City announce Ola Cabs sleeve sponsorship

City are delighted to announce Ola Cabs have become official sleeve sponsors for the Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round tie against Wolves.

City players will wear their shirts with the Ola Cabs branding this Sunday, with the company currently offering people around the City a free ride.

Supporters can make use of this exclusive offer by entering the code OLASCORE on the 'apply coupon' page before booking your first ride. Plus get your next three rides at 50 per cent off, before midnight on Sunday, March 3rd.

Ola is the world’s third largest ride-hailing app operating in more than 110 cities, including Bristol, and is based across the likes of India, Australia, New Zealand & other parts of the UK, serving over 1 billion rides annually.

Ola successfully launched in the UK in 2018 across South Wales and the South West of England and completing over 150,000 rides across the UK so far - that’s almost 500,000 miles travelled on Ola journeys in the UK in just six months.

Bristol Sport Commercial Manager Rich Wigley said: "The sharing economy is experiencing substantial worldwide growth, so it’s great to see a company such as Ola creating a real stronghold in Bristol, challenging the likes of UBER.

"This partnership is significant not only for Bristol City Football Club and Ola Cabs, but also for the people of Bristol and we hope that our fans can take advantage of Ola’s trusted service and competitive fares."

Managing Director at OLA UK Ben Legg said: "Supporting people and teams in the places where we operate is really important to OLA.

"So whether you’re heading to the game, the pub, or to a friend’s to watch the match, we’re delighted to be part of your journey."

City have already beaten Huddersfield Town and Bolton Wanderers en-route to the last 16 of the FA Cup, with a place in the quarter-finals at stake.

It will be the club’s first appearance in the Fifth Round of the knockout competition since 2001, with 20,000 fans guaranteed for the weekend's clash.
