Football clubs can compete to be the best loo-ser

Published:  03 August, 2011

Football fans can enter their club into a competition to win a £100,000 makeover for the fans' loos from some of the industry's leading bathroom companies.

Organisers of the 'Best Loo-sers' competition said this will bring much-needed investment at a critical time for clubs in the Premier League, Football League or The Conference, who can all enter to win this fabulous prize.

A dedicated website – www.bestloosers.co.uk – went live this week and clubs now have eight weeks to nominate themselves. Twelve clubs will then be shortlisted and a fans’ vote will determine the winner.

The competition is the inspiration of Plumb Center, which has more than 490 branches in the UK. It has joined forces with leading bathroom companies Cistermiser, Cubicle Systems, Twyford and Franke Sissons.

These companies have been involved in supplying other sporting stadia including Twickenham, the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, and the b2net stadium in Chesterfield. Hygiene, water conservation and facilities for children and the disabled are hallmarks of their work.

The winning club will also be invited to nominate a grass roots’ team from their local community to receive a £1,000 washroom makeover.

Paul Bradshaw from Plumb Center said: “Football is a national obsession and we are really excited about this competition and the difference it will make. Loos might not be your top priority when you’re at a match but poor facilities can really spoil your day. How many times have you missed that all important goal because you’re stuck in a queue? Modern, efficient loos are not only better for the environment but get you back to the match in double-quick time!”
