Beard sponsor Atyeo Stand covering and City Women Academy

Beard Construction will sponsor the Atyeo Stand covering for the remainder of the season and for the 2020/21 campaign.

The award-winning construction company will feature across the stand named after the club’s most iconic player for all league and cup fixtures, when the area is not open to supporters.

And the relationship with the Robins will be further enhanced with Beard becoming the front of shirt sponsors for Bristol City Women’s Academy team.

Beard director Mike Hedges said: "As a family-run firm, we want to play a full part in the communities where we operate. We know how important sport is to the people of Bristol and we are keen to see all Bristol City’s teams succeed.

“The Atyeo Stand is named after the club’s greatest goalscorer and our association with this Robins legend is a source of great pride.

“Our support for Bristol City Women reflects our desire to encourage female participation in football and in sport more widely. Like football, construction is an industry that has in the past been seen as a male preserve. There has been a lot of progress in recent years but we want to do everything we can to continue to break down those boundaries, in sport and in business.”

Bristol Sport Group Head of Commercial Caroline Herbert said: “Beard are the perfect fit for us as a family-run company who are committed to supporting both the infrastructure of Ashton Gate and the promotion of the next generation of City Women players. We are excited about this partnership and what it can deliver.”
