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 2018 Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards will be held on 31st May 2018 at Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club.

The awards are an excellent opportunity to raise your profile to top stadia venues, with around 400 guests in attendance on the night.  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.  See a short video of the 2017 awards at Liverpool Football Club here.
