If the new store (above) is built Sainsbury's Winterstoke Road store would close
Plans for a Sainsbury's superstore on the site of the Bristol City FC ground have gone on display.
At 9,300 square metres, the store would be larger than Asda at Cribbs Causeway which, when it was built 10 years ago, was the biggest supermarket in Europe.
The football club is looking to sell its Ashton Gate ground to fund a new stadium at nearby Ashton Vale.
It is hoped the new 30,000-seater stadium will be used for World Cup matches in 2018.
Green councillor for the Southville ward of Bristol City Council, Charlie Bolton, said he was concerned by the "sheer size" of the development.
He said: "Couldn't we just have a decent housing development here at Ashton Gate rather than knocking down a superstore and building another just down the road?"
Plans and photographs go on show at the Sainsbury store on Winterstoke Road, Bristol, and at City's Ashton Gate stadium.
The display is open across the weekend and people will be encouraged to have their say on the plans, a store spokesman said.
The football club's plan for the new stadium depends on Bristol City Council granting planning permission for the supermarket.
The sale of Ashton Gate would then allow the club to fund the new ground.
Once built, the current supermarket in Winterstoke Road would close and relocate.
