AFC Bournemouth Case Study

AFC Bournemouth is a professional football club based in Bournemouth, Dorset, that plays in the Premier League. Formed in 1890 as Boscombe St. John’s Institute F.C., the Club adopted its current name in 1972. Nicknamed The Cherries, since 1910 Bournemouth have played their home games at Dean Court.

Together anything is possible

Focusing on its motto, ‘Together, anything is possible’ is the Club’s thinking behind installing several EauVation filtered water systems.

Paul Fudge, Head of Catering Operations explained: “At the Club we are conscious of the need to reduce the amount of single use plastic being used by our staff, and our players.  Our solution – we have sited EauVation systems throughout the Club and are currently looking to install more systems for visitors to the stadium.

By all accounts …

Within the Club’s accounts department an EauVation SmartTap has been installed giving staff access to boiling and chilled water.  Staff are able to enjoy the purest of drinking water, purer than bottled water brands, and when making tea or coffee the flavour is enhanced too.

Question time …

The Media Suite at the Club, where all of the pre match interviews take place, has been installed with EauVation’s TableTop system, a perfect option for replacing pre-bottled water. With its high-performance ice-bank refrigerator it delivers large volumes of water at consistently low temperatures, ideal for the media team and press when carrying out a lengthy interview!

The system’s modern, elegant and compact design has been an ideal solution suite, not only by providing top quality, filtered water on demand but also eliminating the need for storage, transportation and recycling expensive pre-bottled water.

The same system has been installed in the gym and in the players’ lounge, giving players’ access to delicious, chilled, filtered water on demand.  By all accounts - the players love it!

Boot it …

The EauVation undercounter system has been installed in the Club’s boot room and is a perfect solution as there is limited space. The compact system fits perfectly and supplies premium quality, chilled, filtered water to a stylish bar tap.  The players have been making the most of this system by mixing the water with their nutritional powders and protein shakes.

Branded Bournemouth Football Club water bottles …

At Bournemouth Football Club there are several rooms, suites and a board room which are available to hire for meetings and conferences. Within this area an EauVation undercounter system has been installed and there are Bournemouth Football Club branded water bottles for guests to use throughout their meeting or conference.

Next steps

The Club is now looking to install several more EauVation systems in the concourses at the stadium to provide chilled, filtered water to all of the Club’s visitors.  These will be the new EauVation systems which will be either freestanding or built into a wall and these will have a display screen which the Club will be able to advertise on.
