Well done to Bradford City AFC
Bradford City AFC came out on top at the recent Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards 2019, held on Thursday 20th June. Bradford City came home with the coveted Visiting Football Directors Award, an award voted for by Directors at each football club.
A celebration of the hospitality industry within stadiums
Specialist events and hospitality teams from 50+ football and rugby club venues across the UK and Ireland have celebrated their ‘off the pitch’ successes at the 14th Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards 2019.
The prestigious event, sponsored by CCS and RAK Porcelain, was held at the Etihad Stadium, home to Manchester City Football Club. The 460 guests work in conference and events, matchday hospitality, chef teams, public catering, operational departments and senior management.
The event is organised by Stadium Experience annually, and recognises the efforts and dedication shown by the catering, conference and events teams at every football and rugby stadium across the UK and Ireland. 70 football and rugby clubs were nominated for awards, with 26 different clubs scooping at least one of 42 gongs (across 14 categories).
The Visiting Football Directors Award
The Visiting Football Directors Award category is voted for by Directors at each football club. A nomination form is posted and emailed to every Club Secretary (or equivalent) asking for them to nominate the club where they had the best away experience when travelling with their team during the 2018/19 season. They are specifically asked to consider the welcome, service and catering when casting their votes. There will be an overall gold, silver and bronze award for UK & Irish football stadia.
All of the award categories are judged completely independently by industry experts. This year’s judges include HGEM and Salon Culinaire, as well as the return of the panel of senior representatives from arrangeMY, Conference News, Craig Prentice, FC Business, HBAA, and Venue Smart.
