Leeds United has announced a partnership with Levy Restaurants, part of the Compass Group to provide the catering on match days and non-match days and will be responsible for the food and drink throughout the club's retail concessions, its hospitality provision and its conference and banqueting offering.
Shaun Harvey, Chief Executive said: "We have agreed a partnership arrangement with Compass for an initial period of five years from 1 October 2012. The time between now and the commencement date will be utilised to ensure a seamless transition for our fans on match days and our conference and banqueting customers on non-match days. Our talented existing staff will become part of the Compass team at Elland Road.
"We anticipate that Compass' expert sales team will help increase the demand for our facilities on non-match days from the national market, and believe their experience in this specialist sector will assist us in our desire to remain the number one choice in Leeds for conference and banqueting events."
Neil MacLaurin, Business Development Director of Compass said: "We are delighted to have established this partnership with Leeds United Football Club. We are committed to building on the legacy of this historic club and look forward to working with the team to deliver an amazing match day and non match day experience by enhancing the high standards that are already in place.
