Ashton Gate will play host to the FA Women's Cup semi final between Bristol Academy and Lincoln Ladies on Sunday, April 28th (kick off 2pm).
Bristol are the nominated home side for the fixture but it has to be played away from their Stoke Gifford Stadium home - and Ashton Gate is the perfect fit.
Bristol City FC's home has already played host to a UEFA Women's Champions League match for Bristol and the 2012 FA Women's Cup final between Birmingham City and Chelsea.
Tickets for the April 28th semi-final will cost £4 for adults and £1 for under-16s, and will be available via 0117 963 0600 and on the day.
Liverpool Ladies and Arsenal Ladies will meet in the other semi final at Anfield, with the final to be played on Sunday, May 26th at Doncaster Rovers' Keepmoat Stadium.
Bristol City FC recently announced sponsorship of Bristol Academy for the 2013 season - and the club has changed their home colours to red starting with their quarter final victory over Everton.
Kevin Smith, commercial director at Bristol City, said: "We're delighted to be able to support the FA in hosting this match, which should attract a lot of local interest - given one of the teams involved - and also nationally, at such an important stage of the competition.
"Hopefully we can generate a similar crowd to Bristol Academy's last match at Ashton Gate in the Champions League, which surpassed the 1,000-mark."
