Sodexo marks record festive season at Aberdeen FC

Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events had a record winter season in 2015 at Aberdeen Football Club, despite the economic difficulties being faced by the city.

The venue at Pittodrie stadium hosted more than three times as many private Christmas events compared with 2014. Its ‘bring a party to a party' nights also saw a boost in guest numbers compared with the previous year.

Debra Lorimer, sales manager at Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, said: "We have had our best winter season in five years and have managed to grow our business, despite the wider economic challenges being experienced in the city.

"Harking back to the football club's heritage and its original kit colours, we rebranded our festive events in 2015 as black & gold party nights, creating a glamorous theme which our guests really bought into, with many even choosing to dress in black and gold."
