Rochdale Football Club have announced a number of new businesses along with the NHS have set up shop within the Crown Oil Arena.
The development includes new offices which Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust have taken over on the first floor of Mitre House, which is in the Willbutts Lane Stand, and will house up to 30 community nurses on a daily basis.
Rochdale FC’s Academy will also be calling Mitre House their new home along with Icon Sports who have opened a new shop stocking a wide range of sportswear and sporting equipment.
The club have also announced Honour Performance Centre will soon be opening a new gym offering up bespoke personal training services to the community and run a number of gym classes.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Chief Executive, Russ Green said: “We’ve got to look at raising revenue throughout the whole year, not just on a matchday,”.
“When you look at the footballing calendar, we potentially only have 25 home games, including cup matches, throughout the season, so we need to generate income into the club during the remaining 340 days of the year.
“We’ve got facilities at the club that have been unused over the years, so we’ve had them renovated and we’re delighted to welcome these new businesses to the Crown Oil Arena.”
