City pre-season camp in Florida

City will be preparing for the 2019/20 season with a July training camp in Florida, USA.

The Robins will spend nine days in Tampa Bay from July 11th to July 19th.  

The trip will strengthen City’s relationship with the United Soccer League (USL), the largest professional soccer organisation in North America.

City Chief Executive Officer Mark Ashton, who attended the USL Winter Summit in December 2018, said: “As we grow as a football club we want to expand our horizons and build relationships around the world.   

“The USL is the equivalent in the United States and Canada of the English Football League and oversees more than 100 clubs.

“Our relationship will enable us to tap into a huge network of contacts and the training camp will give Lee and his coaching team the best possible preparation for next season.”

USL President Jake Edwards (pictured with Ashton below) said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Bristol City to the US. They are an ambitious club, and we were very impressed by Mark and his team when they presented at our Winter Summit.

“Florida will provide the perfect setting for a pre-season training camp, and we look forward to getting together, exchanging ideas, and finding new, innovative ways to strengthen the bridge between our two organizations.”

Details of matches and any open training session will be communicated to supporters in due course.
