LEIGH Centurions’ new corporate Touchdown Club is gaining momentum after hosting an Open Evening for businesses at the Leigh Sports Village.
Companies were introduced to the scheme’s Gold package of enhanced season tickets, where businesses will pay £50 per month and receive bonuses including a hospitality room in the stadium on matchdays with lunch and networking opportunities included.
Businesses also got to see some of the Centurions players, as James Taylor, Steve Maden and Martin Ridyard all dropped in on the open evening to put pen to paper on a new contract.
Club founder Mike Nixon said: “It’s a promising start. A couple of businesses signed up there and then on the night, and we had excellent feedback from the others, who could see immediately what we are trying to do.
“We also had a couple of lapsed supporters down and they want to get involved in some way, so that’s good.
“The club has never had anything remotely like this before, so it will be quite a steep learning curve for everyone.”
