Replay Maintenance renew partnership with NFA

Agreement will bring specialist knowledge and support to local clubs

We're pleased to announce we've extended our ongoing partnership with synthetic sports pitch maintenance specialists REPLAY MAINTENANCE for another two seasons.

As part of this unique partnership, Northumberland FA and its member clubs have access to information and expert advice on the planning and implementation of an artificial surface maintenance programme. Replay’s remit is driven by a desire to put innovation at the heart of the business. Never more so than through the introduction of Passport365, an asset management tool that is revolutionising the industry and breaking down barriers for the grassroots game – a tool that all partnered Northumberland FA members could have access to.

A fundamental element of the partnership is the opportunity to design a bespoke in-house training course, run in conjunction with Replay, as well as exploring individual CPD training options for facility staff. Other benefits include free site surveys, reporting and competitively priced, bespoke maintenance packages.

As part of the partnership all 3G Pitch owners, managers and operators throughout the county can benefit from the following services that Replay Maintenance offer:

  • Free Pitch Inspections and Reports
  • Discounted Specialist Annual Maintenance Contracts
  • Emergency Callout Service
  • In-House Maintenance Training
  • Pitch Repairs, Infill Top-Ups, Linemarking, Weed Treatments
  • FA Appeal works

Commenting on the new sponsorship agreement, Replay Maintenance’s Managing Director, Nick Harris, said, “We have enjoyed a positive working relationship with Northumberland FA and in that time have shared new processes, advice and guidance to support those responsible for maintaining artificial surfaces. The partnership is a testament to our dedication to raising awareness around, and the quality of, effective maintenance regimes. We look forward to supporting Northumberland FA and sharing new developments with the grassroots clubs and organisations within its membership.”

Northumberland FA's Head of Business Development, Helen Beales, said: "With the county’s stock of 3G pitches growing all the time, it’s crucial that we support clubs with their maintenance regimes. We wanted to ensure our area is going to be in the best possible position to support the grassroots game going forward and, as such, I’m delighted that we’ve managed to agree our continued partnership with Replay Maintenance.”
