Pitch Side Signs For Rugby Club
Preston Grasshoppers RUFC is a long established Preston sporting institution with a history dating back to the middle of the nineteenth century. Former “Hoppers” luminaries include Wade Dooley, Iain Balshaw, Steve Borthwick and Alex Sanderson all of who went on to play for England.
This week several staff members from Lustalux attended the grand opening of the brand new Preston Grasshoppers all weather pitch. Lustalux is delighted to have been chosen by the RFU to provide the stadium perimeter and grandstand advertising and sponsorship signage. The event was also attended by the England rugby coach Eddie Jones who gave a speech before declaring the pitch open and then going on to give some of the club’s youngsters a training session to remember.
The pitch is part of Rugby Football Union’s 365 programme, 365 being the number of days a year that the all-weather pitch is now useable. Preston Grasshoppers were chosen along with several other clubs from across England to receive financial assistance from the RFU for the development. Not only can the pitch now be used all year round, it will now be available to the community as a whole to encourage participation in Rugby and to generate additional income for the club.
Lustalux manufactured and installed over fifty perimeter and grandstand signs for the club’s Lightfoot Green ground in readiness for the grand opening thus providing the finishing touch to a great facility.

Just a huge thankyou from me personally and the RFU for your efforts to get the boards installed for Monday – it was hugely appreciated. They certainly look good from the photos I’ve seen.TM - The Rugby Football Union
