1883 Club

Bristol Rovers Football Club 1883 Club

Local businesses have the opportunity to align their company with Bristol Rovers across a number of areas at the Memorial Stadium and Bristol Rovers website, as part of the 1883 Club.

The new 1883 packages aim to offer local companies the very best in branding, hospitality and networking opportunities. This enables businesses to work at the centre of our club with the local community at its heart.

At a meeting at the Quarters in February, the Head of Sales, David Bright, outlined the new plans for the 1883 Club moving forward from the 2022/23 season. The key objectives in this were to make sure the club established a package that suited every level of business within the membership and something that would give us the opportunity to attract new members to the 1883 Club.

Something the club has worked tirelessly on is utilising this membership as a partnership, with the club regularly working with the businesses involved; to ensure every industry and every service of these mebers are explored. David Fear, the new Head of Facilities, has been analysing the membership contacts list to make sure he contacts industries the club can work with on jobs at the stadium and the Quarters; and he has been amazed by the depth and variety of business to call on. 

Another change is the price of the membership, which has been reduced to £950 + VAT for Bronze, £1900 + VAT for Silver and £2850 + VAT for Gold.

The club has removed the 10 places in hospitality from the package and thus been able to lower the price of each package, having listened to feedback and studied the bookings being placed across the season. 

The above explains where the 1883 Club Hospitality discount derives from. The club has implemented a £20 per person reduction on the pre VAT PP price of hospitality in the Lounge or in the Executive Boxes; offering greater freedom to book the numbers you want for each match.

After the success of the last event we held, the club is already working on securing dates for a club Golf Day, a Fixture Release Day breakfast; and a Summer event taking place at Thatchers HQ. There are also other events the club is in discussions for. 

Please contact the 1883 Club Account Manager, Lucy Husband at lucyhusband@bristolrovers.co.uk, to sign up today.
