Norwich City FC
Eleven Sports Media have been great to work with over the past few months. Their professional approach has helped the Club push revenue at a challenging time and their amiable manner has made our relationship extremely simple to manage.
The close communication that Matt, Chris and Simon have had with the Club has been important in making sure advertisers have had an enjoyable experience, and the close links that Eleven Sports have had with local sign maker, City Signs, has made the production process extremely hassle-free and efficient.
We all look forward to working closely with Eleven Sports Media next season and beyond.

Brighton & Hove Albion
Matthew and Eleven Sports have just completed there work with us.
Eleven Sports Media were very good, they looked after all the appointments and viewings at the ground, liased with a local sign company that we recommended and dealt with all the time consuming things of selling boards such as artwork and proofs.
They dealt directly with the sign company for installation and they were invoiced directly by the sign guys.
The sign company then took a ball sponsorship as a thank you.
Basically we found it a win win all round, we made a profit as did Eleven Sports and the sign guys.
I would definitely use Eleven Sports Media again, a guest of Norman Cook one of our main sponsors spoke to me last night about their service and was very complimentary.
Paul Rogers, Commercial Manager, Brighton & Hove Albion FC
Eleven Sports Media have been fantastic to work with for the 2010-2012 season. Their approach was respectful to the local market but achieved magnificent results through inventory we may never have sold. I have no hesitation in recommending Eleven's services to any other football club. I look forward to working with Eleven next season and beyond.

AFC Bournemouth commissioned Eleven Sports Media to sell some spare perimeter board sites during last season. This was a great help for AFC Bournemouth in shifting some spare capacity in the short period of time and generating revenue. We are happy with the partnership with Eleven Sports Media and look forward to working with them for the 2010-11 season.

Crystal Palace FC
I have found Eleven Sports Media to be very efficient and very open in their dealings with both myself and Crystal Palace Football Club. In a difficult market from which a lot of Clubs had been affected in the past, Matt Cairns and his whole team have been excellent to deal with, creating an element of trust right from the start. It's our first season with Eleven and I am very happy with the way the partnership is going. I hope that we can continue to work together in the 2012/13 season and beyond.

St. Helens RLFC
Eleven Sports Media have just completed a successful project selling various signage around Knowsley Rd. We were first visited by Matt who completed a Stadium visit followed by a presentation on his company. A week later a detailed proposal followed that illustrated clearly everything from pricing to sales structures. Over the next 5 weeks Eleven Sports Media completed the sale of 27 separate perimeter boards and looked after all aspects of the sale from initial meetings to board design and installation. The revenue that Eleven Sports Media brought in at a commercially challenging time was paramount for the clubs seasonal revenue. St Helens RLFC look forward to working with Eleven Sports Media for the many seasons to come.

Wakefield Wildcats RLFC
Eleven Sports Media were enlisted by the Wakefield Wildcats Commercial Team to fulfil a new area of branding and advertising within Belle Vue Stadium. Eleven Sports Media were able to fulfil the agreed areas as promised, resulting in additional advertising revenues for the club. Eleven Sport Media have been very prompt and professional in all areas of business, and I would recommend other clubs and organisations using them in the future.
Ed Curran, Commercial Manager, Wakefield Wildcats RLFC
After Eleven Sports Media initially contacted the Huddersfield Giants we arranged a meeting to conduct a stadium survey. The survey took approximately 1hr and was conducted in an extremely efficient and professional manner, during the survey Eleven Sports highlighted numerous areas which they felt would generate revenue streams for the Giants. Once Eleven and the Giants had agreed which sites would be available the ball started moving very quickly, within a week we had received Elevens proposal and after another meeting we had agreed to allow Eleven to sell sites on our behalf.
The sales staff conducted themselves in exactly the manner we would want our own sales team to work, and approached their meetings in a professional manner. After approximately six weeks Eleven had finished selling the allocation of perimeter boards which i was very impressed with and requested a further allocation which i was happy to pass over.
I would recommend any Commercial Dept to seriously consider any approach from Eleven Sports Media. In the present climate the revenue generated by our agreement with Eleven was welcomed by all concerned.
Paul Cribb, Commercial Manager, Huddersfield Giants
I have to say thank you to everyone at Eleven Sports who work on this project, we have found the service to have been very professional and the feedback from the customers we have spoken to is that the process has been very well executed. We look forward to working with Eleven again next season and in the future.

Salford City Reds
Eleven Sports Media have recently represented Salford City Reds securing new Advertisers & Sponsors to the club. The company headed up by their Director Mathew Cairns was very professional in every aspect of the partnership I would have no hesitation in recommending them to work with other sports clubs and their sales teams.

Scunthorpe United FC
Matt and his team have been proffesional throughout the process with us. We gave them the unattractive part of ground advertising, asking them to sell our back of stand boards aswell as the upper level boards outside of the TV arch and they have sold these while also requesting for more.
We were abit hesitant about working with a company we had no previous reference of, but other clubs offered good appraisals and we have received all our payments no problem, so if you have some troublesome areas you are finding difficult to sell, then definitely give them a go.
David Clay, Commercial Manager, Scunthorpe United FC
Working with Eleven Sports Media has been highly rewarding for Portsmouth Football Club.
Their experience in being able turn either spare or previously unconsidered inventory into significant revenue has been extremely useful. At the same time as bring profitable, the process has had to draw on very little of our own resources in terms of set up and fulfillment. A great business decision, glad we made it.
Lucius Peart, Commercial Director, Portsmouth Football Club
Bristol City FC
Eleven has proved an invaluable selling tool for hoardings we would never have sold. As a pro-active Commercial Department Prime TV sites and crowd facing hoardings are always sold, but Eleven pointed out other sites that could be used and sold everything they booked. They were very professional in their approach to clients, and only contacted new business. We also received a client list with contact details that we have been able to utilise for other sales opportunities. All in all a job well done!
