A champion is someone who gets up when he can't.

— Jack Dempsey —

Some people believe football is a matter of life and death. I'm very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.

— Bill Shankly —

Never give up! Failure and rejection are only the first step to succeeding.

— Jim Valvano —

They are who we thought they were!

— Dennis Green —

Don't measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished your ability.

— John Wooden —

To be the man, you have to beat the man.

— Ric Flair —

Treat a person as he is, and he will remain as he is. Treat him as he could be, and he will become what he should be.

— Jimmy Johnson —

The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a man's determination.

— Tommy Lasorda —

The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don't play together, the club won't be worth a dime.

— Babe Ruth —

The time when there is no one there to feel sorry for you or to cheer for you is when a player is made.

— Tim Duncan —

The latest electro-acoustic sound system covers all areas of the stadium and is decentralised which limits echoing. Hospitality suites and VIP lounges, which overlook the pitch area, are also ideal venues for the corporate entertainment and hospitality.
