Apologies to both Stoke City and Solihull Ladies for wvpTV's difficulty filming Sundays game at Springbank Park, Yarnfield.
Filming was agreed with both clubs key officials in advance, we turned up and setup to film the game highlights for Women's Game Promotion, Sponsorship Development and Women's Soccer Scene TV.
Unfortunately, just before the game, the grounds man present explained to us that we could not film on the grounds of "child protection", the fact that both women's clubs had no child protection issues over being filmed was irrelevant as was the fact that only the women's match would be in camera shot at all times and no person would be identified. The grounds man volunteered that he did not know the child protection rules so could not say what was ok.
The grounds man then took another tack, he explained, it was the owner's policy to prevent filming without written permission in advance, even if the ground was being hired for women's football purposes. He explained the hirer (the women's club) had signed a contract. Apparently neither club had been informed by Springbank Park of the restriction on filming when booking the ground.
The lesson for clubs in this appears to be, ask for all terms and conditions in advance (those not disclosed may not apply), otherwise clubs and their spectators could find they are in trouble for using cameras or subject to some other surprise restrictions.
wvpTV have written to the owner of SpringBank Park inviting him to voluntarily contribute the wasted sponsorship and costs to help ensure the clubs get the benefit of a second opportunity.
