BRISTOL CITY - BRISTOL ROVERS


ClubStadiumFAQReportsLinks
THE BRISTOL DERBY
In Bristol you are either a Robin or a Gas Head. Blue or Red. Memorial or Ashton. There is considerable antipathy between the sides and supporters. Even the issue of oldest club is still a matter of contention, Rovers claim to be the oldest professional club in Bristol, however City have enjoyed league status for longer. City draws their main support from the South of Bristol, Rovers from the East (and North). Over the years City have usually finished higher in the league than Rovers, though neither team has enjoyed huge success.
