This is Moneyball: Sports teams going green! Are fans and clubs becoming more eco-conscious?
Pack those Thermos flasks, get on your bike and gobble down a veggie burger while watching the big match - this week, we take a look at the green revolution and how that filters down to sport. Broadcaster Georgie Frost and This is Money assistant editor Lee Boyce talk about what clubs are doing to reduce their environmental impact and whether it makes business sense to do so. Joining us is Julian Kirby from Friends of the Earth to reveal what fans and clubs can do to become greener, while Surrey Cricket chief executive Richard Gould explains the changes it's making. We go into detail about League Two club Forest Green Rovers who have fully embraced the green movement via chairman - and chief executive of Ecotricity - Dale Vince. Can clubs save much by trimming energy bills, would a carbon footprint league table be a good plan for sports clubs and could collapsible, reusable pint cups with a team emblem emblazoned on take-off?
