Greene King IPA launches new Fastpour system for Harlequins fans!
Harlequins' home fixture this Saturday 3rd October 2009 against Bath Rugby marks the introduction of the new "fast pour" stadium dispense equipment into the 'Kings' and 'Players Lounge' bars in the Etihad Stand.
The Fastpour system reduces pint pour time by a third from 24 seconds to eight seconds, getting fans back to their seats quicker to ensure they don't miss any action. Fans coming to the game this Saturday will be the first to experience the new system.
Harlequins' Chief Executive Mark Evans said, "We are delighted and extremely grateful for Greene King's investment to help improve the facilities we offer our fans at the Twickenham Stoop. Bar waiting times are always an issue in sports stadia, especially just before kick-off and at half-time, and the new fast-pour system will provide our supporters with a much improved service in the future."
Commenting on the new system Joe Parks, Free Trade Director of Greene King Brewing Company said; "We're delighted that through feedback from the Harlequins supporters we have been able to deliver this fantastic new Fastpour system which will mean fans spend less time queuing at the bar and more time in their seats watching the game."
Greene King has also made considerable investment in the Stoop's new South Stand, opening for the first time this Saturday. The South Stand will boast a new and improved Quins Head - Harlequins very own cask ale bar - and, although this will not be open in time for this weekend's fixture, this should hopefully be unveiled to fans on Saturday 17th October when Harlequins host Toulouse in the Heineken Cup.
During week commencing 22nd April Harlequins will launch an innovative, new Membership Scheme which will replace the existing Season Ticket Holder Programme. Further details of the scheme will be announced in due course.
