Hallen confirmed opponents for Community Match

City will come up against Western League Premier Division side Hallen in the club’s annual community match.

Lee Johnson’s side will visit The Hallen Centre (BS10 7RU) on Saturday, July 6th for a 3pm kick-off and all profits will be equally split between Bristol City Community Trust and the host club.

Community Trust Chief Executive Dan White said: “The club has supported the community match for the past six seasons and for that we are extremely grateful.

“The annual fixture is a great family occasion - it’s a chance for the fans to meet the players and coaching staff and we’d encourage as many supporters to come along as possible.

“We’re delighted to link up with Hallen this year, they’re a great club and all funds raised will be invested back into grassroots football, helping benefit the football provision available throughout the city.”

Hallen FC chairman Lee Fairman said: “We are really excited to be holding the community game this year.

“Four years ago the club (Hallen FC) was in a lot of trouble financially and everyone has worked extremely hard to come this far, so for us, this match is really the icing on the cake.”

The club’s official charity will be at the venue from 12noon, delivering a range of football-fun activities, free of charge, to supporters of all abilities.

Ticket information will be released in due course.
