Hotel Football is a football-themed hotel overlooking Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United F.C. with its address on Sir Matt Busby Way. The hotel is owned by former players Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Phil Neville and Gary Neville as well as the GG Hospitality Management Company. The hotel was built at a cost of £24m and features 133 rooms, a restaurant called Cafe Football and a five-a-side football pitch on the roof.
The ten-storey hotel of course requires water to get to all the rooms on every floor and to do that requires pressure boosting equipment to make sure the water supply is reliable. For the last few years the hotel has relied on a Wilo Si Boost pumping set located in the basement plant room of the hotel.
“It’s great to be associated with the hotel and these well-loved footballers from the Class of ‘92,” says Wilo’s marketing manager Morgan Warren-Ross. “Our reliable and cost effective pressure boosting equipment is in use across the UK and Ireland, in many hotels and high rise apartment blocks, but also used for a number of other end uses that are not immediately obvious – including Croke Park in Dublin, Chester Zoo and the Midlothian Snowsport Centre outside Edinburgh – where the equipment provides the misting required to keep the artificial ski slope slippy!”
