Bristol City Community Trust has been shortlisted for the Football Business Awards 2012.
The Trust, a charity organisation based at Ashton Gate, is up for the Best Club Community Scheme honour against six other teams.
The award winner will be the club that has shown the biggest commitment to the local community, its people and businesses.
The judges will also be looking for innovative ways of engaging with defined stakeholders, such as the club’s newly-launched CommunityPark at Ashton Gate.
Community director Amy Kington said: “In the past 12 months we’ve worked tirelessly to strengthen our work in the community and it’s great, as relative newcomers to be rewarded with this prestigious nomination at the Football Business Awards.
“We’re up against well respected and credible community teams, but that just shows how far we’ve come in such a short time.”
The Trust recently showcased on primetime BBC1 helping out refurbishments at local schools, and has also been featured on the Football League website.
