The Memorial Stadium, also commonly known by its previous name of The Memorial Ground, is a sports ground in Bristol, England, dedicated to the memory of the rugby union players of the city killed during World War I. It’s currently the home ground of Bristol Rugby Club.
The stadium was built on an area of land called Buffalo Bill’s Field that was previously occupied by allotments and was opened on 24 September 1921 by G B Britton, the Lord Mayor of Bristol, as a home for Bristol Rugby Club.
Situated on Filton Avenue in Horfield, Bristol, it has developed significantly over the years. By 2005, the Memorial Stadium was hosting Bristol Rugby Club back in the Guinness Premiership. A roof has been added to the Clubhouse Terrace and a temporary stand at the east of the ground has brought capacity up to 11,916.
