Bristol City will have a new home venue for the 2021/22 FA Women’s Championship season at the Robins High Performance Centre.
The Robins will play their home fixtures at the state-of-the-art facility, located just a couple of miles from Ashton Gate Stadium, which will itself stage a number of key games.
City Women will also train at the Robins HPC on select days throughout the week, whilst also continuing their long-standing partnership with SGS College and utilising the on-site facilities formally occupied by the Academy.
Bristol City Chairman Jon Lansdown told bcfc.co.uk: “As we embark on a rebuilding phase for Bristol City Women in the Championship it’s important that we begin the integration of the women’s programme into our world-class facility at the High Performance Centre.
“The 2021/22 season will see City Women have a Bristol-based home venue for their fixtures, which is vital as we look to reconnect with our fanbase after 18 months of playing behind closed doors.
“Having the men’s, women’s and Academy programmes under one roof is our vision for the club and this is the first step towards sharing best practice from a coaching, medical and athletic performance standpoint.
“SGS College have been an outstanding and long-serving partner to Bristol City and they will continue to be the base for the women’s programme for part of week, alongside the women’s Regional Talent Centre and Academy which are critical as we look to build a core of homegrown talent for the future of the club.”
