Event caterer Levy Restaurants UK has won a 10-year contract as official catering partner for Premier League football team Tottenham Hotspur when the club moves to its new £750m stadium in 2018.
The 61,000 capacity stadium will represent a new landmark sports and entertainment destination, with year-round facilities for match day and non-match day events.
Levy says there will be a clear focus on capitalising on the stadium’s pioneering use of technology, to ensure fans can benefit from seamless pay and pre-ordering applications.
Levy Restaurants UK says it will also seek to work with local artisan producers and suppliers while developing relationships with named and emerging chefs for the retail and hospitality concepts.
There will also be new jobs created for the area, with the partnership creating 50 full-time senior positions and 1,400 match day jobs within the catering and hospitality areas.
Levy Restaurants UK also boasts sports sector clients including Twickenham, The Championships, Wimbledon and Jockey Club Racecourses.
Andy O’Sullivan, Tottenham Hotspur director of hospitality, said: “We have undergone an extensive tender process and Levy Restaurants UK has proven themselves the outstanding candidate. They share our vision of enhancing the fan offering throughout our new stadium and their knowledge and expertise will prove invaluable in helping us deliver a world-class experience for all our visitors.”
