- GRIDSERVE will be Fulham Football Club’s electric vehicle partner for the 2023/2024 and 2024/2025 season.

Fulham Football Club goes electric with GRIDSERVE
With a new partnership launched with UK chargepoint operator GRIDSERVE, Fulham FC is set to heavily decarbonise its transport operations. The deal includes a fleet of Tesla Model Ys for the club, as well as 22kW EV chargers installed at its home turf stadium and nearby training ground. The EV partnership will go through from the 2023/24 season into the 2024/25 season.
Ten chargers will be installed in total, and those at the training ground will be open for visitors to use with options for contactless payment.
The partnership is particularly attractive when considering the upcoming expansion of London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone, which will include Fulham FC’s training ground within the zone, in addition to its Craven Cottage stadium which is already inside the catchment. This should encourage frequent visitors of the ground to switch to ULEZ-complaint electric vehicles.
Fulham FC employees will also now be able to take advantage of GRIDSERVE’s EV salary sacrifice scheme, to help further boost this uptake.
How else is Fulham pushing its sustainability drive?
In addition, all energy used by the football club comes from renewable sources. The club adopts a zero waste to landfill policy, and its limited edition kit is made from 100% recycled plastic.
The partnership is also an opportunity for encouraging wider EV adoption. With a prominent charging network now partnering up with a Premier League team, we would not be surprised to see similar partnerships within the sports world in the near future.
“Fulham FC may be London’s Original Football Club but it’s well and truly thinking of the future with how it approaches sustainability – and that’s why the club is a perfect fit for us. We hope the partnership will not only help decarbonise the team’s activities off the pitch, but also encourage fans to make the switch, in turn helping us to move the needle on climate change.”
