Sodexo wins £5m contract at new sports complex at University of Nottingham

Sodexo has won a 10-year catering contract worth £5m at the University of Nottingham's new David Ross Sports Village, which opens next month.

The caterer will run the Clubhouse, a sports café, in the £40m sports complex at Nottingham's University Park campus.

The café will serve healthy and nutritious food, with a focus on salads and smoothies. Former England rugby world cup winner and Sodexo's health and wellbeing ambassador, Matt Dawson, has advised on the menus.

Sodexo currently operates five outlets at the university's Sutton Bonington campus and will employ 12 people at the Clubhouse.

Jonathan Keitch, Sodexo Universities account director, said: "In the Clubhouse we've put together a really high quality, stylish eating environment and a fantastic food offer to meet the needs of the students, athletes and general public who will use the sports village."

"We are pleased to have Sodexo on board with an innovative and exciting concept to support sports nutrition at the village."

Work started on the sports village in March 2015 and is being supported by Nottingham Law alumnus and Carphone Warehouse founder David Ross.
