Notts County have been nominated alongside a number of Premier League and national stadia venues for the 2018 Overall Matchday Hospitality Award.
The nomination is one of three for the Magpies, who are also in contention to win the Visiting Directors and Small Stadium Matchday Hospitality awards at a prestigious ceremony run by conference and events experts Stadium Experience.
Sponsored by Heineken, the Stadium and Events Hospitality Awards aim to recognise the efforts and dedication shown by the catering, conference and events teams at every football and rugby stadium across the UK and Ireland.
This year’s ceremony will take place at Brighton and Hove Albion’s Amex Stadium on Thursday 31 May, with a bronze, silver and winner award presented for each of the 13 categories.
Notts' commercial director Amanda Fletcher said: “We are ecstatic to have been nominated by Stadium Experience in all three categories.
“This is amazing recognition for the hard work of all our hospitality and events staff to deliver chairman Alan Hardy’s world-class vision.
“We have seen huge investment in the club’s hospitality, conference and events operation this year with stunning suite refurbishments and vastly improved catering convincing more and more supporters that matchday hospitality is a great option for them.
“To be considered in the same bracket as some of the country’s elite football and rugby clubs is an amazing achievement for us and we can’t wait to see how we fare at the ceremony.
“I would like to thank all our guests who continue to bring a special buzz to our suites every matchday.”
Meadow Lane’s hospitality suites are sold out for the club’s remaining 2017-18 home fixtures but expressions of interest are welcomed for a potential play-off semi-final and seasonal 2018-19 hospitality. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0115 955 7222.
