The Greats' Room Undergoes A Makeover

2 November 2016

The Greats' Room in the Sir Tom Finney stand at Deepdale has a new look for the 2016/17 season.

As part of an overhaul of the internal decoration of the Sir Tom Finney stand, The Greats' Room, formerly 'The Great Room', now lives up to its name with images of Preston North End greats on its walls. 

The club ran a fan vote back in July to let supporters decide who should be featured on the walls of the lounge.

After fans suggested who they felt should feature in the room via email and social media, the club compiled a shortlist where supporters could then vote for seven players and one manager to feature alongside Sir Tom Finney, who was automatically selected. 

The final selection included: Alan Spavin, Alex Bruce, Alex Dawson, David Moyes, George Ross, Graham Alexander, Paul McKenna and Sean Gregan. 

As seen in the images in the gallery above, the North End legends feature in the room, along with an honour roll on one of the walls of the past winners of the club's Player of the Year award, which will be updated each year with the latest winner.

In addition to the revamp of the Greats' Room, complete with a new look bar, the directors guest lounge and the Sir Tom Finney Lounge have both undergone makeovers too.

Both areas now feature large murals on the walls, with photos of Sir Tom Finney covering the walls of the Sir Tom Finney Lounge courtesy of Wallsauce. 

The whole stand has a fresh feel to it with newly painted stairways and corridors to complete the refurbishment of the Sir Tom Finney stand. 

The Greats' Room is open for selected fixtures throughout the season. The next available games in the lounge are Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leeds United. Full details of the packages on offer for these fixtures can be found by clicking here

Speaking of the overhaul in the Sir Tom Finney Stand, head of commercial and ticketing Olivia Hanvey, said: "It's great that we have been able to give the lounges a new look, it looks refreshed with the new decor and it makes the matchday experience an even more enjoyable one for our corporate guests.

"The Greats' Room now reflects its name with the images of PNE greats on the walls and the whole room looks better for it."
