Southampton Strike Up Uni-que Partnership

Fri 23rd Aug 2013 | Marketing & PR

Southampton Football Club have welcomed Southampton Solent University as their Official University Partner.

The university's sport science staff will work alongside the club's experts to help monitor the fitness of the playing squad, including using their laboratories for VO2 max testing, which assists with training programs and match preparation. 

The partnership also gives the club access to the university's most promising students, and has already added some of the best graduates to its staff.

Through the partnership, the club will increase awareness of Solent University at home and abroad, plus explore joint health initiatives with the Saints Foundation for the benefit of the city.

Dominic Fawcett, Chief Commercial Officer at Southampton Football Club, said: "We are very proud to partner with SSU. Their pioneering work in sports science and football studies has great synergy with 'The Southampton Way'."

Trevor Thorne, Director of Marketing and Communications at Solent University, added: "This exciting new partnership gives us the opportunity to help raise the profile of the university, the Club and the city."
