Coventry City FC

Ever since its impressive run of 34 consecutive seasons (since 1967) in the English top tier of football, Coventry City Football Club has faced many challenges. As for many football clubs, addressing its finances was high on the agenda in order for the Club to compete at the current level. This involved close scrutiny of the club’s operational costs, as we needed to ensure we got the most for our money. And now, following what has been our best start to a season since 1967, and as we chase promotion from the third tier of English football, the hard work of everyone involved at Coventry City is starting to pay off.

Coventry City FC identified energy as a substantial cost to the business and an area which needed to be improved upon rapidly from both a cost and efficiency basis. Seeking specialist assistance in this area, the company turned to GET Solutions, an independent and established energy consultancy. Having scoured the market and used their extensive contact base, we were able to secure an impressive 35% saving on our energy bills which we’ve been able to reinvest in other areas of the club and grow as a result. We’re delighted with the levels of service we’ve been provided with by GET Solutions.

Coventry Rugby Club is a thriving City business of 141 years and offers a variety of services which include Community programmes, Academy Development Centre, Match day tickets, Hospitality, Membership and Sponsorship services, in addition to a first rate venue for Conferences and Events.

As an established City business, our strategy is to add value to the core business wherever possible so we can channel revenue into the Team, Community and Academy schemes. Having identified energy as a crucial cost, we appointed fellow Coventry business and energy consultancy GET Solutions, to assist us in managing our energy more effectively.

Not only do GET Solutions purchase our energy at excellent rates, providing budget certainty, they also track energy markets for us, so we can take advantage if the market dips. Working with GET Solutions has been a breath of fresh air, helping us achieve financial goals through efficient energy management, but more importantly, freeing our time, so we can focus on our game, ‘the running and the successful progression of Coventry Rugby Club.’
