Entertaining ideas

26 February 2013

CALLUM Rice is hoping to see entertainment at The County Ground on and off the pitch after joining the Robins as part of the Seebeck87 consortium.

Rice sat alongside Chairman Jed McCrory, Commercial Director Gary Hooper and General Manager Steve Murrall at Monday’s press conference.

After outlining his own background, Rice gave an insight into what he hopes to add to The County Ground experience. 

“My whole life has been spent in music and entertainment,” he said.

“I am also currently involved in the hotel business, but I have been heavily involved in the music industry. I was also a performer myself several years ago.

“We are looking to do concerts here at The County Ground and also to develop the conferencing facilities. We would like to become the hub of the community and bring Swindon together.”

Rice was present at Saturday’s home game with Preston North End and was impressed by the atmosphere generated.

“The atmosphere here on Saturday against Preston was fantastic. There was a real buzz around the place and it’s great to have come in to such a great club,” he continued.

“The team is playing fantastic football. There are 13 games to go and it’s going to be an exciting end to the season I am sure.”
