Game 2 Preview

Aztecs Opening Home Game – hosting Kent Exiles


The Aztecs lost in game 1 and so are looking to bounce back this Sunday. This is also the Exiles second game of the season following their successful promotion campaign in 2018.

Kick-off is at 2pm and the event is free to attend for all supporters.


Head Coach Benjamin Herod says “It’s great to see Kent up in the top flight, I could not be happier for this team and David Pester especially. Am looking forward to our first home game and trying to get some confidence before traveling to London next week to play the Warriors.


We’ll need to convert time of possession and yards into points this week on offense and find a way to keep their RB in check on defence.


Another large group of players will be seeing their first ever adult football this week lowering our average age even further. We could be starting as many as 10 under 20 years of age. They are a very exciting group to watch as they are so young and fearless.”

American Sports in the UK continue to grow in popularity and in the world of American Football, there is now the largest number of teams and leagues there has ever been. Many companies are attracted to the sport because of the low costs (compared to other sports) and being able to present their logo or brand to a growing public.


Bristol Aztecs play in the highest league in the country and are the most successful team in the South West of England. Most of our away trips are London oriented.


As you would expect, we have our own website, along with a very active presence on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. We cherish our sponsors by giving them lots of exposure on these social media channels.


Apart from media coverage, we also offer an insight into what goes on behind the scenes. Examples include attending training sessions, chatting with the players and coaches and generally enjoying the atmosphere at our home games.


So, come and have fun with us. Work with us. Grow with us.

The Bristol American Football organisation grows ever larger and stronger. Did you know that our new women’s team the Amazons, have been formed and are training every week at the Wise Campus in Filton? Today is International Women’s Day so it’s a great opportunity to find out more.


The Amazons are led by Emma Paterson and here’s what she had to say:


“Continuing on from the success of the Aztecs and Apache men's teams, Bristol Football decided to establish the Bristol Amazons Women's American Football team in 2019. Whether you have knowledge of the sport or not, we welcome adult women to come along and get involved. The beauty of American Football is that it takes a team of all sizes to win and there really is a position for anyone.


We are an inclusive, positive group of people who encourage each other to progress each week. The Amazons are aiming to develop an experienced team who will take part in the next Sapphire series and complete in regular scrimmages against teams from nearby cities.


To celebrate International Women's Day, I encourage women to try a new sport this year, female players in the UK have gone on to coach in the NFL and play for women's teams across the pond and in Europe so the sky is now the limit.”


Emma has set up a Facebook Page for the Amazons and you can contact her there and follow the team’s progress. Search for Bristol Academy Amazon Women’s American Football Team

There are two games left in the season and they involve away trips to both the teams who are below us in the league. Our target is to win both games and so finish the season on a 5 – 5 record. The Farnham Knights game will not be easy as they have beaten us before. This is our closest league fixture even though it involves a round trip of about 160 miles!


Coach Powles says “We have been playing the Knights for over 25 years, there is a lot of history so it’s always a game that means a lot to both teams. They have one of the best RB in the country and have just had a good win, so we expect a close game.”

Sunday 12 August – 2.30 pm K.O

Venue: Farnham Rugby Club, Monkton Lane, Farnham GU9 9ND Onsite parking is free and the game is on a 90-yard long grass field
