St James' Park Pays Tribute To Sir Bobby Robson

Mon 27th Apr 2015 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

One of football’s most legendary figures has been honoured at Newcastle’s St James’ Park.

The stadium has unveiled its newly refurbished Sir Bobby Robson Suite, specially designed and decorated in tribute to the late England and Newcastle United manager.

The walls of the suite, which is situated on level 3 of the stadium, have been lined with images of Sir Bobby from his playing days and managerial career at clubs such as Fulham, West Bromwich Albion, Ipswich Town, PSV Eindhoven, Sporting Lisbon, FC Porto, Barcelona, England and Newcastle United.

Samantha Doyle, sales and marketing manager for Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events which manages conferencing and events at St James’ Park, said: “Sir Bobby Robson held a very special place in the hearts, not just of Newcastle United supporters, but of football fans the world over and this suite is a lovely and lasting tribute to him.”

Along with the Sir Bobby Robson suite, St James’ Park boasts one of the biggest banqueting suites in the region, capable of holding up to 1000 guests.
