Environmental Turf Technology sponsors IOG Industry Award

Environmental Turf Technology (ETT) is sponsoring the inaugural Alex R Millar Award for the professional football grounds management team of the year, at this year's IOG Industry Awards in November.

ETT’s managing director Richard Lawrence and sales manager Richard Fortmuller said the company’s sponsorship of the award is "completely appropriate bearing in mind our reputation throughout the UK football industry."

They added:  "We are especially pleased to be involved with this award which has been established this year in honour of the IOG’s late chairman, Alex Millar.

"A revered groundscare professional, Alex was also a keen follower of football – being a fan of Rangers FC – and the award is a fitting tribute not only to him but also to the expertise of the grounds management teams it is designed to acknowledge."

The award will be presented at the IOG Industry Awards at SWALEC Stadium, Cardiff on Thursday November 25.  

It will be voted for by professional football grounds management teams from throughout the UK; the groundsmen will be voting for fellow groundsmen in the same way footballers vote for player of the year awards.
