Supersonic 'trading' with Bristol City cards

Bristol City has launched its own trading cards in a brand-new game supported by supersonic family visitor attraction Aerospace Bristol.

From today (Thursday, March 26th), laminated picture cards of City and City Women players – the first collection to include female players in the UK – will be available in six-card packs purchased online from the Bristol Sport Store.

The Robins’ roll-out of their 32 City and City Women cards will be followed in subsequent weeks by Bristol Bears and Bristol Flyers to form a unique cross-sport trading card collection.

And with the City players rated over six categories - Pace, Dribbling, Shooting/One-on-one, Passing, Defence and Physicality - this game will appeal to fans and collectors, young and old.

So, if you want to know how Famara Diédhiou fares against Andreas Weimann for shooting, how Tomas Kalas’ defence stacks up against Nathan Baker or whether Loren Dykes does Carla Humphrey for pace in the world of trading cards then these are for you.

The collection includes four ‘Wonderkids’ and four ‘Legends’ while Nahki Wells’ card is not contained in the packs but will be available at designated Bristol City events. And, of course, Scrumpy has its own card!

Each pack of cards are priced at £2, with a £2 postage fee applicable per transaction from the Bristol Sport Store. If you buy 10 or more packs, postage will increase to £5 to cover parcel size and purchases of five packs in one order (£10) will receive a free pack.

The cards are manufactured by Blindside Trading Cards - a UK based trading card company, using high quality commercial printers and a complete eco-friendly packaging solution.

Aerospace Bristol is one of the city’s leading visitor attractions, offering a day of supersonic family fun for all ages and Marketing Manager Adam Jones explained why they want to support this trading card game.

“We are thrilled to have partnered with Bristol Sport to launch the trading card game. Like Aerospace Bristol, the trading cards are all about giving families the chance to have fun together,” said Jones.

“Of course, family fun is particularly important at the moment. While our museum is temporarily closed we hope that sports fans of all ages will enjoy this collection and visit Aerospace Bristol together when we return to flight!”
