360 Accountants launch unique service for sports sector

Award-winning 360 Chartered Accountants has launched a brand new service aimed specifically at the sporting sector.

360’s Founder Andy Steele and Managing Director Adrian Hunter

360 Sport Finance and Mentoring comes in response to a number of approaches from both professional and semi-professional sports clubs who have already recognised the firm’s expertise in this field.  Indeed, with over 40 years’ combined experience in this sector on the 360 Board, you would be hard-pressed to find this level of skill and knowledge under one roof in the accountancy sector.

360 Founder Andy Steele has helped countless sporting clubs throughout his distinguished accountancy career with funding applications, business development grants, research and development tax credits, tax advice and capital allowance claims on stadia expenditure and improvements as well as energy efficiencies and reducing carbon footprint.

Meanwhile, Managing Director Adrian Hunter is a leading player in the UK sport, stadia and leisure sector, with over 20 years’ executive experience with blue chip and large corporate companies. 

Andy Steele said:

“Since its inception in 2010, 360 has always been at the forefront of innovation in the accountancy sector.  That’s why we are proud to announce 360 Sport Finance and Mentoring.  It’s an exciting new venture for us and we don’t think any other accountancy firm has the specific expertise we do in this field.

“As a business, we are huge supporters of professional and grassroots clubs, as well as being avid sports fans.  We would, therefore, welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can help your club going forward.  We are also more than happy for you to use us a sounding board for new initiatives and plans.”

Aimed at both professional and semi-professional sporting clubs and venues, 360 Sport Finance and Mentoring provides help and support to boost financial growth, including the development of non-event day business, which is vital for long-term sustainability.

Managing Director Adrian Hunter, who has unrivalled experience in the management of sporting venues and the opening of new stadiums in the UK, from the catering, commercial and event management side, said:

“I’ve worked in the sporting sector for over two decades and have gained a unique insight into what does and doesn’t work.  It’s a challenging sector and one that I love, so it just makes sense for us to use our expertise to launch this new service, helping clubs generate new and additional income streams, ensuring they maximise their revenue for a successful and sustainable future.”

Adrian’s expertise is in recruitment, procurement, catering agreements and pouring rights partnerships, business development through new income streams, finance, commercial agreements as well as non-event day revenue generation.
