Independent Judging

Each award category is independently judged by industry experts – Stadium Experience does not judge any of the awards.  Some categories are voted for by stadium directors, VCA Consulting UK judge the Non-Matchday Mystery Shopper Award, and Salon Culinaire judge the Chef Team Award.  The majority of categories are decided by a team of experts with many years experience in their fields, which vote for their top 3 entries.  Read more about the 2024 judging teams.
