Car-parking solutions company APCOA UK & Ireland has announced a new partnership with the Ricoh Arena, home to Coventry City Football Club, to manage their on-site car parking facilities.
The contract, which began on 1 August, covers the arena’s 2,000 on-site car parking bays and traffic management in the public parking areas. This new partnership is part of APCOA’s continuing expansion into the Midlands, and follows a recent contract win with NHS Walsall.
Graham Tidball, director of commercial services for APCOA UK & Ireland, said: “We are proud to be supporting [the Ricoh Arena] in maintaining their position as one of the UK’s leading event spaces. We have been selected for our pre-booking capabilities, talent management expertise and operational dexterity.
“The move also marks APCOA’s entry into the UK’s event management sector, which we are extremely excited about.”
Andy Gibb, managing director of Arena Coventry Limited (ACL), said: “We are delighted to be working with APCOA to fulfil our car parking needs, and are looking forward to a positive long-term partnership.
“As a busy and successful event space, we needed a parking partner who could fulfil all the needs of our business and customers. We are confident that APCOA, with their experience and resources, are the right company for this.”
