About Bristol City FC


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.


City go into the 2020/21 season looking to learn from the mistakes of the past few years and mount a consistent challenge for promotion to the Premier League.


After impressing in previous campaigns only to fall away in the final few weeks, head coach Dean Holden will be tasked with maintaining high performance and concentration levels for the entirety of what's sure to be a demanding season.


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.
