After first working with TMG Sport (now GD Sport) during their UEFA European campaign the club approached us to manage their complete travel spend in the summer of 2011 after experiencing poor and inconsistent service from their incumbent, global supplier.

Transactions are increasing 20% year on year.
The Club were assigned a dedicated travel team to manage their requirements with experts available to take care of each specific area of their travel needs i.e. business travel expert, group travel expert, team travel expert etc. We have implemented and policed a company travel policy, put in place a robust approval processes that meet the Club’s exact needs. Our experience within the football travel industry enables us to work to specifically tailored systems and processes that ensure we are able to meet, and exceed, their requirements for flexibility and last minute bookings and changes which are synonymous with the football industry.
We are unable to report on actual savings as the previous supplier did not provide Management Information.
