SUFFOLK FA have extended their ongoing partnership with synthetic sports pitch maintenance specialists Replay Maintenance for the 2022-23 season.
As part of this unique partnership, Suffolk FA and its affiliated clubs have access to information and expert advice on the planning and implementation of an artificial surface maintenance programme. Replay’s remit is driven by a desire to put innovation at the heart of the business. Never more so than through the introduction of Passport365, an asset management tool that is revolutionising the industry and breaking down barriers for the grassroots game – a tool that all Suffolk FA clubs could have access to.
A fundamental element of the partnership is the opportunity to design a bespoke in-house training course, run in conjunction with Replay, as well as exploring individual CPD training options for facility staff. Other benefits include free site surveys, reporting and competitively priced, bespoke maintenance packages.
As part of the partnership all 3G Pitch owners, managers and operators throughout the county can benefit from the following services that Replay Maintenance offer:
- Free Pitch Inspections and Reports
- Discounted Specialist Annual Maintenance Contracts
- Emergency Callout Service
- In-House Maintenance Training
- Pitch Repairs, Infill Top-Ups, Linemarking, Weed Treatments
- FA Appeal works
Replay Maintenance’s Managing Director, Nick Harris, said of the new agreement: “We have enjoyed a positive working relationship with a number of County FAs over the last five years and in that time have shared new processes, advice and guidance to support those responsible for maintaining artificial surfaces.
“The growth of our partnership with Suffolk FA is testament to our dedication to raising awareness around, and the quality of, effective maintenance regimes.
We look forward to supporting Suffolk FA and sharing new developments with the grassroots clubs and organisations within its membership.”
Suffolk FA Football Development Manager Matt Stebbings said: “With the county’s stock of 3G pitches growing all the time, it’s crucial that we support the clubs in the county with their maintenance regimes. We view our partnership with Replay Maintenance as a step in the right direction towards providing the best quality sporting venues in the country.
“We wanted to ensure Suffolk is going to be in the best possible position to support the grassroots game going forward and, as such, I’m delighted that we’ve managed to agree a further year’s partnership with Replay Maintenance.”
