Lindley scores two football stadia contracts

Contract caterer Lindley Group has been awarded two new football stadia contracts with a combined value of around £3m.
Crystal Palace football club has appointed Lindley to manage the public match-day catering at its 26,000 capacity Selhurst Park ground in south-east London.

Darlington FC has also chosen Lindley to provide the match-day public concourse catering at the 25,000 capacity Darlington Arena, in the north-east town.

Both clubs previously managed their match-day public concourse catering in-house.

The latest additions brings the total number of football stadia contracts managed by Lindley to more than 40.

Paul Biffen, Lindley Group's sales and marketing director, said: "As clubs are coming under increasing pressure to maximise revenue from their match-day catering, those who manage their catering in-house are increasingly looking to benefit from the experience and expertise that a specialist stadia caterer such as Lindley can offer.

Biffen added that that every sports club that the Lindley has worked with has increased their catering turnover by at least 10% and in some instances as much as 50%.
