Currently playing League One football at The Memorial Stadium.


Nicknamed The Pirates, Bristol Rovers Football Club were established in 1883 and currently play in The Sky Bet Football League One, the third tier of English football.


The club plays its home matches at the 12,300 capacity Memorial Stadium, in the Horfield area of Bristol. Having been bought by billionaire Jordanian Waed al-Qadi and his family in 2016, the club are looking to mount a proper push for promotion to the Championship in the coming season after a series of relegations and promotions over the past few years.


Rovers have played in the English football league since 1920, with their best ever finish being in both 1956 and 1959 when they secured sixth place in the second tier of English football, then known as Division Two. 

Having suffered relegation to League Two in 2011 and then into the Conference in 2014, they managed to bounce straight back with two consecutive promotions in 2014/15 and 2015/16 to regain their League One status in 2016/17.


A disappointing relegation in 2021 saw The Gas drop back into the fourth tier of English. However, they did not stay long as manager Joey Barton managed to achieve a stunning final day promotion with a dramatic 7-0 victory over Scunthorpe United on a day when they needed to win by 6 to go up automatically. 


The club finished the 2022/23 season in 17th place, 8 points clear of relegation having secured just one point from their last five fixtures. They'll be looking to secure a much higher finish for the 2023/4 season.
