City launch Pledgeball on Earth Day

Bristol City has actively marked Earth Day (Thursday, April 22nd) by becoming the first professional football club in the world to partner with Pledgeball and mobilise football fans into change to help preserve our planet.

Bristol-based Pledgeball encourages supporters to make sustainable lifestyle pledges in support of their team.    

For each City and City Women’s fixture, starting with the games against Luton Town (Sunday, April 25th) and Aston Villa (Saturday, April 24th), Robins’ fans will face the opposition’s fans in a ‘Pledge Off’.

The amount of carbon emissions pledged to be saved by City fans will determine whether the Robins win the ‘Pledge Off’, as well as determining their standing in the Pledgeball League.

Every City fixture can be found here and fans can select the pledges they wish to carry out – from using recycled toilet paper to cycling rather than using a car – and see what impact they will have alongside their fellow fans.

Robins fans have a huge amount of power to bring about change. For eample:

  • One Ashton Gate’s worth of fans washing clothes at 30 degrees saves the same amount of emissions as taking over 1,000 cars off the road
  • Robins’ Twitter followers switching to using reusable cups equates to taking more than 4,800 cars off the road

Katie Cross, Founder of Pledgeball, said: “Thank you to Bristol City for being our first Championship club signing. This is particularly exciting for me, as a Bristol resident - and proud member of Bristol’s Misfits WFC.

“This wave of change will really start gaining momentum with the Robins’ involvement, and will give them early gains in the Pledgeball League!. I am very excited to see the impact that City’s fanbase have.”
