Eagles reach for the skies
April 1st update – We do have lots of sponsorship & advertising opportunities available here. Get in touch with our Commercial Manger Lee Kilby and get involved with The Eagles in 2021.
Fresh from the news of his appointment, the Eagles new Commercial Manager Lee Kilby has already made his mark on Arlington, and not just at ground level.
Always on the lookout for innovative ways to help increase both the exposure and the commercial revenue opportunities for the club, Kilby commented:
“Arlington is a fantastic, self-contained venue to watch speedway. Whilst chatting to our Title Sponsors HG Aerospace, an idea came to me how we could transform one of the biggest and possibly the most under-utilised areas of the stadium, the centre green, into a massive opportunity.
“Having looked on flight tracker, it appears that Arlington is directly in the flight path of both Gatwick and the near by Shoreham airport. After reaching out to a local, environmentally friendly spray-painting company, we devised a way to maximise the centre green as a branding opportunity, similar to the visual advertising used around the edges of Formula one tracks and Six nations rugby pitches.
We trialed an initial 200 metre long club logo during my stadium visit last week, however the opportunity is open to any brands or businesses who wish to make the most of this unique opportunity, showcasing their brand at both ground level, the back straight stand and beyond, especially as flights increase as we come out of lockdown.”
