Matchsaver Goes From Strength to Strength
Tue 20th Mar 2012 | Football Stadiums & Facilities
2012 has started strongly for Matchsaver with a very high level of international interest and new orders for its’ unique automated pitch protection system. This follows on from a highly successful 2011 when Matchsaver announced two of its latest installations at REAL MADRID and FC GOTHENBURG, reinforcing Matchsaver’s position as the world leader in pitch covering systems.
The remote controlled Matchsaver System covers a full sized sports pitch at the press of a button in just 10 minutes maintaining the best possible playing conditions and almost eliminating match cancellations due to adverse weather. Matchsaver which is manufactured exclusively by Matchsaver Ltd (an MMC Group company) is widely recognised as the most effective covering system available and installed in over 50 of the world’s leading stadiums.
Paul Burgess, Head Groundsman at Real Madrid says;
At Real Madrid we constantly strive to keep our playing surfaces in world class condition, this is why we chose the Matchsaver system. It was excellent value, both in terms of cost and performance. The team’s training schedule is very tight and we didn’t want to be restricted by adverse weather conditions, I have been so impressed with the system that I have requested an additional 2 systems for our training ground!
“Our Matchsaver system now enables us to train when we want, without interruption as the pitch can be protected from rain, frost and snow at the press of a button. I would have no hesitation in recommending Matchsaver”.
Matchsaver® protects the pitch from rain, frost snow and ice at the press of a button, ensuring the game goes ahead as planned. Traditional manual covers from other manufacturers can take up to 12 staff 3 hours to cover a pitch (and the same to uncover), whereas Matchsaver® takes just 2 staff 10 minutes.
Matchsaver® is also widely used as a cost effective ALTERNATIVE to under-soil heating making it potentially self-funding. However for clubs that already have under-soil heating installed, when used in conjunction with Matchsaver®, the insulating effect of a Matchsaver® Cover can reduce their heating bills and carbon emissions by up to 50%!
Matchsaver benefits those involved in running the club at every level; the Chairman benefits from the fact that all fixtures are played on time saving the significant cost of cancelled matches. For the manager, it means the team can manage fixtures with confidence eliminating fixture congestion and match fatigue, as well as ensuring a consistent playing surface is maintained throughout the season.
Last but not least Groundsmen love the system as it makes the job of keeping the playing surface (in the stadium and the training ground) in peak condition more achievable, and within moments of a severe weather warning can cover the pitch at the press of a button!
To capitalise on their success, Matchsaver is now looking to appoint an experienced Sales Manager/Director to help meet ambitious expansion plans, as well as looking to appoint new overseas agents to develop new territories. If you have the relevant experience and a proven track record in developing business within the sports stadia business, contact Matchsaver in confidence by emailing Tim McCullagh, Director, Matchsaver firstname.lastname@example.org view Matchsaver in action online at www.matchsaver.com
