The new Mercedes-Benz Stadium is proving to be a hit with fans - not least thanks to its fan-centric concessions pricing structure. With praise being heaped upon the stadium operators for targeting lower prices, should other major stadia follow suit and prioritize savings for fans over revenue from F&B?

SIS Pitches announced as main partner at Oxford City FC

English soccer club Oxford City FC has announced a partnership with SIS Pitches at the launch of the club’s new SISTurf 3G pitch at Marsh Lane.

The sponsorship deal will see SIS Pitches feature on the front of the new Oxford City home and away shirts and includes an ongoing maintenance package for the state-of-the-art facility at Marsh Lane.

The new surface took SIS Pitches just 11 weeks to complete. Work included removal of the natural turf pitch and the installation of the brand-new SISTurf Soccer Pro 50 surface and new crowd barriers.

Director of football Justin Merritt is now hoping the club can use all the excitement surrounding the renovation to its advantage.

“It’s a big transformation,” he said, “and we are grateful to our main partner SIS Pitches for all of their support on the fantastic project.

“The players turned up for the first time a few weeks ago and were amazed at how it looked and there was a lot of excitement about it. To have a record crowd on the first game played on the 3G surface is unbelievable.

“It’s not just the first team,” he continued. “It’s everybody – the junior team, the disability team – we want to make a massive push to get the club on its rightful standing.”

Matthew Streeter, contracts manager at SIS Pitches, commented, “We are very proud to become the main partner sponsor at Oxford City and to have worked on this project.

“We have seen how a brand-new facility like this can transform clubs in non-league football and provide substantial benefits for the local community but also for the commercial benefit of the club and we have no doubt it will do the same for Oxford City and we look forward to playing a continued role in the utilization of the project.”
