Flyers extend partnership with UWE Bristol

The University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) and Bristol Sport are delighted to extend their partnership into 2021.

The agreement provides professional development programmes for Bristol Sport staff and athletes, whilst also establishing placement and pathway opportunities for UWE Bristol students. 

As part of the partnership, UWE Bristol have become the proud sponsors of Bears and Flyers official podcasts, while the university will also be supporting City and Bears Women through digital activations and Bristol City FC with branding at Ashton Gate.

Bristol Sport Managing Director Mark Kelly said: “It’s fantastic to see our partnership with UWE Bristol go from strength to strength. We’ve already seen the mutual benefits from the relationship through community engagement and sports outreach across the region.

“We look forward to working closely with UWE Bristol in 2021 as Bristol Sport continues to innovate and offer new opportunities to our commercial partners.”

UWE Bristol Vice-Chancellor Professor Steve West said: “We’re delighted to continue our partnership with Bristol Sport; an organisation we are proud to have worked with for several years. 

“Our values of transforming futures and inspiring people align with the Bristol Sport vision, and the opportunity to work closely on shared community projects, develop students, and to build our reputation as a performance hub for exceptional student athletes, is an exciting prospect.”
