Gather & Gather scores Southampton FC catering

Gather & Gather has reached an agreement in principle with Southampton Football Club to oversee its catering and events.

The 10-year contract is due to begin on 1 July, however the value was not disclosed. Catering at the venue was previously operated in-house.

Gather & Gather, which launched in 2013, became part of CH&CO last year, as well as winning the 2019 Foodservice Cateys for Business & Industry Caterer of the Year and Andrea Fawcett winning Chef Manager of the Year.

Gather & Gather will provide catering and events services across the football club’s sites; from food and drink concepts and service in both the concourses and hospitality suites on matchdays, to conferences and events at St Mary’s on non-matchdays, as well as catering for the club’s players and staff.

Rob Fredrickson, managing director of Gather & Gather UK, said: “There was an immediate connection as we talked through our proposals with David and his team, with our vision, values and approach closely aligned. Together we will make a tangible difference to not only the matchday and non-matchday experience, but, through our work with Saints Foundation, to the lives of the people and communities connected to the club.”

Southampton Football Club’s chief commercial officer, David Thomas, said: “We conducted an in-depth and lengthy selection process as we looked at a new catering and events partnership, and it was Gather & Gather that emerged as the standout choice for us…

“We are delighted to be working with such a fresh and exciting company, and we are looking forward to collaborating with them on enhancing an experience we are already proud of for both our fans and our clients.”
