. City will be one of the seeded teams and are likely to draw a team from League Two, or a team that finished low down in League One (maybe even our saggy neighbours?


On Monday 16th June the new Championship fixtures are revealed on bcfc.co.uk. at 10am.

We missed the boat with home games because we didn't know what division we would be in until late. Gary Johnson did not want to play a team from the same league. By the time our play off adventure eneded most teams were fully booked. We are looking for top class European opposition to play at home. Watch this space.

I am sure you will crow bar a decent home fixture into the pre season games. I am sure a lot of your fans would like a look at the team for the season ahead.
