Sunderland Agree Long-Term Partnership With Catering Specialists

Tue 8th Jul 2014 | Football Sponsorship

Sunderland AFC has signed a new four-year partnership with national foodservice company, Bidvest 3663.

The catering service provider is part of the BFS Group, principal partner and shirt sponsor of the club. 

Bidvest 3663 will work alongside Sunderland AFC’s highly experienced catering team, as well as 1879 Events Management, the club’s external events division, in areas such as food product supply, menu development and the provision of catering equipment

The Stadium of Light caters for hundreds of thousands of customers each year, both on matchdays and through major music concerts, conferences and large-scale events such as the University of Sunderland graduation ceremonies. 

1879 Events Management operates the brasserie at Sunderland’s National Glass Centre, runs the catering operations for a range of major events, including Northern Pride and will shortly open a new seafront café and bistro, The Beach House, located within the new Pier Point development on Marine Walk, Sunderland.

SAFC’s commercial director Gary Hutchinson, said: “Bidvest 3663 are a market leader in their field and offer a proven quality solution to all of our catering needs.

"As part of the Bidvest family we already have a synergy with them and as the club’s innovative approach to catering and events continues to grow we are looking forward to further developing what is already a great partnership.”

Norman Wemyss, Managing Director of Bidvest 3663 North, said: “Working with a partner who operates within such an exciting, dynamic, diverse and extremely rewarding environment such as top flight football, is a challenge that Bidvest 3663 love to embrace.

"We look forward to another four years of working with everyone at Sunderland AFC.”
