League Two club Oxford United have launched a new initiative aimed at getting more businesses involved at the Kassam Stadium.
The 'Business Class' networking club will offer corporate members 'platinum benefits' including premium seats at the Kassam Stadium, a listing on the club website, discounts on conference facilities at the stadium and a special plaque to be displayed in the workplace highlighting the link with the club.
The U's are following in the footsteps of several other Football League clubs who have launched similar successful schemes and Oxford United chairman Kevin Thomas said that the networking club could offer businesses a cheap alternative in the tricky financial climate, but is encouraged by season-ticket sales across the board.
Mr Thomas said: "We have not set any targets and we live in difficult times but this will definitely be attractive to some businesses. What we are trying to do is bridge the gap between season ticket holders and corporate box members.
"We are expecting to see an increase in season-ticket holders and attendances. We are very excited."
