Sponsorship Opportunities

The Stadium Events and Hospitality Awards recognise the fantastic commitment of the matchday hospitality and specialist event teams that work tirelessly behind the scenes at major football and rugby stadium venues across the UK & Ireland.

The awards are an excellent opportunity to raise your profile to top stadia venues, with around 480 guests in attendance on the night.  Guests include decision-makers from teams such as conference and events, matchday hospitality, chef teams, public catering teams, operational departments and senior management attending to share the celebrations and network.  See a short video of the 2017 awards at Liverpool Football Club here.

The 2017 sponsorship opportunities are outlined below.  If you would like to get involved or have any queries, please contact 0345 226 5494 or email office@stadiumexperience.com.  The 2018 opportunities will be available this Autumn.
