On day 2 of the Pitch Management Workshop in Leicester City FC’s King Power Stadium and Training Centre ESSMA members learned more about day-to-day ops and player injury management further on the program were two panel debates and a behind-the-scenes tour. 

The two-day Pitch Management Workshop in Leicester City FC’s King Power Stadium and Training Centre brought together ESSMA Members to learn, network and knowledge-share on all aspects pertaining to pitch management, from pitch renovations, tools & technologies, to player injury management, budget control and managing events. 

The host venue for ESSMA's two-day Pitch Management Workshop, held May 10 and 11, was Leicester City Football Club’s King Power Stadium. Throughout the season, their pitch has been the focus of much talk in both the grounds staff sector and wider afield thanks to the hard work and dedication of Grounds Manager John Ledwidge and his team.

The first workshop of ESSMA in 2017 is on its way, the Pitch Management Workshop is organized at Leicester FC’s King Power Stadium. 

Last week we had a chat with Michael Lloyd, Deputy Stadium Manager at Arsenal FC and speaker on the first day of the ESSMA-BASIS Smart & Sustainable Stadium Workshop that will take place at Emirates and Twickenham Stadium in London from 7 to 8 June 2017.
