We’ve often though here at MMS that proportionately, stadia pay too much money for the music they use – particularly in suites and other areas away from the arena. We have been working with a number of operators during this year to help identify areas of saving and make sure fees are applied correctly. Here are the thoughts of the Operations Director of a national stadium.

I was intrigued when MMS got in touch to explain the service. We have excellent people here but to ask them to become experts in music licensing once per year isn’t always realistic.We took MMS up on their no saving, no fee offer as we felt we had nothing to lose. This turned out to be correct as they identified £26,000 in reductions across both PRS and PPL.

It’s fair to say we took a ‘belt and braces’ approach as we didn’t want to get caught out, but having their advice and knowledge of the sector has proven to be a great addition to our operation. If you’re in any doubt about what you currently pay, I would recommend inviting them in to take a look.

Our music licenses renew during the summer which, as you can imagine, is a particularly busy time for us. With all of the other activities this time of year entails the music licenses became a must do item but didn’t get the time they deserved. My Music Solutions came to the stadium, took a look around and then went away to study the previous invoices and this years forms. They came back to us a fortnight later not only to report they’d discovered £10,500 of overpayments per year, but that we had been given incorrect information during the previous review and were due an addition £3,000 per annum for last year and this.
