Bath Rugby Stadium

For years Bath Rugby has needed a new stadium to fit its profile and meet Aviva Premiership standards. However, passions run high over the issue of rugby v culture. Three venues were proposed: the current site at the Recreation Ground, as well as two new sites at Western Riverside East and West.


To gain clarity, B&NES Council commissioned SRA to conduct a comprehensive study around stadium capacity. We worked with numerous Council departments, gaining a rare insight into complex aspects of this historic city. For instance, covenants on the land for the Recreation Ground forbid any one sports club or facility dominating activities there.
