Bristol City Football Club - The Robins


Bristol City Football Club, nicknamed The Robins, are currently playing their football in the EFL Championship, the second tier of English football. Their home ground, Ashton Gate Stadium, has recently been rebuilt, giving it a capacity of 27,000.


Founded in 1897, the club achieved their highest league finish of Division One runners-up in 1907 and two years later played in their only major cup final, losing 1-0 to Manchester United in the FA Cup. The club last played in the top flight of English football from 1976 to 1980.


The 2006-07 season saw the club win promotion to the Football League Championship after finishing second in League One. The following season Bristol City narrowly missed out on Premier League football losing to Hull City in the Championship play-off Final. Having been relegated back to League One after the 2012-2013 season when they finished bottom of the table they are now back in the Championship and there's no reason they can't challenge for entry into Premiership football in the 2022-2023 season despite a dismal last couple of years.


The clubs honours include twice being winners of the Football League Trophy in 1986 and 2003, the 1934 Welsh Cup and the 1978 Anglo-Scottish Cup when they defeated St. Mirren.


Bristol City finished the 2022-23 season in 14th place with 15 wins and 14 draws from their 46 fixtures for a total of 59 points. In recent seasons over 70 points has been required to reach the play offs.
