090323 Business Leader

As part of the club's vision to operate a 365-days-a-year business here from the stadium, we are pleased to announce a new partnership with Business Leader.

The partnership will see the company work with the club to promote its facilities for non-matchday events through its outlets, as well as delivering some of its own events here from The Mem.

It will also provide the club with a platform for generating new commercial revenue, whether through sponsorship, advertising or matchday hospitality.

The club's Head of Sales David Bright said: "I am pleased to be working with the team from Business Leader. I went to their awards evening last year and was really impressed with the calibre of clients they were working with. If we want to be operating events here at the stadium outside of matchdays, we need to make sure that everyone knows we are here and knows what we have to offer.

"This partnership will help us grow in this area. The fact that they will also commit to holding some of their own events with us shows the type of venue we have become, based on the work we’ve put in over the summer. The new Seat Unique Suite isn’t just about matchday revenue; it’s giving us a space for parties, dinners and conference and events business. We look forward to doing more in this space in the years to come."

Oli Ballard, a Director at Business Leader, said: "I have continually been impressed by the vision of David and his team at Bristol Rovers and there is a clear appetite to engage with businesses across the region.

"They are continually investing in their corporate and matchday facilities and are ambitious on and off the pitch. The Business Leader team is delighted to have formed this partnership and we will do all we can to showcase the club to our network of business leaders, investors and entrepreneurs."

The company will also be offering support to our existing Partners, Sponsors, Box Holders and 1883 Club members, of which they join as a Silver Member.

We welcome them to the club.
