The UK football sector

With its rich football heritage and wealth of experience in the industry, the UK is uniquely positioned to deliver the goods and services needed to support the sector globally. From world leading stadium design, building and fit-out to coaching and fan engagement, the UK is at the forefront of innovation and achievement.

The safety and security at stadiums and events across the UK have set the standard for international best practice for major sporting events and venue management.

Fan engagement whether through social media or on game day itself, is a burgeoning industry and the UK is at the cutting edge of this. Digital agencies throughout the UK are redesigning club websites to the latest hi-tech standards, while a host of new apps are keeping information-hungry fans abreast of the latest goings on at their club.
