Alpha provide security for first England friendly at the Riverside Stadium

In a very proud moment for Alpha Security Group, the company were asked to provide the security England’s friendly at the Riverside Stadium.

This is the first game of international football the squad have played since the beginning of the pandemic, and whilst it’s set to excite and raise tensions high, Alpha security will, as always, provide a high-quality, highly professional manner of service in order to keep the players, fans and workers safe, and allow the games to run smoothly.

A proud moment for the area, the Riverside are set to host two England friendlies in the run up to the European Football Championship. Gareth Southgate’s men will face Austria on the 2nd of June, followed by Romania on the 6th! The Riverside was selected as a Covid secure venue by the government, something Alpha security will promise to maintain and abide by.

It is the first football event fans will be able to attend since before the pandemic, with the Football Association stating that ‘ticketing arrangements will be communicated should it be deemed safe for fans to attend’. With that in my mind, Alpha security’s priority will be for the match to go ahead for everyone to enjoy, all whilst staying safe.
