New Training Ground Name... The Recon Training Complex

Post by deadbuzzardalive on Wed Apr 11, 2018 3:31 pm

Wasn't sure where to post this, so gave it it's own thread...

Aston Villa has confirmed a naming rights partnership for the club’s Bodymoor Heath training facility to be renamed The Recon Training Complex with immediate effect.

The five-year partnership will see Recon become the club’s first ever training ground partner and they will work with Aston Villa to develop, drive forward and build technical capability within The Recon Training Complex, which in turn will allow them to showcase their products and services.

In addition to the brand benefits and naming rights of the training ground, Recon will benefit from a host of other marketing rights including media backdrop branding, LED advertising at Villa Park, digital advertising, access to players, VIP experiences and matchday hospitality.

The Bodymoor Heath site has been our training ground since the 1970s and underwent a multi-million-pound transformation before the start of the 2007/08 season, turning it into a modern facility. A new state-of-the-art performance lounge has been created to allow an innovative approach to analysis. The installation of HD cameras with high-speed fibre links now provides the football department with real-time training footage and touchscreen technology for the first time. Players can also benefit from a sports psychology lounge within the training complex as well as improvements to the existing rehabilitation facilities.

As well as serving as a base for the first team, The Recon Training Complex is also used by the club’s academy and ladies team.

Aston Villa has enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Recon Group since Dr Tony Xia purchased the club in 2016, with the company’s logo appearing on the back of the first team’s shirts.

Dr Xia, the Aston Villa Chairman, said: “The naming of Bodymoor Heath, and the extensive package of marketing rights, provides Recon and our group businesses with a unique communication platform to showcase our services and products.

“We’re very proud to make this announcement and look forward to developing the technological showcase of our offering.”

Keith Wyness, the Aston Villa CEO, said: “This partnership will guarantee that the club continues to develop best in class training facilities. Investment in our training ground is vital to optimising performance on the pitch and we are glad to be working with a long-term partner to create advantage at Aston Villa Football Club.

“The training ground is also one of our key revenue generators as we send coaches overseas to spread the Villa techniques and philosophy forming a key pillar of our international plans.”

I'm seeing a lot of people asking if this is a way around FFP, and presuming that there's going to be money involved, but from reading the article it sounds like Recon are going to update the training ground in various ways, in return for naming rights, there's no mention of them putting money into the club for this. Even if they are there's only so much they're allowed put in, as it as to be the going rate, what that is for sponsoring a Championship training ground I'm not sure, but it can't be that much.

Yes more of a way for Xia to promote Recon i guess, still every little helps and if it means no funds being tied up in training ground stuff then go for it i say.
