Exciting Partnership to Make Market Leading Sports Facilities More Accessible

Exclusive New Partnership Between Buckingham Leasing and S&C Slatter!

Buckingham Leasing are excited to announce our exclusive new partnership with market leading sports construction group S & C Slatter.

As a leading supplier of business and asset finance, Buckingham Leasing were delighted at the opportunity to work closely with the leading sports construction specialists.

S&C Slatter is an industry leading sports contractor with 30 years’ experience in the design, construction and maintenance of artificial turf pitches, athletics tracks and playing courts.

Working across the sports, leisure and education sectors, S & C Slatter was the world’s first FIH Certified Field Builder, is a construction partner of the Football Foundation AGP Framework and delivered the first Major League Baseball field in Europe.

Experienced in constructing artificial pitches to major governing body performance standards including FIFA Quality Pro, FIH Global and World Rugby Regulation 22, the company possesses an impressive portfolio spanning local to global elite level sport. Clients include Everton Football Club, The John Madejski Academy, Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate, Freedom Leisure and The University of Oxford.

Following a challenging year, companies across the country have seen their cashflow’s strained and their budgets reduced. This partnership is a great opportunity to support S & C Slatter in providing market leading facilities to a broad range of customers in the aim of making exercise accessible for all.

This allegiance will allow clients (subject to approval) to fund, construct and maintain sports pitches, athletics tracks and playing courts through one dedicated point of contact.


What Finance Options are Available?

  • Hire Purchase Agreements (recommended for VAT registered organisations)
  • Finance Leases (recommended for non-VAT registered organisations)
  • Operating Leases (recommended for Academy and State Schools)

With competitive rates available, the partnership will allow schools, universities, clubs and councils to fund, construct and utilise market leading sports facilities with reduced up-front costs. In addition, the revenue which can be generated from hiring out (case study available on request) the pitch can not only cover the expense but also make a good level of profit which can be reinvested into grassroots sport.

Our three finance options provide an alternative, affordable route for sports facility funding, construction and maintenance. The cost of constructing a sports facility can be daunting as it requires a large capital outlay if paid upfront. Financing  the facility over 1-7 years will spread the cost and in turn improve cash flow, reduce your tax expense and assists in forecasting business expenditure.


The Partnership

Customers will benefit from both companies’ commitment to excellence and innovation, teamed with 50+ years’ combined heritage in delivering first-class sporting facilities.
