ESSMA F&B Benchmark Report

September 11, 2018

ESSMA is proud to present its first Benchmark Report, focusing on Food and Beverages. The goal of this research is to discover insights in the current Food & Beverage stadium market. The research focuses on general audience and does not include hospitality packages.

During last year's Pitch Management workshop, Lee Jackson, Head Groundsman at Manchester City FC shared his insights related to player injury management and the typical injuries sustained depending on the pitch conditions.

The ESSMA Knowledge Platform, an all-in-one online platform, offers ESSMA members the opportunity to benefit from our extensive database. With exclusive access to in-depth interviews, presentations and best practices from clubs, leagues and venues such as FC Bayern Munich, Valencia CF, Manchester City FC, Stade De France, LaLiga, Stade Rochelais and others. Add value to your organisation by using the content as a benchmark and by learning from industry peers.

Earlier this year, ESSMA interviewed Tony Stones, Head Groundsman at Stade de France. Together with three colleagues, he is in charge of the Stade de France pitch and the untroubled transition between football, rugby and non-pitch events.

During the ESSMA Pitch Management Workshop at Leicester FC’s King Power Stadium earlier this year, Reece Watson, Head Groundsman of Arsenal F.C. explained several topics on tools and technologies employed at the club.
