Sodexo has been awarded an eight-year catering deal at the Liberty Stadium, home of Swansea City Football Club and professional rugby union team, The Ospreys.
The deal, which commences in June 2019, will see Sodexo providing catering on event days throughout the stadium in all lounges and general admission areas.
As part of the agreement, Sodexo will invest in new digital screens and a stadium wide EPOS system to support speed of service in the public areas alongside improved audio-visual facilities in the lounges and new local food offers.
A new hospitality experience will be launched in 2020 alongside enhanced general admission offers and a further facility investment in a new bar area.
Sodexo has also won the contract for non-match day sales to help drive additional revenue for the stadium.
Commenting on the contract award, Chris Bray, CEO Sports & Leisure Sodexo UK & Ireland, said: “This new partnership with Swansea City Football Club will see Sodexo bring its world-leading expertise in catering and venue and event management to South Wales. Working with Swansea City gives us a great opportunity to deliver a fantastic experience for spectators and host a wide range of conferences and events on non-matchdays.
“At our other stadiums we have strong relationships with the local community, and the Liberty Stadium will be no exception. We look forward to bringing fresh, innovative, responsibly-sourced local produce to stadium visitors.”
