Congratulations to the Bath City FC Community Sports Foundation and its Director, Pete Selwood, on being named Community Club of the Year at the Bath Chronicle Sports Awards 2015 held at Bath Racecourse on 11th November. Deserved recognition for the fantastic work that the Foundation undertakes in the city and surrounding area.
The Big Bath City Bid is pleased to announce that we will be partnering with the club to launch the 1000BC initiative. This will be a supporter-led drive to increase attendances over time to an average of 1000. We continue to work on the process of achieving community ownership, but this is another way we can start to improve things for the club from the bottom up.
We are looking for a team of dedicated supporters to come up with, prioritise and implement ideas that will help the club reach new audiences and increase our profile in the city.
We look forward to hearing everyone's ideas. We've initially identified the following areas as a starting point for discussion:
- A systematic approach to getting posters out in the city
- Targeted campaign for students
- Media liaison with local radio & print media
- Street stalls & fan walk / "march to the match"
If you have ideas but can't commit the time, please feel free to submit them here or via email. We will provide regular updates of which ideas are being worked on and what progress is being made.
This is a great opportunity to help our club and show how community ownership can work in practice. The campaign will likely involve a monthly or bimonthly meeting starting in December. If you are interested in getting involved, please email or submit a form now.
Take advantage of the International Break to kick things off!
With the Premier League resting and none of our international teams playing on Saturday (unless you're Russian or Portuguese), it’s the perfect time to get down to Twerton Park for the visit of second placed Oxford City. Come along and see if City can pick up where we left off in the last home league match that saw an exhilerating 2-0 win over Chelmsford City. Boasting three new signings - including the return of promotion hero Kaid Mohamed - City lined up with an aggressive formation featuring three up front and a renewed sense of verve and adventure. The injection of new blood and tactics paid dividends, delivering one of the most complete performances of the season and a comfortable victory.
So let's get the ball rolling for the new 1000BC campaign by coming to the match and seeing if City can produce another attacking display in this promotion hunt match-up.
We look forward to seeing you there!
