Early on Thursday morning – around 9am if I’m going to be exact – Bristol City fans discovered the make-up of the fixture list for the Championship season of 2018/19.

No More Reveals – Bristol City’s 2018/19 Fixture List Confirmed

The new away kit for 2018/19 was also finally fully revealed with the new badge after recent twitter teasers.

With the release of the fixtures, season ticket cards also went back on sale.

To finish the day off, we also confirmed that we’d added Shrewsbury Town to our pre-season schedule of warm-up games.

So this is just a mini recap for anyone who happened to be out of the country yesterday, or possibly not on the planet full stop.

In terms of the kit announcement – the following prices apply for the coming year.

Adult shirts are available in small to 5XL sizes, priced £45, with youth sizes from three years to 14 years for £35. Adult shorts (small to 2XL) cost £25, with youth shorts (three years to 14 years) priced £20. Adult socks are £10 and youth sizes just £8.

Special Bristol City mini kits (short, shorts and socks) can be also purchased, from 0-3 months to two-three year sizes, priced £40.

The Robin badge as teased at is exclusive to the away strip, anthem jacket and our training year for the coming season as it nods to our kit of the late 1980’s and all Under 12 season ticket holders can claim a free shirt once they go on general sale on Friday, July 27.

With the addition of Shrewsbury Town, we now welcome them to Ashton Gate on Saturday, July 14 for a 1pm kickoff and a day later we will head off for Marbella for our seven-day warm weather training camp. Shrewsbury should provide an interesting test for Mark Robins’ side as they lost in extra time to Rotherham United in the League One Play-Off Final having had a fine year themselves in the tier below, so it should be a good game to step up preparations for the squad.

The pre-season schedule now reads.

Sunday, July 8th (2pm) v Bitton AFC (A)
Tuesday, July 10th (7.30pm) v Cheltenham Town (N)
Wednesday, July 11th (7.30pm) v Newport County (A)
Saturday, July 14th (1pm) v Shrewsbury Town (H)
Friday, July 27th (7pm) v AFC Bournemouth (H)

Shrewsbury is set to be one of only two home friendlies this summer. Bournemouth are the second.

Whilst some fans were pleased with the developments on Thursday, plenty still seem to be under a cloud at the moment.
