CONCOURSE COMMUNAL AREAS:
We're able to get you in front of groups of fans via concourse 6 Sheet advertising posters. Our 6 sheets give you the chance to get what you do in front of fans while they are in groups, meaning a higher likelihood of them talking about your advertising. You don't have to advertise all the way around the stadium for your advertising to be effective; we're able to target particular groups of fans by focusing on different areas of the ground, whether that be getting your brand in front of more affluent fans by targeting the areas around the halfway line, or family ticket holders around the family zones.
Fans spend between 2 and 4 1/2 hours in the stadium per match, and these concourse options are great for catching them as they hang out discussing the game.
If you would prefer one on one engagement with the fans on matchdays then try our A3-sized posters in the washrooms. We're able to offer two different zones in our washrooms: the first zone is the urinals giving you true one on one time with the audience, while the second is the hand washing area (where our advertising posters are placed above the sinks and around hand driers).
Both zones offer high dwell times of 30-60 seconds
INSIGHT AND FACTS
Crewe Alexandra Football Club, known as The Railwaymen or The Alex, was formed in 1877 (as Crewe). Named after Princess Alexandra, they entered the Football Alliance League in 1889, before becoming founding members of the Football League Second Division in 1892.
The team compete in League Two, the fourth tier of the English Football League. Nicknamed The Railwaymen because of the town's links with the Railway system, they have played at Gresty Road since 1906.
Although they are not in Wales, Crewe earned their first honours by winning the Welsh Cup in 1936 and 1937.
Alexandra Stadium, more commonly known as Gretsy Road is the home ground of Crewe Alexandra, and has an all-seated capacity of 10,153.
The ground is made up of four stands. In the 1990’s the stadium was rebuilt, with all-seater stands constructed on all four sides of the ground.
The Air Products Stand (formerly the Railtrack Stand, before a change in sponsors), built in 2000 at a cost of £5.2 million. It accommodates 6,809 spectators, together with the club's office accommodation.
The Absolute Recruitment Stand (formerly The Mark Price Stand, before a change in sponsors) also known as the Gresty Road End, accommodates 982 spectators and 4 disabled spectators.
The Blue Bell Family Stand also known as the Railway End, accommodates 682 spectators. The Whitby Morrison Ice Cream Van Stand (formerly the Pop Side), accommodates 1,680 away spectators.
In May 2015 the ground held an international friendly match between Northern Ireland and Qatar.
Crewe's fans were the first to sing the famous football song ‘Blue Moon’. The song was a response to the gloomy days at Gresty Road during the mid-1900s.
