The Stadium Events and Hospitality Awards offers unique and prestigious sponsorship opportunities. The event recognises the fantastic commitment of the matchday hospitality and specialist event teams that work tirelessly behind the scenes at major football, rugby and cricket venues across the UK & Ireland.
The last awards were held at Manchester City Football Club in 2019. See the video below.
Following the latest Government updates on the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, the awards programme hopes to resume for 2022. This is to allow our stadium venues the opportunity to re-open and operate in a more consistent manner. This will also provide the appropriate time required for both award applications and the full judging processes, which usually takes place over a period of several months. All existing paid sponsorships, award entries and ticket bookings will automatically be moved to the 2022 awards event. View the latest announcement.
The Next Awards: The next Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards event will be held on Thursday 26th May 2022 at Liverpool Football Club. This will be the 15th annual awards event, and the 20th Anniversary of Stadium Experience. More details will follow in due course.
The Audience: The awards are an excellent opportunity to raise your profile to top stadia venues (football, rugby and cricket), with over 400 guests in attendance on the night, from around 40 stadium venues across the UK and Ireland. Representatives from the majority of Stadium Experience’s 40 member venues attend this event. Guests include decision-makers from teams such as sales, conference and events, matchday hospitality, chef teams, public catering teams, operational departments and senior management attending to share the celebrations and network.
If you would like to get involved in the 2022 awards or have any queries or ideas, please contact 0345 226 5494 or email email@example.com to discuss sponsorship opportunities to suit your business needs.
