Bristol vs Sharks match moved to a sooner date

Bristol Rugby have announced that their Guinness Premiership home fixture against Sale Sharks, originally scheduled for Sunday April 13th, will now take place on Friday April 11th.

The match will now kick off at the Memorial Stadium at 7:30pm on Friday April 11th as Bristol look to build on the success of their “Friday Night Live” campaign last season as CEO David White explained today:

“Last season we played several matches on a Friday evening and we witnessed some fantastic rugby played in a superb atmosphere under the Memorial Stadium lights. I don’t think people will forget the Gloucester game for a long time for example”

“We’ve been keen to repeat the exercise this season and, thanks to Premier Rugby and Sale Sharks agreeing, we will now play Sale on the Friday evening.”


“Richard (Hill) and the team enjoyed their Friday night rugby last season and we’re hoping that the Memorial Stadium will be packed for another memorable occasion.”
