Atyeo statue fund – Donate and get your name on the plinth!
As you will know, the Supporters Club & Trust is aiming to ‘Raise a statue to Atyeo’ to honour arguably City’s greatest ever player, John Atyeo.
A good number of donors to the statue fund have already taken advantage of a unique opportunity to have their name – or that of a relative or friend – indelibly recorded on the statue plinth for eternity. With the Ashton Gate redevelopment now in full swing, we are pleased to re-open this offer to further fans who would like to play a part in creating Bristol City history.
The pose to be used for the statue has now been chosen by the fans. The final form of the plinth will be decided in consultation with the sculptor, Tom Murphy, and Bristol Sport over the coming months. Meanwhile, the miniature of the statue being shown off by Tom below gives you a good idea of how it’s going to look.
Book of memories
To coincide with the unveiling of the statue we will also be bringing out a further book of fans’ memories (not unlike our ‘City Til I Die‘ book released a couple of years ago). The new book is likely to be a mix of memories of Ashton Gate pre-2014 and feature articles on John Atyeo.
Names on the plinth and in the book
As a donor to the fund, you can get your name – or that of the person you nominate – on the plinth and in the book… plus, in the book, a short message as well.
Ideal present – Certificate too!
If you’re thinking of giving a name on the statue plinth to someone as a present (one that will last a lifetime and more!), not only will the recipient get their name on the plinth and in the book, but also a certificate as a tangible gift to cherish in the meantime (click image to enlarge).
