The evening saw player sponsors meet and network whilst rubbing shoulders with Bristol City, Bristol City Women, Bristol Bears, Bristol Bears Women and Bristol Flyers players.

There were also photo opportunities for players and their sponsors.

Bristol Sport, Commercial Sales Manager Rich Wigley commented: “Its an important event, not for the businesses but for the players as well.

“I think that the players really appreciate the season long support they get from the businesses. These businesses then get matchday experiences, programme exposure as well as an online presence. This sponsorship is something that is unrivalled compared to other local media sponsorships and from the players they get to mingle with the sponsors and the sponsors get to have photos with their favourite players which is a great opportunity.
