Toast football legends with Windsor Park this Christmas

The National Football Stadium at Windsor Park
One of Belfast’s most unique venues, The National Football Stadium at Windsor Park, is kicking off the festive season by offering a football themed festive dining event, perfect for avid sports fans.  
This December, the venue’s catering and events partner, Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, is hosting a series of Christmas lunches incorporating a behind the scenes tour of the refurbished stadium and a delicious two course meal.


Perfect for football fans, families or corporate groups looking for a unique Christmas celebration, the special ‘Legendary Festive Fridays’ will take place on Friday 7, 14 and 21 December. Guests will be treated to a guided tour of the on-site Education and Heritage Centre, where they will hear the unique story of Northern Irish football, re-live the atmosphere of famous matches and even have the chance to try and score a penalty past Northern Ireland Legend Pat Jennings, before sitting down to a seasonal buffet lunch.  

Created by head chef Fritz Machala, the Christmas lunch features a choice of three lavish main courses: traditional roasted turkey with ham and stuffing, cocktail sausages and rich turkey gravy; pan fried hake served with buttered greens and mussel and saffron cream; or cranberry, mushroom and chestnut arancini with a winter squash velouté. A sumptuous dessert of apple and plum pudding, with fresh cream and brandy sauce anglaise, will be served for dessert.  

Derek Coulter, Account Manager, Sports, Leisure and Travel at Sodexo said: “Christmas is a special time of year and for 2018, we wanted to offer a fully immersive festive dining experience for football fans. Our ‘Legendary Festive Fridays’ are a great opportunity to go behind the scenes of Northern Irish football, before sitting down to enjoy a delicious festive themed lunch with friends, family or colleagues  

“The Stadium’s one-of-a-kind memorabilia, heritage and event spaces make Windsor Park a fantastic destination for any celebration.”  

Tickets for the ‘Legendary Festive Fridays’ lunch with heritage tour are available for just £35 per person.  

For those seeking a more traditional Christmas party, the venue is also hosting a series of ‘Legendary Party Nights’. Packages start at just £42.50 per person and include an arrival drink, lavish four course menu and live DJ entertainment, with party games, until 1am.
