Corporate

The Bristol Flyers are a leading professional basketball club competing in Britain’s top tier, the British Basketball League (BBL).

Now entering our 6th season in the country’s top-flight competition, the Flyers have become an established force in British Basketball. The past few years have seen qualification to the BBL play-off semi-finals and a record 6thplaced league finish, all whilst continuing to grow our exposure, fan base and network of partners. Virtually all home games in 2018/19 were a total sell-out, whilst our extensive junior, female and academy programmes continue to grow and develop a basketball community in Bristol.

British Basketball is on the rise and we intend on being a key part of this growth

Our journey now leads us towards a new home for the club, the Ashton Gate Sports & Convention Centre, which is expected to open it’s doors in 2022. This purpose built venue will help propel the Flyers to the next level, with a circa. 3,000 seat capacity and state of the art facilities expected to set the standard for venues of this type in the country. The capacity and flexibility that venue ownership provides is also a pivotal step towards our ultimate aim: becoming an established team in European competitions, such as the Basketball Champions League.  

At this key stage of our journey, there’s never been a better time to join our rapidly increasing network of partners, backing one of the world’s most exhilarating sports and the league’s most forward thinking team. Whether joining the crowd at a sell-out home game, sponsoring a player or game, or emblazoning your brand onto the Flyers playing kit, there are a host of ways to get involved. We pride ourselves on being able to meet the business needs of our sponsors and our strength lies in the bespoke nature of our partnerships. Whilst we have a set portfolio of opportunities, we will always create something completely tailored to your budget, brand and objectives.
