Five-a-side football operator Powerleague is looking to an uplift from this year's World Cup as it continues to trade strongly ahead of its interim results next month.
The Scottish-based group numbers sites in Halesowen and Aston among the 32 pitches it operates across the country.
As scheduled, two new centres were opened in the first half of the financial year in Kilmarnock and Basingstoke and additional pitches have been added at existing centres.
"The company continues to trade strongly and is on target to open a third new centre in Coventry in May, prior to the start of the 2006 World Cup," it said in a statement.
"This will bring the total number of Powerleague centres to 33."
Last September, in its first full year results after listing on AIM, Powerleague achieved pretax profits of £2.6 million on sales of £17.5 million.
It will be report its interim results on February 28.
Chief executive Sean Tracey said: "We expect a major benefit from the World Cup with more people wanting to play football and an increase in commercial activity and sponsors.
"Although I am Scottish and it pains me to say it, I would love England to win the World Cup. It would be great for the business." ..SUPL:
