Corporate Sporting Party

Ashton Gate Stadium, May 2017

An iconic sight in Bristol’s skyline, this corporate sporting party took over the home of Bristol City FC and Bristol Rugby Club at Ashton Gate Stadium.

A highly competitive intra business football match saw multiple teams battling it out in some brilliantly fun matches. Cheered on by their colleagues, the friendly rivalry ran high as we provided a variety of branded clothes and supporter wear in their team colours. Filling the stadium with rapturous cheering and sportsmanlike enthusiasm, this corporate summer party was hugely original and a brilliant way to get members of opposing sides of the business to work together.

Following the games, players and fans combined for a celebratory festival and ice cold refreshment – we transformed this football filled event into a Glastonbury – style extravaganza.  After leaving the pitch, guests ventured into the concourse where we revealed the festival after party.  A space designed to accommodate thousands, we used a variety of coloured draping and lighting effects  Renowned for it’s large, spacious venue we wanted to reduce the size and enable our festival to feel intimate, with clever use of coloured festival inspired draping and a range of lighting we made this large venue the perfect spot for 300 guests.

Complete with festival themed furniture, incredible backdrops and the perfect festival bar, there was no doubt that this corporate sporting party would last for days. Entertained with rock and roll cover bands and an acoustic guitar set – for that traditional Glastonbury chill out tent moment – we also provided hula-hooping artists,  face painters, glitter artists and fancy dress, ensuring everyone was dressed to their finest festival self. As the celebrations continue, we introduced the surprise headline set as all the festival goers were ushered outside to witness and be wow-ed by the incredible fire and pyro show piece!

We had a great time – and so did our guests! With thanks to JMP UK for the great photos!
