BBL Comes To Bristol

Bristol Flyers are set to become the city’s first ever top-flight basketball team ahead of the 2014/15 British Basketball League (BBL) campaign.

Since its inception in 2005, the Flyers have developed into one of the largest basketball clubs in the country, built on the core values of commitment, hard work and fun.

In a hugely successful eight years, the team – based at South Gloucestershire and Stroud, Filton College’s WISE Campus - secured promotion to Division One in 2007 and were crowned champions four years later.

Now, with the support of Bristol Sport, the Flyers are focusing on establishing themselves at the highest level of professional basketball in the UK.

It's very exciting for the city of Bristol and basketball as well," coach Andreas Kapoulas explained.

"We're looking at a five-year plan to build a successful BBL franchise. Bristol Sport can enhance our model and produce a franchise that spectators will want to come and watch.

“It’s an exciting time for the Flyers because we’re beginning a new chapter. Our goals are aligned with Bristol Sport, because we want to inspire people across the city to enjoy basketball.”

The Bristol Flyers joined forces with Bristol Sport in June 2013. Bristol Sport is a part of a stable of sports companies owned by Stephen Lansdown and includes Bristol City Football Club, Bristol Rugby Club, Bristol Academy Women’s Football, and DZ Racing.
