Field Mill becomes the One Call Stadium
mansfieldtown.net, Mon 02 Apr 2012

We are pleased to announce that a deal has been agreed to rename our home ground the One Call Stadium


The deal will provide significant revenue to the club and will be essential to our development both on and off the pitch.

Chairman John Radford, also owner of the One Call Group, started the business in 1995. The Mansfield-born businessman has since developed the company into one of the UK's fastest growing insurance providers.

Said Mr Radford: "This will help to secure the long-term future of the club. Through this sponsorship, One Call will make a substantial financial investment to support Mansfield Town Football Club.

"It has been a tough decision, but one which is necessary for our long-term future. The decision has been made after consultation with our supporters and whilst the name of Field Mill as our home will always be in our hearts, I trust our fans will understand our decision to rename the stadium in the long-term interests of the Football Club. The re-naming also represents a fresh start for the club following the capture of the ground earlier this month."

Added Mr Radford, who has already invested over £3m into the club since taking over in September 2010: "This is a positive piece of news for the whole club and is another step in the right direction. Since taking over the club, it has been my aim to establish the Stags at the hub of the Mansfield community and with sponsorship deals such as this, coupled with the team riding high in the table, this is a great time to be a Stags' fan."

Mr Radford has also announced that One Call will guarantee to beat the existing renewal quote of all Mansfield Town Season Ticket holders by £100, applying to Car Insurance. Additionally, One Call will donate £100 to the Football Club for every policy that is incepted through this offer

New financial rules will mean though that naming the ground will allow JR to pump more money in.
