The Etihad Stadium scoops top accolades at The Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards
Manchester City Football Club with its catering and hospitality partner, F3, took home three awards at the recent Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards.
Manchester City and F3 were recognised with the Best Large Stadium Hospitality Award, Media Choice Award and Matchday Hospitality Award.
The prestigious national awards ceremony, which took place at the Ricoh Arena, were presented in recognition of the impact that operations, food, beverage, service, and sales & marketing make to match day and non-match day experiences.
The Media Choice Award category was voted for by visiting local and national media who acknowledged Manchester City for the club’s warmth of welcome and excellence of food.
While the Matchday Hospitality Award was based on feedback from professional Salon Culinaire chef judges who experienced hospitality in clubs across the UK.
Boasting state-of-the-art bars, restaurants, and boxes, the recently expanded Etihad Stadium provides customers with an unrivalled service and a matchday experience like no other.
Commenting on the awards, Director of Sales for Manchester City, Caroline McEleney, said:
“Manchester City has always prided itself on its attention to detail and commitment to excellence, ensuring every visitor has a truly memorable experience, each time they visit the Etihad Stadium.
We’re delighted be recognised by fellow peers within the industry, and look forward to continuing to provide a world class service in association with F3.”
Neil Worcester, Managing Director from F3 added:

The judges commented:
“The hospitality dining experience was excellent and the service was perfect. Manchester City and F3 are a professional, stylish outfit, giving a high class, top end product, offering real value for money.”
