One Sporting City launches in Bristol

One Sporting City launches in Bristol

Posted on: 15 Apr 2021

The team have persuaded stars of cricket, football, rugby, hockey, cycling and rowing amongst many other sports to launch the Bristol version of One Sporting City.


One Sporting City involves VIP hosted tournaments and competitions in numerous sports throughout 2021, to raise funds for good causes, including grassroots sports clubs.


The series starts with the first national events, involving the GB Rowers and GB Slalom Canoeists in May 2021 at iconic venues of Henley on Thames and the Olympic White Water Centre, with the first Bristol event in June 2021, an eight-a-side cricket tournament hosted by former England Internationals.

Each event provides sporting rewards (bonus goals, tries, runs etc) to those who fundraise the most for their chosen good cause, through provided auction platforms and donation pages.


GB Rowing Gold Medallist Matt Langridge was looking forward to being part of this unique series having already posted a video message on his Twitter feed. "I am excited by this project and looking forward to a day of coaching and helping propel your firm to victory and help towards crowning you as Bristol champions.”


Events are limited in numbers, with the VIP hosts either coaching your team or playing alongside you, but all events include time set aside for a Q and A to learn from their sporting careers. Each event is outdoors in spacious areas and will follow the Covid-19 protocols of the day.


Further events include, a touch rugby event hosted by Bristol Barbarians RFC in September, Hockey with the GB Hockey Squads and football with premier league legends, plus an equal representation from the blue and red halves of the city.  Further events will be added subject to demand.


The project is looking to add to the £505K raised in donations by the Olympic athlete initiative Legacy 300, which sees participants pay for exclusive experience days themselves and create donations on top.


Those interested in getting involved are invited to visit the One Sporting City website to find out more.
