The MC for the evening was Louisa Preston of BBC London News who herself, was a graduate from Nottingham and many visitors had travelled from far and wide to attend the event. Ben Sedgemore, the Games Director, gave a presentation on the Games and spoke in glowing terms of the quality of facilities that he had been able to choose from in the region, “we have been fortunate to stage the Games in some wonderful Cities around the world but rarely have we seen an array of sporting facilities of the quality and number that Nottingham possesses. We know that all of the participants will be blown away by what they find in Nottingham and we are all aiming to make this the best UK Corporate Games in its 20 year history”.  The presentation described the 23 sports and host of celebrations that make up Europe’s largest multisport festival for businesses.  Mr Sedgemore proclaimed that the Games delivers genuine opportunity for everyone involved, stating that there is something for everyone to enjoy in the Games, whether you are old or young and regardless of how fit or sporty you are.  The Games is totally inclusive and open to everyone.

Other speakers on the night included Kate Lockhart representing the Games Official Charity, the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre.  Kate recounted how happy they are that they have been selected as the Official Charity for the Games.  Andrew May, General Manager at Nottingham Conferences explained that they are keen to see the outstanding facilities at the University fully utilised by the students but also community and business groups as they can all benefit from the massive investment that has taken place.

The final message was delivered by Stuart Mather, Community Relations & Employee Engagement Manager at Capital One.  Capital One entered a team of 40 into the Corporate Games in Liverpool this year but they can’t wait to participate in the Games on “Home Soil” in Nottingham from the 6th-9th July.  Stuart said “We had a fabulous experience in the Games this year.  The Games is wonderful for team building and it was professionally administered but really fun to be involved in too with the mixture of sport and celebrations.  We are looking to enter between 100 and 200 entrants this year and we would have no hesitation in recommending the Games to all businesses”.

Visitors also had a chance to tour the impressive new facility which will house the Games SuperCentre and almost all of the indoor sports on the packed Games programme.

Headquartered in Villeneuve D’Ascq, France, the company was founded in 1976 and quickly grew over a short space of time, spreading into Europe, making its debut appearance into the UK in the year 2000 and going on to challenge new markets in South America, Russia and Asia.

With its specialism in sporting goods, its growing popularity is earned through the stock and supply of over 30,000 different products across 70+ unique sports – as well as the recognition of over 130 global brands both in-store and online.

As a multi-platform sports equipment and clothing provider, Decathlon is undoubtedly a fantastic addition to our list of Games Champions.  Rival teams are anxious to see what the Decathlon team will be entering this July, where 100 lucky staff will get the opportunity to represent Decathlon at the Corporate Games across a variety of different sports.

Doug White, National Sales Manager for the Games commented:

“Decathlon is a perfect match for the Corporate Games, as it represents the broadest selection of sporting disciplines, offering precision equipment and clothing for both the elite and the amateur athlete alike.  We are excited to see what the Decathlon team will bring to the table at this July’s event – we know several of our teams are eagerly anticipating some good solid competition from the sports retail giants.”
