Refurbishment works get underway at Airdrieonians’ Excelsior Stadium in preparation for “The Wonderful Crazy Night” tour of Elton John. The Moffat Group are excited to be part of this iconic evening and have started work on the electrical testing of the stadium to upgrade the facilities and ensure the best possible experience for all spectators. Working closely with The Bell Group the stadium is having a complete refurbishment with teams of painters on site for the past few weeks.
Paul Hetherington, Excelsior Stadium’s managing director, told the Advertiser: “We have embarked on a redecoration programme to make sure that the stadium is looking its best so that it’s a good advert for Airdrie and the stadium as a venue – and to encourage other big acts to come to our town.
“I’m thoroughly looking forward to the concert itself. We have been working with Moffat and Bells over the past few weeks, two big Airdrie-based companies. It has been all hands on deck and will continue to be so until the big day on June 24.”
Craig Moffat, managing director of Moffat Group, has offered his company’s services for free. He explained: “The concert will be fabulous; it will be a great event for Airdrie. It has taken a fair bit of resources and time and effort to put it together. I’ve know Paul [Hetherington] from school and when he asked us to help out I was happy to volunteer our services. Overall we’ve had about half a dozen guys working on the stadium on all the electrical and mechanical work.
“We have helped to ensure that their safety standards are up to scratch.”
