As a partner of The FA, we have been able to reach a broad and growing demographic, with a fan base and participation levels continuing to increase all the time. Through our support of the game at every level, we are able to communicate with customers through a national programme with genuine local relevance and make a real and measurable difference to the progression of the sport.
That’s why we have teamed up with St. George’s Park, the training and preparation ground for all of the 24 England national football teams, to ensure the teams have everything they need.
Facilities comprise 14 football pitches, including a full size indoor 3G pitch, and an exact replica of the Wembley pitch. Furthermore, there are state of the art rehabilitation and sports science areas, and an indoor Futsal sports hall.
Just like our legendary Contidrom track at our HQ in Hanover, Germany, only the best will do. We've taken tyre testing to a new level. Through a fully automated process in the Contidrom hall, an unmanned test vehicle accelerates up to speeds of 75 mph (120 km/h) and then brakes on interchangeable, hydraulically powered road surfaces.
And just like the facilities at St. George's Park, tests can be conducted all year round. At Contidrom, tests are conducted on both wet and dry road surfaces, and in a separate ice lane to check the performance of winter tyres and all-season tyres.
