Bristol Bears' 2018/19 Gallagher Premiership fixtures revealed PLUS get Â£5 off your opening game ticket by becoming a member today!Posted on: 11 Jul 2018
When Bristol Rugby were relegated to the Greene King Championship at the end of the 2016/17 season, everyone involved with the club knew that nothing less than immediate promotion would be acceptable the following season. The squad delivered, losing just one game on their way to the 2017/18 Championship title, sealing their return to the Premiership. See below for a full rundown of the new-look Bristol Bears' 2018/19 fixtures, as well as details on how to get £5 off your ticket for their opening game against Bath Rugby on Friday 31st August 2018.
In what will undoubtedly be a difficult return to life in rugby's top division for Bristol, the side will be looking to start the season strongly and will have placed high importance on getting a result on the opening day. Their first challengers are local rivals Bath Rugby, who finished mid-table in the Premiership last season, winning eleven and losing eleven in a forgettable campaign.
The first game of the season will take place on Friday 31st August 2018, and Bristol Bears are offering a very special deal to new club members between now and the beginning of the season - become a member and get £5 off your Bristol Bears vs. Bath Rugby ticket. Tickets for the Bath fixture are on sale now and can be found here via the Bristol Bears' online box office.
Following the match against Bath Rugby, Bristol have been thrown in at the deep end early on with an away fixture against last season's runners-up, Saracens. They will then come up against Gloucester, Harlequins, Northampton and Worcester before facing 2017/18 champions Exeter Chiefs on Sunday 18th November at Ashton Gate Stadium.
