Advance Bristol Sport season cards - Rugby, Bristol City and Flyers BasketballPosted on: 20 Apr 2017
The four teams under the 'Bristol Sport' banner have discounted advanced season cards for sale until 5pm on Friday 21st April 2017. Bristol City (men and women), Bristol Rugby and Bristol Flyers basketball are all on offer for the 2017/2018 seasons.
It's been an up and down season as far as Bristol Sport goes. We all know about the struggles of Bristol Rugby. Their first season back in the Premiership has seen them relegated after a campaign in which they struggled to make any real impact on the league. The signs are looking good for the future though and an immediate return to the top flight will be the stated aim for the 2017/18 season.
Bristol City flattered to deceive in 2016/17. Some great results ensured it never looked likely that they would be relegated to League 1 but a quiet slide down the table sees them 4 points from safety with three games remaining - at time of press - against Barnsley, Brighton and Birmingham. They have the best goal difference of those threatened with relegation and the Birmingham City game at home on the final day could turn out to be a huge match for both.
Bristol City Women had a superb season in 2016 and their second place finish in the Women's Super League 2 saw them promoted to the WSL1 for the 2017 season. The efforts of The Vixens' players was rewarded with England call-ups for some of the squad and there's a real sense of excitement for the start of the season against Reading at home this Saturday 22nd April.
Of 31 games so far in 2016/17, Bristol Flyers Basketball have won 14 and lost 17. The entertainment on offer is something that you need to witness first hand to believe - the speed of the game ensures you're on the edge of your seat for the duration. The season is coming to a close but you can catch them on Saturday 22nd April against Manchester Giants. That will give you a flavour of what to expect next season with your discounted season card.
