Four Sodexo Teams Compete For Hospitality Awards

Tue 3rd May 2016 | Football Industry Events

The teams behind event management and catering at four of the UK’s most prestigious sporting venues have been nominated for a clutch of key awards.

The Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events staff at Headingley, Leeds, Merseyside’s Goodison Park, Newcastle’s St James’ Park and Brighton’s Amex stadium, are each in the running in a series of categories for the Stadium Events and Hospitality Awards 2016.

The awards celebrate the hard work and dedication that make stadia events and hospitality run seamlessly and the venues will be going head to head when the winners are announced at the Ricoh Arena, home to Premiership Rugby Club Wasps and Coventry City Football Club, on 2 June.

Headingley Carnegie Stadium – home to Leeds Rhinos and the Yorkshire County Cricket Club, Everton Football Club’s Goodison Park stadium, Newcastle United’s St James’ Park and Brighton and Hove Albion’s Amex Stadium, have all been nominated in the prestigious Overall Matchday Hospitality category.

Headingley, the Amex Stadium and St James’ Park have also each been nominated for the Non-Matchday Mystery Shopper Award, with Everton and Brighton each hoping to win the Media Choice Award, voted for by journalists and broadcasters.

In addition, Goodison Park, the Amex Stadium and St James’ Park have been nominated for Chef Team of the Year and Directors’ Choice awards with the latter two also hoping for victory in the Best Sales or Marketing Initiative Award category.

The Amex Stadium has also been nominated in the Operations Team of the Year Award category.

Each of the four will then go up against other nominees for the Matchday Hospitality Awards, with Headingley nominated in the small stadium category, Everton in the medium and St James’ Park and the Amex Stadium competing in the large stadium category.

“I am delighted that our teams at these four, major stadia, have been nominated in so many categories of these awards, which are so highly regarded within our industry,” said Natasha Carr, UK Venue & Events Marketing Manager, at Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events. 

“While I very much hope they are successful on the night, I wish all the nominees in each category the very best of luck.”
