Pitchcare.com have joined forces with the UK's leading publisher of sporting newspapers, Greenway's Publishing, to offer regular features on groundcare advice for rugby, football and cricket to the readers of The Rugby Paper, The Non-League Paper and The Cricket Paper respectively.
Neil Wooding, responsible for Trade Marketing and Partnership Development adds, "I'm delighted we have joined forces with Pitchcare.com to offer our readers additional added value and insight through regular groundcare features. Certainly, within grassroots sport, a lot of groundcare at club level can be undertaken by volunteers and club officials with no direct experience or qualifications of groundcare. Whilst those volunteers can be enthusiastic, our regular Pitchcare.com features will be able to guide and inform, making for a better sporting experience on the ground."
Pitchcare's Operations Director, John Richards said, "The nationwide circulation of the three titles gives us an opportunity to help groundsmen at all levels, but particularly those connected with local and non-league clubs. Whilst many will already be Pitchcare members, this target specific approach can only be of benefit to groundsmen."
David Emery, MD of Greenways Publishing, comments, "our sporting newspapers offer unrivalled coverage of the game from the grassroots up to professional game, and we think that appeals to a lot of passionate and dedicated players, officials and fans of the sport. With a paid-for annual circulation of three million copies and a highly engaged readership, both in print and online, we are the UK's number one dedicated sporting newspaper publisher."
"To celebrate our partnership with Pitchcare.com, we are offering 20% off our advertising rates around the Pitchcare.com features in our newspapers."
