Bristol City Women are to play at Vanarama National League Bath City’s Twerton Park ground in the forthcoming season.

City Head of Women’s Football Lee Billiard said: “We’re excited about our move to Twerton Park, it allows us to enhance the matchday experience for our players and fans along with opening up the club to a new market.

“When it is safe for our fans to attend games, we hope our Bristol-based supporters follow the club to Twerton Park and we hope bringing top-level women’s football with world-class players to the city of Bath will excite the local community and expand on our current fanbase and partnerships.”

City Manager Tanya Oxtoby added: “This is the next step for us a club as we look to progress both on and off the pitch with Twerton Park providing us with a new matchday environment that will inspire the group to continue their development and excel on the pitch.

“Our games at Ashton Gate Stadium last season saw a fantastic turn out of supporters and we’re delighted that we will have more opportunities to play there throughout the upcoming season and showcase Barclays FAWSL football on the biggest stage.”
