Perimeter Advertising

Perimeter Advertising

Perimeter advertising boards have appeared at football grounds for over four decades and even today are still one of the most popular forms of advertising at live sporting occasions. This form of advertising hits two differing forms of target audience, firstly at the venue of the live event and secondly via the wide exposure of television coverage.

The Blues average attendance at Roots Hall during the 2015/16 campaign saw us go through the 7,000 barrier with a total in all competitions of over 190,000.

In addition every home game was broadcast by the Channel Five and SKY TV via their weekly highlights programme.

Not only is your brand seen by the supporters who come to the stadium, there is always a chance of one of our games being shown live on SKY TV.

On average, perimeter boards are 6.09 m x 0.609 m in size and are based either pitchside or on the upper stands.


Prices for perimeter advertising boards for the 2016-17 season can be found by clicking here. Prices are for the full season however there is limited space available.

For full details and the opportunity to come to Roots Hall to pick your own preferred site please call us today. Please note that the advertiser is responsible for the artwork and manufacture of their boards however we are able to recommend a reliable signwriter.

Programme Advertising

Programme Advertising

Matchday programmes have always been a must buy for most football supporters as it serves two main purposes.

The first is to give information on the day’s teams including up to date features, action shots, player profiles, ticketing information and those all important statistics that all fans love to read before the match, at half time and then for days after the final whistle. Secondly it is kept as a memento of that special day out wherever they may have been. 

From an advertisers point of view the second point is as valid as the first as it means that the matchday programme is rarely thrown away and there are thousands of stories of supporters having hoards of them stored in their cupboards, attics or even under their beds. This means that your message continues year after year and even though the product that you are promoting may be out of fashion, your brand name won’t be. 

Statistics show that for every matchday programme sold no less than seven people read it as it is passed from hand to hand and from generation to generation which means that, in the Blues case, over 160,000 people read our matchday programme each season! 

Here at Southend United we try to limit the amount of advertising in our matchday programme to ensure that the actual product is good value for money therefore if you would like to be one of our exclusive advertisers call us today.
