American Football may not seem like the most obvious sport to play or support in a country where we already have such a wide range of sports played to a high level. But the sheer professionalism and global marketing capacity of the NFL
(the National Football League) means that American Football is one of the fastest growing sports in the United Kingdom.
Bristol is one of the strongholds of American Football in the UK, with over 200 registered players currently representing Bristol’s various teams. But only now will Bristol University, for the first time, have its own team.
A Professional Organisation
The Bristol Barracuda is a University Sports team with a substantial difference. It is being established and managed not only by students, but also by some of the leading names in UK American Football – professional personnel with extensive experience of launching competitive teams with the British Universities and Colleges Sport
. This is not the world of bouncing cheques or student loans, but a club established with a viable business plan and a formidable array of talent in its administrative ranks.
American Football teams are large enterprises, and the Bristol Barracuda squad numbers some 50 elite athletes, along with a large support staff of coaches and administrators, all dedicated to promoting the 'Cuda on a national stage.
The Barracuda are fully committed to a range of community projects which will further enhance the publicity the team will receive. School demonstrations and various grass-roots initiatives will take the game to young people who have never tried the sport – all in the spotlight of the press.
The Bristol Barracuda are unashamedly ambitious. For many years, players from Bristol University have turned out for the local UWE Bullets – a team based around the University of the West of England. Recently, it became very apparent that the Bristol University Players are among the best players at the Bullets. This year, two Bristol University players were selected for the Great Britain Bulldogs (the student representative side) and three others were selected to represent the South versus the North. Based on past form, then, it is clear that the Barracuda will attract some of the finest student athletes in the country, continuing the strong tradition of Bristol University Sport.
Backed by a quite exceptional coaching staff, the Barracuda have entered the British Universities and Colleges Sport, travelling to fixtures as disparate as Glasgow and Plymouth, Aberystwyth and Norwich. The Bristol Barracuda aim to be the leading University-based American Football team in the country by 2012 – an eminently achievable target.
