Following a public vote by fans of Bristol City and Bristol Rovers, two famous football league moments in the history of both clubs has now been created as street art.

The works near Temple Meads are part of the Goals Worth Talking About campaign from the EFL and Mind’s On Your Side.

The aim is to highlight how football is often a conversation starter and the importance of talking when it comes to mental health support.
