Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards Cancelled for 2020

2020 Awards Cancelled

The Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards 2020 have been cancelled. In light of the continuing situation regarding the COVID-19 Coronavirus, Stadium Experience (the awards organisers) has taken the difficult decision to formally cancel the Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards for 2020.  The next awards will be held in Summer 2021 at Liverpool Football Club.   The new date will be decided once more information and Government guidance becomes available, and match fixtures are finalised for the 2020/21 season.

All existing paid sponsorships, award entries and ticket bookings will automatically be moved to the new 2021 awards event, unless otherwise indicated.  See more about the awards sponsorship details.

Award Categories

The majority of existing 2020 entries (that have been paid for) will be included in the new awards in 2021.  Case studies will simply cover a two year time period, rather than the usual one year.  Entrants are permitted to adjust and re-submit current entries.  The entry deadline will be in Spring 2021 as usual.

A third of the clubs competing in the Matchday Hospitality Awards were judged before matches were postponed due to COVID-19.  The clubs where judging has been completed will be provided with the full report and judges feedback as usual.  Matchday Hospitality Award entries for the 2021 awards will begin from scratch to ensure a fair competition across the board.  Judges will be available to attend matches as soon as fixtures resume with hospitality offerings.

The Chef Team of the Year Award competition was completed in March 2020.  The results of this will be shared, with the formal recognition included at the 2021 awards.  See the Chef Team of the Year Award announcement.
