Elior wins £10m Premier League deal with West Ham FC

Elior has knocked rival caterer Compass Group out of the Premier League contract at West Ham FC, in a deal worth nearly £10m.

The French-owned caterer takes over from Compass tomorrow (1 June), Caterer and Hotelkeeper has learnt, just two weeks after the London team was promoted back into the Premier League after one season in the Championship.

The two-year contract, worth £4.9m a year in annual turnover, will see Elior provide all food services on both match days and non-match days at the Upton Park ground.

Elior will also be responsible for all hotel services when on non-match days West Ham converts its executive boxes into bedrooms with views over the pitch.

West Ham joins QPR as Elior's second premiership football client. The caterer also counts Brighton & Hove Albion, Glasgow Rangers and Port Vale among its football portfolio, as well as Scottish rugby ground Murrayfield.

Dawn Gallimore, director of sales and stadia at Elior, said: "We feel especially proud to have won this new contract based on the service we offer and recommendations from existing clients.

"Our aim is to deliver pleasure and joy to consumers and our offer at West Ham is set to give fans a great customer experience."
