Bristol Flyers have unveiled plans for their own arena.

The Ashton Gate Sports & Convention Centre – a 4000-capacity venue which will provide a permanent home for basketball team.

The £100m privately-financed development includes additional housing, offices, a multi-storey car park along with two hotels, adjacent to Bristol City’s current stadium.

Flyers head coach Andreas Kapoulas said: “This is a tremendous moment for Flyers basketball and one which will secure our long-term future. We’re entering our fifth season in the British Basketball League and we have built our reputation both on and off the court.

“Last season’s sell-out crowds at SGS College have shown us that there is a real appetite for basketball in Bristol and it is wonderful that we can now look forward to playing in a brand new venue in the next few years, which will support our long-term ambitions for domestic and European success.”
