UWE Stadium, Bristol
The proposed ‘UWE Stadium’ will be equipped with state of the art facilities, including; a large supporter’s club bar, an extensive club shop, banqueting and hospitality suite, retail store, crèche, gym, jogging track and approximately 19,000sq ft of potential teaching space for the University.
Social networking is definitely the way forward when offering a comprehensive consultation package to our clients particularly as local authorities require that we demonstrate thorough and effective engagement with the wider community.”
The Bristol Graphic Design team led by Paul Owens was commissioned to create a unique signature identity and logo for the scheme as part of the consultation package. They also produced exhibition material, designed a dedicated project website and set up social networking pages on Facebook and Twitter.
A planning application was submitted in March 2012 and is awaiting a decision. To view the website visit www.UWEstadium.com.
Paul said: “The website and social networking pages have proven an invaluable tool for promoting the events, gauging public opinion and gathering feedback. Within the first 24 hours of launching the website, we’d had 859 visitors, 294 followers on Twitter and 220 ‘Likes’ on Facebook.

Subject to planning permission it would make UWE the first university campus with a 20,000 seat stadium in the UK putting it on a par with many
international universities. Bristol Rugby Club who currently share the old Memorial Stadium with Bristol Rovers have been offered the opportunity to move to the new stadium as it will conform to all FIFA and Rugby Union standards.
