Nominations sought for Upfest wall

City are now looking to recognise clubs legends – both footballing and non-footballing – in the Upfest street art mural which has been produced at Ashton Gate.

The three Upfest artists – Voyder, Inkie and Andy Council – have completed their work on the wall in the South East corner of the stadium, under the new singing section.

It follows on from Ashton Gate playing host to the world famous street art and graffiti festival in August.

There are two areas on the mural left vacant, one for players and one for off-the-pitch heroes.

The heritage and history is key to any football club and that’s key to this artwork.

On one side the club will be recognising the players, but – equally as important – it will also be a chance to recognise some unsung heroes who don’t kick a football but have still played a major role for the club over the years.

One side of the wall will feature the signature of every first team player, starting with the current squad.

On the other side, there is a chance for fans to put forward names of supporters who have gone the extra mile, or past employees of the club – but not players, managers or chairmen – who deserve recognition.

Fans can send their nominations to media@bcfc.co.uk, with the subject title Upfest, giving a brief background to their nomination.

The new street art wall is opposite the Wedlocks Bar, which is adorned by the famous original Wedlocks pub sign, can be seen for the first time when City host Burton Albion on Friday.

Plans are also afoot for a rugby equivalent in the South West corner of the stadium, to follow after completion works in that area, including a finished West Stand concourse floor.
