Bristol City FC announce supermarket deal

Bristol City FC has signed an agreement with Sainsbury’s Supermarkets in a move that brings a major boost to plans to build a new regional stadium for Bristol. The agreement provides the club with vital funds for the new stadium, subject to Sainsbury’s achieving planning permission for a new store at Ashton Gate that will replace its store at Winterstoke Road.

“This is a huge step forward in the club’s plans. Moving Sainsbury’s across Winterstoke Road will help generate sufficient funds to build the new stadium. Sainsbury’s current site offers exciting opportunities for redevelopment,” said Colin Sexstone, chief executive of Bristol City FC. “We have been listening hard and will now be consulting again with all interested parties. It is imperative that we get this right and we want to work with the community to achieve this. If Bristol is to benefit from a new stadium it is essential that we get best value for the existing site, and the board is unanimous that the agreement with Sainsbury’s delivers this.”

“Although any development isn’t likely to happen until 2013, relocating our existing store across the road to Ashton Gate will mean a new store with better facilities and product range, the existing site will be made available for redevelopment and it will help to provide Bristol with a state-of-the-art stadium,” said Jamie Baker, regional development executive at Sainsbury’s.

The current planning application for the store on Ashton Gate will now be withdrawn. During the next few months Sainsbury’s and the club will be working with the local community as the supermarket draws up plans to relocate to a larger store and redevelop the existing site. This agreement gives a further boost to the new stadium plans that have already been recommended for approval by Bristol City Council (BCC) officers. The plans are due to go to BCC Development Control Committee on 4 November. Construction tenders have recently been issued and having Sainsbury’s on board means that, subject to a positive planning decision, the club will start the 2012/13 season at its new home.
