CONCOURSE COMMUNAL AREAS:
We're able to get you in front of groups of fans via our Concourse TV system (where we have two advertising formats, the Main Panel and Banners). Our FanTV's 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.
INSIGHT AND FACTS
Stockport County Football Club aka The Hatters, County. Founded in 1883, as Heaton Norris Rovers.
The club is a semi-professional football club, who are nicknamed the Hatters, a name the club share with Luton, due to the club’s history as the centre of the Victoria hat-making industry.
The Hatters play in the National League North. The club play their home games at the Edgeley Park Stadium. It is an all-seater stadium, holding 10,900 spectators.
In 1935 the Main stand burned down, as it was made of wood. The club’s records were also destroyed in the fire.
The stand was redeveloped and is now called the Danny Bergara Stand, in honour of their late manager Danny Bergara. It has been reconstructed with brick and steel and has 2,020 seats, of which 405 are executive. There are several bars and facilities in this stand.
The Cheadle End is behind the goal at the west end of the ground, and is one of the largest stands outside the Premier League. This was redeveloped in 1995.This is a two-tiered stand, holding 5,044 supporters. The stand holds a banqueting and conference facility, as well as other club facilities.
In the summer of 2015, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council purchased the stadium in order to prevent it from being demolished and redeveloped. After a plea from fans to save the stadium, the council purchased it for £2 Million. It is currently being leased back to the club. The Hatters are around 7 miles from both Manchester City, and Manchester United.
