Bristol City Surfer Flags

Making Bristol City unique for its passion, noise and colour

Vocal positive support can and will return to Ashton Gate, according to some supporters groups and a growing movement online from fans to promote this.

Whilst appreciating that not everyone goes to a football match to sing, bounce, or wave flags, there are some in all stands that would like to be more involved in generating an atmosphere, which is unique to Bristol City Football Club. The manager and players have always said what a big difference this can make.

There is already a growing flag presence, especially in the East End. This has built up gradually with some good collaboration between fans and the club to organise storage, early entry to the ground and meeting safety standards. The flags have all been purchased using voluntary donations.

In addition, “Forza Revolution” has been initiated online to. The idea is to build upon what is already ongoing in the East End and get more fans involvement from other stands to generate a better atmosphere. This has started with a simple, but effective idea, whereby fans bring scarves and signal their support when the team runs out onto the pitch. Other ideas like surfer flags are being looked at, but it is early days yet and agreeing a design would seem to be a good start point for that.

Arguably, some of the best things that come from crowds at football matches are spontaneous; however, some need a bit of thought and organisation, and above all, effort.

Good representations of fans from all areas of the ground are keen to help achieve this. These supporters, in conjunction with the The East End, The Supporters Club & Trust and Forza Revolution are ready to breathe some life into these initiatives.
