RSG Backing Bristol Sport Next Season

Bristol Sport is pleased to announce that Bristol-headquartered recruitment organisation Resource Solutions Group (RSG) has re-affirmed its commitment to the Flyers basketball and City football teams for a second season.

Last season RSG’s support saw Bristol City through their historic double-winning campaign and promotion to the Championship, while Bristol Flyers made a fantastic start to life in the professional British Basketball League (BBL) by making the end-of-season playoffs.

RSG’s backing of both teams not only benefits sport in Bristol, but also their own employees. Many members of RSG’s staff are fans of both teams and are able to attend matches and special events in the sporting calendar through the partnership, which in turn promotes motivation and morale.

Founded in Bristol in 1975, RSG is headquartered in Clifton and has grown from a single recruitment company into a multi-million pound, European-wide network of expert recruitment businesses.

Chief executive Mike Beesley said: “We are very proud to be backing Bristol City and the Flyers for the second year in a row. As a business the relationship works on many levels – first it was amazing to see the hard work and determination of both sides last season and to watch them soar to ever-greater heights.

“Second, to be able to motivate our employees through this sponsorship has created a brilliant atmosphere in our offices.

“We also developed an exciting new partnership with a global supercomputing company through the shirt sponsorship of Bristol City FC, so all-in-all it’s been a brilliant 12 months and we’re looking forward to what the coming season has in store.”

Bristol Sport CEO Andrew Billingham commented: “We value RSG’s involvement enormously. Not just from a sponsorship point of view but also as a fellow Bristol-born business. We want to inspire sport in the city, but we also want to inspire business growth through the power of sport. This year has proved we can do that.

“I’ve been really pleased by the enthusiasm that Mike Beesley and his staff have shown for our teams. I know that many have become City and Flyers fans as a result and have enjoyed the fantastic games we’ve had over the season, not least a trip to Wembley!”

Mike Beesley and Andrew Billingham are pictured alongside City’s Kieran Agard and Flyers captain Greg Streete.

Ashton Gate Stadium is the home of Bristol City FC and Bristol Rugby. Bristol Flyers Basketball play at the SGS Wise Arena in Filton.

Bristol Sport is part of the group of companies owned by Stephen Lansdown and manages Ashton Gate Stadium, which is currently undergoing a £45m rebuild to become a new 27,000-capacity multi-use venue. The £12m South Stand and remodelled Dolman stand will both be open in time for the new football season in August. The full redevelopment will be completed next year when it will also become the largest conference and events venue in the south west of England.
