"Events like this are really important for the networking element of the day as I've met some people here that I really wanted to meet. I'm sharing experiences with them about what we do and listen to how they manage things. Sharing experience and how to overcome certain obstacles within pitch management with group of experts was a big eye-opener for me."
John Ledwidge, Grounds Manager Leicester City FC
"ESSMA's Pitch Management Workshop is a perfect platform for all European Grounds Managers to come together to share ideas and knowledge. The pitch has become a very important part of the stadium and ESSMA is building up the awareness of the Grounds Manager's role and the whole industry."
Jonathan Calderwood, Head Grounds Manager Paris Saint Germain
