The landmark collaboration strengthens Chelsea’s current relationship with Levy Restaurants UK to provide hospitality to more than 50,000 delegates attending meetings, exhibitions, conferences and events at the iconic Stamford Bridge venue each year in addition to 60,000 corporate annual hospitality guests.
The newly formed partnership will see Levy Restaurants UK also providing hospitality catering across Chelsea Football Club’s collection of venue spaces including 24 function rooms and 60 syndicate rooms within the stadium, as well as onsite music venue Under The Bridge, two restaurants, two hotels from Millennium and Copthorne, the Chelsea Health Club and Spa and the club’s Cobham Training Ground.
The relationship has been recognised in a co-branding exercise across the business that reinforces the relationship between the two global industry leaders, reflecting the strength of the partnership and underlining both organisations’ shared values of innovation, performance, community and quality.
Ron Gourlay, Chief Executive of Chelsea Football Club, said: “We are delighted to be working closely alongside Levy Restaurants to enhance the experience of the wide array of visitors we welcome to Stamford Bridge throughout the year. They have developed a reputation for excellence in events at sporting venues and I look forward to a successful partnership.”
