Hampden Park has scooped a major award at the Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards 2016 in recognition of its ‘off the pitch’ success.
The sporting venue and its catering and hospitality partner, Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, picked up Bronze in the Matchday Hospitality Award – Large Stadium category.
Over 450,000 people attend the stadium for football matches and concerts every year and the award celebrates the top-class service and range of packages that Hampden Park provides for guests.
The Stadium came runner-up to Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur Football Clubs, who took Gold and Silver respectively.
David Trotter, Account Director, Sodexo Prestige Stadia and Racecourse Scotland:
“It’s fantastic to receive such a prestigious award and provides solid recognition of our exceptional track record of delivering top customer service and providing first-class food and drink.
“As Scotland’s National Stadium, Hampden Park has incredible history and our team is committed to enhancing the match-day experience. Whether in a private executive box or in one of our exclusive lounges, we have packages to suit a range of group sizes and budgets.”
More than 370 guests attended the awards ceremony which was held at the Ricoh Arena, home to Premiership Rugby Club Wasps and Coventry City Football Club. Now in their 12th year, the Awards celebrate the efforts and dedication shown by the catering, conference and events teams at stadia across the UK.
