Global healthcare brand INEOS Hygienics has been named as the official hygiene supplier of Tottenham Hotspur in a deal that will see hand sanitiser dispensers fitted at the Premier League club’s home stadium.
INEOS Hygienics, a subsidiary of the multinational chemicals company, will supply the club and the stadium with touchless sanitiser dispensers as Tottenham looks to enhance safety amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The touchless dispensers have been designed to blend in with all environments and efficiently dispense hospital-grade sanitiser. The dispensers will be fitted in player dressing rooms and hospitality areas at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as well as at the club’s Enfield Training Centre and executive offices.
It will mark the first time the dispensers have been used in the Premier League and INEOS will also supply personal hand sanitiser to players across Tottenham’s first team and academy sides.
Tottenham welcomed fans back to the stadium for the derby match against Arsenal earlier in the month, but with London set to head into Tier 3 of England’s lockdown system tomorrow (Wednesday), supporters will no longer be permitted.
Fran Jones, head of partnerships at Tottenham, said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has made everybody change their behaviour and further underlined the need for good hygiene practices. It is essential that the club supports and facilitates those changes in order to create safe environments across our estate including our stadium, training centre and executive offices.
“INEOS Hygienics offers us a high purity, hospital grade sanitiser, which protects our men’s and women’s teams, ensuring they can continue to train and play matches, as well as our staff and, of course, our fans.”
INEOS Hygienics was created earlier this year during the COVID-19 pandemic to meet the global shortage of hand sanitiser. INEOS initially supplied six millions of bottles of hand sanitiser free to the NHS and hospitals across Europe and the US before shifting its focus to providing the same sanitiser to the public.
INEOS owns French Ligue 1 team OGC Nice and in August the club agreed a deal for INEOS Hygienics to become its official hygiene partner. INEOS Hygienics will meet the sanitising needs of Nice through a range of products, including hand gels, sanitiser dispensers and sanitiser sprays.
