Eastville Stadium was built in 1897 and was the home of Bristol Rovers. Rovers played their home games at Eastville (nicknamed 'The Ville') until forced to leave by financial difficulties in 1986. The record attendance was 39,462. Parts of stadium were still in existence a decade after the ground's closure, but these were demolished in 1998 to make way for an IKEA superstore. Built near to a gas holder, Rovers fans now refer to themselves as Gasheads.
