New specialist service for football transfer window scores for teams
Wed 20th Jul 2016 | Marketing & PR
Ahead of the football transfer window closing at the end of August, sports specialist travel management business, ATPI Sports Events has launched a new Transfer Support service offering super-tight confidentiality.
Manchester-based ATPI Sports Events, part of the ATPI Group, already handles the travel management for various major Premier League and Championship teams. This experience and the ability to respond quickly during high-pressure transfer windows have shaped the new service.
Key features of Transfer Support include:
- Dedicated 24/7 phone number, manned by an experienced senior team
- Around the clock access to trusted suppliers of private jets, helicopters, and vehicles
- Discreet hotel reservations
- No lengthy implementation – the Transfer Support service can be started almost immediately
- Utmost attention to duty of care
- Access to the ATPI Group’s wider global buying power
Kate Suddards, head of sports, UK, ATPI Sports Events, explains:
“During the football transfer window, the travel requirements for prospective players are fast and furious, often changing by the hour. To add to the complications, these travel arrangements also need to be highly confidential. If a football club books a private jet between certain destinations, it often isn’t difficult for news of high-profile player negotiations to leak. Our specialist team deals with everything, ensuring that the name of the club is not disclosed.”
The nature of the transfer window season means that football clubs face real challenges with finding the right travel suppliers to meet their last minute needs, and often outside of office hours. The ATPI Sports Events team has people able to meet the complex requirements whilst offering the utmost confidentiality, freeing up the club to focus on the negotiations.
“Providing the correct support for players away from the pitch means that they and their families can settle into their new club smoothly, which can have a direct influence on their performance. We have worked hard with other partners in the sector, such as Premier Sports Network, to enhance our services around player care. Helping clubs make the transfer season as painless as possible is just part of the service from ATPI Sports Events.”
ATPI Sports Events has a prestigious track record and are the event management power behind corporate sponsorship activation and logistics at major sporting events such as the 2014 Commonwealth Games, the 2015 Rugby World Cup, the Volvo Ocean Race and both Summer and Winter Olympic Games. ATPI Sports Events is proud to be an Official Ticket Reseller and travel partner (Netherlands) for the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio, the continuation of a relationship that began in 1997.
