City shareholding update

Steve and Maggie Lansdown have re-affirmed their commitment to Bristol City by offering to increase their shareholding in the club.

Pula Sport Limited, the company owned by the Lansdowns, currently owns 97 per cent of the capital of BCFC and offer letters have been sent to the club’s remaining shareholders.
 
The Lansdowns have overseen year on year progression of the Robins on and off the field.

Last season’s 8th place was the highest at Sky Bet Championship level in 11 years; 2016 saw the completion of a £45m investment in redeveloping Ashton Gate Stadium; and work is now underway for the Robins’ new multi-million pound training facility at Failand.
 
Steve Lansdown CBE said: “I have been involved with Bristol City Football Club for over 22 years and, since 2002, when I became Chairman, I have been increasingly responsible for the funding of this great club.
 
“I wish to honour a commitment I made to shareholders at an annual general meeting in the early years, at which I promised to ensure that you received an offer for your shares. As Pula Sport has increased its commitment to the club over the years it is only right that I now honour that commitment."

The Lansdown family believe in pride on and off the pitch

“I hope you are proud of what we have achieved over the years and I recognise that this would not have been possible without your support and investment. I am therefore very pleased to honour my commitment to you and look forward to many enjoyable and successful years ahead as we continue to build Bristol City into a first class football club that we can all be proud of.
 
“It is an exciting time for our club with the new training ground underway and the new developments taking place at Ashton Gate.”

City will have a state-of-the-art new training ground for first team and Academy players

Shareholders will have the option to direct the proceeds of their sale to the Bristol City Robins Foundation (formerly Bristol City Community Trust) and Steve Lansdown added: “The Foundation does an incredible job in our community, making a positive difference through sport and learning. If people do decide to pass on the proceeds of their sale, or indeed a proportion of them, to the Robins Foundation, then I want to sincerely thank them.”
 

Shareholders can direct proceeds to the Bristol City Robins Foundation


The Lansdowns are also keen to acknowledge those who have supported City through the purchase of shares.
 
“I understand that many shareholders hold their shares for sentimental reasons rather than for monetary gain. I would like to recognise and publicly thank these shareholders for their support of the club by creating an honours wall in the stadium,” said Steve Lansdown.
 
All current shareholders have been written to but if you are yet to receive your offer letter or you have any queries, please contact Computershare by telephone on 0370 707 1148.
