Statement: Bristol Rovers Women's FC

As Chairman of Bristol Rovers Women’s FC I incredibly proud to announce that on the back of the clubs recent promotion to the National League, Bristol Rovers Football Club have kindly agreed to take over the management and financing of the women’s team from 2024.


Bristol Rovers Women's FC, (Aka the 'Gas Girls') was formed in the spring of 2019 by Bristol Rovers Community Trust, the clubs official charity, with a focus on community, education, participation and performance.


The ambition for the club was to bridge the gap between amateur and professional football, offer educational opportunities for girls in sport through our education programme, build an inclusive community within the club and work alongside other organisations and charities who represented our values.


I am delighted to say that over the past 5 years we have not only achieved our ambitions but exceeded them.


As well as gaining year on year promotions through the league system, the club has had a much wider positive impact throughout our community. We have engaged with hundreds of young girls from our more deprived communities though free football sessions, offered educational opportunities to females through our BTEC programme and inspired the next generation of female fans at Bristol Rovers.


The business side of the club has also been recognised with awards such as the FA Women’s and Girls Best Community Development Initiative 2019, Her Game Too Hero Award 2021 and the Prestigious Women’s Football Business Award 2023. I am delighted we were also able to support other Bristol charities such as Bristol Pride, Her Game Too, St Pauls Carnival and St Peters Hospice.


None of this would have been possible without the support of our incredible team of volunteers whom I thank greatly.


As the club now moves forward, I would like to personally thank Hussain Al-Saeed, Abdullatif Al-Saeed and Wael Al-Qadi who have agreed take over the club to further support its growth, development and success.
