Latest SB Meeting - Stadium Catering Partner


Alert Team
Staff member
- As part of best managing business challenges brought on by the pandemic, the catering, conference and banqueting department had been mothballed.

- Most match day team members have now, in the majority found work elsewhere.

-Full time/part time staff were either made redundant or redeployed to other roles.

- The challenge of building this part of the business from scratch ahead of next season, without external support is huge.

- As a result, the Club has agreed a 5-year deal with a national company who will come on board to look after all catering and venue at LNER Stadium. This is after a competitive tender process.

- Club to announce partner in due course but as part of the recruitment process, fan experience and proven ability to deliver were key criteria.

- Prior to appointing, the Club sought references from other Clubs. The feedback was universally excellent.

- Club and newly appointed catering partner aim to improve the match day offering by introducing mobile apps, pre orders and faster beer pouring points.

- Local partners will still remain a part of the match day offering, however these will be managed by the catering company, as opposed to by LCFC.

- Catering company will look after match day and non-match day venue/catering.

- Significant cap-ex investment will be provided at the start of the contract to improve various catering outlets.

I hope they cater for compassionate people who do not put fleeting taste pleasures ahead of cruelty and murder
Once Elior are operational, you are perfectly entitled to make a judgement and eat/drink accordingly. As a complete kill-joy and general miserable sod I'll not be partaking in anything alcoholic nor crap remotely resembling a burger or highly processed food.
