Ineos Hygienics becomes official hand sanitiser supplier of Tottenham Hotspur
Ineos Hygienics has become the official hygiene supplier to Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The company is supplying the club and the stadium with state-of-the-art touchless sanitiser dispensers, delivering hospital grade sanitiser to Spurs' players, staff and fans, to maintain good hand hygiene and reduce the spread of viruses and bacteria.
Built to be robust yet stylish, the touchless dispensers have been designed to blend in with all environments and efficiently dispense hospital grade sanitiser. The dispensers will be used in the player dressing rooms, hospitality areas at the club's world-class stadium, as well as its Enfield Training Centre and across the club's executive offices.
This is the first time the precision-designed, Swiss-engineered dispensers have been used in the Premier League, further building on Ineos Hygienics' sporting credibility in football, Formula One, cycling and sailing.
The company is also supplying personal hand sanitiser to players across the Men's and Women's First Teams and Academy as well as staff to help keep them safe when travelling and at home.
"We're proud to be able to partner with Spurs and supply the club and the stadium with our new range of touchless dispensers and hospital grade sanitiser," says George Ratcliffe, COO of Ineos Hygienics. "As the first Premier League club to use our dispensers and hospital grade hand sanitisers, it shows the importance the club is putting on good hand hygiene to help keep the players, staff and fans safe.
Fran Jones, head of partnerships at Tottenham Hotspur says: "The pandemic has made everybody change their behaviour and further underlined the need for good hygiene practices. It is essential that the club supports and facilitates those changes in order to create safe environments across our estate including our stadium, training centre and executive offices. Ineos Hygienics offers us a high purity, hospital grade sanitiser, which protects our Men's and Women's teams ensuring they can continue to train and play matches, as well as our staff and, of course, our fans."
Created during the pandemic, Ineos Hygienics was established to meet the global shortage of hand sanitiser. As, potentially, the world's largest producer of high-purity synthetic ethanol which goes into sanitisers, Ineos built six plants in 10 days each in the UK, Europe and the US, and provided millions of bottles of product free to the NHS and hospitals across Europe and the US at the height of the pandemic.
As the world came out of lockdown over the Summer, the company shifted its focus to provide the same hospital grade sanitiser to the public, to help keep people safe and places open. It also ran a back-to-school campaign called 'Zero Days: Back to School' to support the reopening of schools across the UK by providing free resources for assemblies, classrooms and communal areas that helped inform young people about the importance of hand hygiene.
As well as supplying product to the Club, Ineos Hygienics will be working with Spurs throughout the partnership on Zero for elite sport; a programme that has been developed by Sir Dave Brailsford and helps elite sports teams reduce the number of days lost to preventable illness and injury.
