Tractor on Grass Pitch at Stoneham Lane Football Complex

Grounds & Maintenance Forum

Hampshire FA and Partners Unite for Grounds & Maintenance Forum

Hampshire FA has teamed up with partners Fleet Line Markers, MH Goals, Southern Ground Care, VEO, Technical Surfaces and The GMA to host a Grounds & Maintenance Forum designed with grassroots clubs in mind.

The forum will take place as follows:

What: A series of indoor presentations and outdoor demonstrations delivered and designed with grassroots clubs in mind.

Date: Wednesday 9th March 2022

Times: 9am – 5pm

Location: Stoneham Lane Football Complex, Stoneham Lane, Southampton SO16 2PA

Cost: FREE to Hampshire FA members and Local Authorities

Refreshments are available to purchase from the café on the day.

Our Stoneham Lane Football Complex will be well kitted out with tables of information, a team of experts on hand and ready to talk together with a series of indoor presentations and outdoor demonstrations of products, machinery, and equipment.

The first part of the forum will be dedicated to partner presentations, with company representatives individually presenting on their respective areas of expertise, providing insights into their business, services, and products.

Following presentations, members will be invited outside whereby our partners will demonstrate their products and services on offer (taking place on the artificial and grass pitches), be on hand to advise members, and discuss individual club requirements/needs.

The forum has been designed with grassroots clubs firmly in mind and for all those unsung heroes who maintain the pitches, week in and week out, from line marking, putting up the nets to ensuring the turfs are cleaned and prepped before and after every match.

With the Grounds Team of the Year Awards now open for nominations, we saw a timely opportunity to arrange this forum, hoping to provide insight, industry experience and assistance to our members by connecting them with the very people we have partnered with to support them.

Fleet Line Markers, MH Goals, VEO, Southern Ground Care, Technical Surfaces and The GMA.
