Levy renews contracts with Jockey Club Racecourses and the Kia Oval

Levy UK and Ireland has announced it has renewed two catering contracts with Jockey Club Racecourses, the UK's largest racecourse group, and the Kia Oval, home of Surrey CCC.

The Jockey Club Racecourses contract has been extended for a further three years. Jockey Club Catering provides grade one catering at the Jockey Club's 15 racecourses since its launch in 2009.

Meanwhile, Levy's contract at the Kia Oval will see the partnership extended by five years concentrating on sustainability initiatives, such as serving drinks in recyclable, reusable glass and removing polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic bottles, including those used for water.

"As sports and entertainment fans across the country look forward to a return to large-scale events on the back of the pandemic, Levy UK + Ireland is proud to extend its partnership with both of these fantastic venues, and is keen to build on the already innovative customer experiences it provides," said Jon Davies, managing director at Levy UK and Ireland.

"As part of our Levy Cares initiative, we remain committed to reducing waste produced within our venues whilst continuing to provide a wide range of innovative and exciting food and drink experiences for guests, while remaining an employer who cares for our people. We can't wait to welcome visitors back."

Over the weekend, Wembley Stadium was host to Manchester City's Carabao Cup final win over Tottenham which was attended by 8,000 supporters as part of a test event to trial the return of fans to sports stadia. Supporters were tested for Covid-19 before attending the event.
