Cardinal Security provided its best-in-class security personnel services at one of the football industry’s most prestigious events, The Football Extravaganza. This was the 20 year anniversary of the event, which raises funds for the music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins, and was held at The Grosvenor House Hotel, London on 1st September.
The Football Extravaganza is billed as ‘the greatest football night of the year’, where the sport’s great and good are honoured for their outstanding achievements throughout the season. With so many high profile players and personalities set to be in attendance, it was essential for the organisers to appoint a security company with a proven track record in delivering excellent services. David Beckham was honoured with the Legend of Football Award this year.
Cardinal Security have worked in this event for the past seven years, during which they have provided VIP security for a number of big names including Sir Alex Ferguson, Eric Cantona, Jose Mourinho and Pele, and the team has never failed to provide exceptional service. It isn’t an easy evening to manage as there are so many well-known faces involved, which naturally poses a greater security risk. Also, as the event is in aid of charity, Cardinal provides a number of officers free-of-charge.
Jason Trigg, CEO added: “It’s been a fantastic coup for us to provide our security services to The Football Extravaganza for the past seven years, and we were delighted to have been appointed once again for 2015. We’re very proud of the reputation that we have built up for our manned guarding services over the years and this high-profile contract is testament to our experience and expertise in this area.”
