Leicestershire and Rutland County FA teams up with Replay Maintenance for synthetic sports pitch maintenance services

Leicestershire & Rutland County FA has extended its ongoing partnership with synthetic sports pitch maintenance specialists Replay Maintenance for a further three years.

As part of this unique partnership, Leicestershire & Rutland FA and its members have access to information and expert advice on the planning and implementation of an artificial maintenance programme. Replay’s 20 years of success is driven by a desire to put innovation at the heart of the business and through Passport365, their new workflow management system, site maintenance information is just a click away.

A fundamental element of the collaboration is the opportunity to design bespoke in-house training courses, run in conjunction with Replay Maintenance, as well as exploring individual CPD training options for facility staff. Other benefits include free site surveys, reporting and competitively priced, bespoke maintenance packages.

Through their partnership, all Leicestershire based 3G Pitch owners, managers and operators will benefit from a range of specialist services that Replay Maintenance offers, including free pitch inspections and facility survey reports for each site, discounted specialist annual maintenance contracts, emergency callout service, in-house maintenance training, pitch repairs, infill top-ups, linemarking, weed treatments and FA appeal works.


Commenting on the new sponsorship agreement, Replay Maintenance Managing Director, Nick Harris, said: “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 renewal of the partnership with Leicestershire FA is testament to our dedication to raising awareness around, and the quality of, effective maintenance regimes. We look forward to supporting Leicestershire FA and sharing new developments with the grassroots clubs and organisations within its membership.”

Based on the Nottinghamshire/Lincolnshire border at Long Bennington, Replay Maintenance has established a well-renowned reputation within the artificial sports surface sector over the past two decades. More recently, the company has expanded its presence in the sports equipment field with the introduction of the Player Sports e-commerce site.

Leicestershire & Rutland County FA CEO, Joe Dunmore, said: “With the county’s stock of 3G pitches growing all the time, it’s crucial we help to ensure they’re being looked after effectively. 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’re always keen to understand how we can develop and better the offer to our member clubs and associated organisations, Replay’s expert advice is invaluable.”
