Sales across our hospitality areas for the season ahead are the highest they have been since 2011.Ian Dutton, Head of Commercial
After four seasons of positive growth of our increasingly popular Blues Network breakfasts, starting from the 2017/18 season, Blues supporters and local businesses can join the Blues Network Business Club and benefit from a host of fantastic opportunities.
Firstly, we will be increasing the number of networking events from our current four per year to twelve – including quarterly off-site events at various major landmarks throughout the city.
It is our aim to be the place where businesses can link with the Club to unlock networking opportunities, build contacts and meet new clients. Your membership will associate your business with this exciting new initiative and working with the Club we can connect you to other local businesses and create a mutually beneficial atmosphere to do business together.
This is also a fantastic marketing opportunity to enjoy awareness at every home game of the season on our big screen (reaching 18,000+ supporters in the stadium), TV visible LED pitchside boards (reaching supporters and a potential TV audience of millions) and matchday programme.
With the help of the Club, this is a great chance for local businesses to come together to promote your business and create long-lasting links.
Blues Network Business Club Membership includes:
- Targeted introductions to fellow members and contacts.
- Guaranteed attendance to networking events throughout the year.
- Matchday networking events.
- Tickets to our end-of-season golf event.
- Matchday advertising on the big screen and pitchside LED boards.
- Invitation to Club hosted networking table on matchdays in the Jasper Carrott Suite.
- Invitation to our Christmas luncheon.
- Use of the Blues Network Business Club logo incorporating the Club badge.

Chris Brewerton, Blues Business Development Manager, is hugely excited by the launch of the venture: "The Blues Network brand is a key way we liaise and build relationships with Birmingham and Midlands based businesses. Our major partners have really bought into the events in the past four seasons, so has the operational team here at the club, and this increase in activity across networking, advertising and sponsorship is another great way for our supporters and business contacts across the City and beyond to engage and grow their client base."
Ian Dutton, Head of Commercial, echoed the excitement around the Business Club and sees it as an indicator of the forward momentum being shown by the Club both on and off the field: "Sales across our hospitality areas for the season ahead are the highest they have been since 2011, we’ve seen all of our partners renew for this campaign and there is a positive feeling across the Club, both on and off the pitch, that all our departments are moving forward in a confident manner.
"New opportunities like this for our valued supporters and business contacts will only serve to showcase the club in a positive light."
