Spaciotempo has continued its impressive run in the NPower football league by providing a new players’ tunnel to Preston North End.
In addition to a host of Premier League clubs, Spaciotempo has supplied its retractable player tunnels to a vast number of teams in the lower leagues and non league football in recent seasons. PNE joins Chesterfield and Notts County as the latest clubs to recognise the quality of the products and the commercial opportunity they provide through branding.
The Npower Championship side unveiled the new tunnel – branded with new sponsor Tennent’s -for the first time in their season opener against Doncaster at Deepdale.
Spaciotempo managing director, Mark Taylor said: “We are delighted to provide this impressive retractable players’ tunnel to such a prestigious team as Preston North End.
“We have worked in close conjunction with both the club and the sponsors, Tennent’s, to deliver an effective and strongly branded tunnel within an extremely tight timeframe. The result is an attractive new tunnel which is set to become a popular fixture at Deepdale.
“Spaciotempo retractable tunnels are currently used at a significant number of professional and semi-professional football grounds from non-league through to Premier League stadia. They not only offer player protection but lucrative sponsorship opportunities as they become the focal point of attention as the players enter and leave the pitch.”
The tunnel specified is black and features the Tennent’s logo. It is 1.8 metres wide and 8.0 metres long when fully extended. Mounted on pneumatic rubber tyres so it can easily be retracted, the tunnel has a pass through height of 2.2 metres.
Preston North End retail manager Warren Bennett added: “We were delighted by the proactive ‘can do’ approach of the Spaciotempo team in delivering an excellent new players entrance tunnel at Deepdale as part of a new sponsorship agreement with Tennent’s Lager.
“In a challenging timeframe they delivered a quality product at an excellent price. This was much to the delight of the sponsor after assisting with several changes in artwork to find the best visual standout for the brand. We would have no hesitation in recommending Spaciotempo.”
