Wiseman has supported Clubs in the Southern League for many years, delivering very high maintenance and testing standards, while at the same time providing the latest LED floodlighting technology since installing the first LED sports floodlighting in the UK.
They work with clubs at all levels to deliver projects from inception to completion, managing the planning process, finding grants and providing innovative funding solutions where grants may not be available.
Wiseman takes Corporate Social Responsibility very seriously with the owner Harry Riste Co- Founding GrassRoots Power CIC (GRP) where clubs have benefited from grants and other facility support. Recently, GRP has partnered with The Football Association ‘Club Programme’ providing software and club services which is being rolled out across the National League System.
SFL Vice Chairman Anthony Hughes said " This is the first ever partnership with a lighting company. There are numerous companies who approach us for a partnership, it’s important for us to work with companies who demonstrate that they add value to our clubs. Wiseman understands the club requirements, and, in all honesty, we truly believe they are not only interested in installing new floodlighting systems they are genuinely interested in assisting clubs with the right advice, funding and planning".
Wiseman was established in 2013 by Harry Riste, previously a volunteer Chairman at his own club. Wiseman has pioneered new standards, offering market leading LED technology helping clubs become more sustainable. They have installed Stadia LED floodlighting across the football pyramid, as well as in other sports such as rugby, athletics, hockey and tennis.
On the partnership announcement, Harry Riste said: "We’ve been aspiring to partner with the Southern League for a number of years and we’re delighted to reach this milestone. Without doubt it’s a testament to our standards being delivered that has been recognised. To become the first Southern Football League floodlighting Partner is a significant statement and we are very proud when you consider the league’s origins date back to 1894. This highlights the league’s understanding that we’re in a period where no LED product is the same, technology is ever changing and new planning rules have come into force. There has never been a more important time for clubs to receive informative, trusted advice and support.”
