24 Feb 2021: Businessman, battling RBS, donates COVID-19 sterilization pods to Wembley
Oliver Morley, who is battling the Royal Bank of Scotland in the Supreme Court, donated sterilization boxes to Wembley to help contribute toward the return of live sports.
The majority of sports fans across the country have been told to avoid stadiums since March 2020, and with normality slowly creeping up, Morley donated SpectrumX boxes, designed and developed by him, to Wembley stadium.
Fact: Upcoming games at the Wembley stadium
The FA Cup semi-finals and final, as well as the Carabao Cup final, are due to be played at Wembley in the coming months. It would be great to see fans return to the home of football for those games.
Sterilization process: Sterilization will ensure a safe environment amidst the pandemic
The sterilization pods are worth over £100,000 each and Oliver has worked closely with Eddie Hearn, where the boxes were successfully used for the Anthony Joshua v/s Kubrat Pulev fight.
The boxes work by spraying a non-alcoholic antibacterial spray on the person before they enter the stadium. This will ensure that there are no germs on people's clothes and stadiums are a safe environment.
Oliver speaks: Fans' support is an important part of sporting events
Oliver is set to appear in the Supreme Court tomorrow as his battle with RBS continues. He also competes in the British GT Championship, racing for Black Falcon.
Speaking about his proposal to the FA, he said, "Watching sporting events without fans is tough. The atmosphere is a crucial part of the game and brings life to the dullest of games."
Fact: Should do everything to bring in spectators: Oliver
"That is why I am offering to donate Spectrum boxes to Wembley. We should try and get fans in the ground for the spectacular occasions that are the FA Cup semi-finals and final as well as the Carabao Cup final," he said.
