Avoid an own goal and switch your football club’s energy provider
Your football club is like any other business in that the price of your gas and electricity costs are going through the roof. But, rolling over your energy contract with your existing utility provider could be something of an own goal, as chances are, the renewal costs they quote can be beaten simply by switching your football club’s energy provider.
Regardless of whether your football club is in the National League or the Premier League, a quick look at the accounts and the costs associated with energy will come pretty high up on the balance sheet, the larger the club, the more startling the figures. It’s no surprise that football clubs can be heavy users of electricity in particular. Consider the lighting alone from floodlights to car parking lights – from lighting in the stands to lighting in the changing rooms. Bigger clubs also have training grounds to light and some boast underfloor heating and then there is the catering and hospitality – that’s one heck of a bill.
Give your current energy provider a red card
That’s why it makes financial sense for football clubs to look at switching their electricity supplier when their current contract is coming to an end. Now, if just the thought of trawling through all those different energy providers is causing you to ‘kickoff’ – you’ll be pleased to know that to get the ball rolling all you have to do is make one call or write one email to Utility Bidder.

Football clubs are also heavy users of water and energy to ensure those pitches remain in optimum condition.

In our experience, a third of businesses are being over-charged for the water and with our help, if this applies to your football club, you may be able to claim some of that back.
Are Football Clubs Going Green?
Whether your football club are reds or blues – chances are you will be going green. Many football clubs are leading the way when it comes to developing their sustainable credentials. According to Envirometer, after transport used by fans to get to the club, the biggest next biggest environmental impact of a football club is electricity.
For example, Manchester City have reduced costs by fitting 5,272 LED lamps and reduced energy use by almost 1m kW hours, while at Chelsea they have adopted energy saving and motion sensor lighting. At Liverpool, a team of 10 employees are tasked with raising awareness of energy savings – they are known as the ‘Reds Going Green’ team.
And you don’t need to be one of the big spenders to make a big difference. The world’s most sustainable football club is Forest Green Rovers, which has only recently been promoted to the Football League
Switching your football club’s gas and electricity supplier as well as making your own energy improvements – such as having a team responsible for energy awareness, swapping standard lights for LEDs, opting for motion detectors and so on will, when combined, show a considerable improvement in utility bills.
