ON & OFF THE PITCH SUCCESS (SEASON 2017/18)
Date Posted | 03/08/2018
As the 2017/18 season passes, we are pleased to have seen our Football Clubs (West Ham, Fulham, Brighton, Millwall & Tottenham FC) all have another fantastic season on and off the pitch.
At each venue we have a team of dedicated Managers, Supervisors & Key personnel who form the backbone to the success of our operation which is of course contributed by all the supporting staff involved. Putting in place the staffing operation is a real team effort and could also not be done without the dedication and commitment given by our Senior Account Managers and Bookings team who over the course of the season co-ordinate several of thousands of bookings.
At West Ham FC / London Stadium we were entrusted with overseeing the entire Hospitality and back of house Areas which we are pleased to say was a total success. Managers, Supervisors, Response and a team of Hospitality personnel all played their part in welcoming guests whilst ensuring they have a safe and enjoyable experience whilst visiting this magnificent stadium.
Millwall FC had an amazing season on the pitch and were so close to gaining the elusive promotion to the Premier League but unfortunately fell just short on this occasion. Having reached the playoffs its fair to say that the intensity and expectations were high which lead to record breaking crowds at the Den! Our Management team worked closely with the Stadiums Safety Officer and Emergency Services ensuring that a robust & tactical operation was implemented. Our 200+ strong team worked closely with the Police and combined the operation worked extremely well, which we must mention was achieved by Millwall’s fantastic supporters all of whom were a real pleasure to work with! We are looking forward to the following season and will be there all they way to support the club in achieving their ultimate goal of gaining promotion to the Premiership!
What an amazing season it was for Fulham FC who gained promotion back to the Premiership! Our association with the club since 2008 as one of their lead providers for Security and Stewards has meant that we have seen the high’s and lows of the club jumping between leagues! Over that time our strength in depth with the club reached an all-time high last season with us providing a combination of roles ranging from but not limited to the following: Turnstile Operators, Stand and Track Stewards, Searchers, Response Teams, Car Park, TMO and many others. In addition to this we regularly provide a dedicated team of staff at both of clubs Training Grounds. We wish Fulham every success in the Premiership and long may it continue!
Brighton FC secured another season in the premiership which was fantastic news. Our Response Teams and Stewards thoroughly enjoy going to the seaside to work at this great stadium.
In effect it was our first season working with Tottenham Hotspur FC who took up residence at Wembley Stadium, one of our other venues. Working closely with the Stadium’s team as well as the Tottenham’s in-house team was a real pleasure. Given our long term working relationship with Wembley we were pleased to have supported Tottenham’s supporters with experienced personnel, making their visit for all home fixtures a pleasurable experience.
We were delighted to have been a part of this operation and wish Tottenham every success at their New Stadium………..a place we would love for our working relationship to blossom at…….?!
