The Football Trade Directory has agreed a media partnership with Grass Roots Football LIVE.
Now in its 5th year, Grass Roots Football LIVE has established itself as one of the industry’s most important and successful annual events, attracting thousands of participants from around the country.
At the heart of the show is an exhibition with more than 150 companies demonstrating a range of products and services direct to grassroots coaches, managers, club secretaries and players.
Managing Director Bob Rosen commented: “Grass Roots Football LIVE provides suppliers with an unrivalled opportunity to interact with budget holders and key influencers from the country’s largest multi-team clubs. Extensive post show research showed that the two key reasons for adult visitors to attend the event were to enhance their coaching skills and look for new products and equipment for their club and team”.
FTD Director George Moss concurs "Grass Roots Football LIVE is one of the first dates on the Calendar each year and this years exhibition gives our clients old and new a direct route to Grass Roots Football Clubs. Networking is a key part of business and this year’s show will offer more opportunity for brand awareness to several thousand teams under one roof."
High profile clinicians have driven the rise in attendance over the last two years with sessions provided by the likes of Harry Redknapp, Graham Taylor, Paul Hart, Steve McClaren, Dario Gradi, Peter Taylor, Ian Holloway, Aidy Boothroyd, Hope Powell, Bryan Robson and Don Howe.
Grass Roots Football LIVE 2010 will take place at the NEC, Birmingham over the weekend of 4th – 6th June.
