Compass Group wins contract at Ireland's Lansdowne Road stadium

Compass Group has won a multi-million pound 21-year deal to cater at Ireland's New Stadium, Lansdowne Road.

Under the terms of the contract, Compass will supply all catering at the rebuilt 50,000-seater stadium when it reopens to the public in April 2010 which includes 35 hospitality boxes, three restaurants and 57 food and drink outlets.

On non-match days, the on-site team will handle conference and banqueting business at the site, and the food offer has been developed by Mark Wright, executive chef for the Compass stadia business.

Philip Browne, chairman of Lansdowne Road Stadium Development Company, said: "Compass Group is an ideal choice of catering partner. It is the largest and most successful catering company in this area, so is best equipped to deliver for all our various visitors to the new stadium."

"Our decision to appoint them was influenced by the local knowledge and experience of the Dublin-based Compass team."

Compass already provides services at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium; Twickenham, the home of English Rugby Union and the 02 Arena in London.

Compass Ireland, established in 1987, provides services to Bank or Ireland, Guinness brewer Diageo, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Microsoft.
