Sodexo Prestige Venues and Events (PV&E) won ‘Best Stadium Events Venue’ and ‘Best Digital Enquiry Award’ at the Stadium Experience awards.

The awards recognise the efforts of catering, conference and events teams at UK and Ireland football and rugby stadiums. 

Brighton and Hove Albion's Amex Stadium – catering and events partner of Sodexo PV&E – hosted the 2018 ceremony on May 31.

Kathy Taylor, sales manager for Sodexo PV&E at the Amex Stadium, said the awards were recognition for the hard work and excellent level of service the team provides to clients and customers in the stadia market.

She added: “We are particularly delighted to have won the 'Best Stadium Events Venue' category as our entry highlighted examples of a number of challenging events and the testimonials of our very satisfied customers – so it’s a very special win for us."

The event was the 14th annual awards organised by Stadium Experience. A total of 70 football and rugby clubs were nominated for awards, with 25 different stadium venues scooping at least one of 39 gongs across 13 categories.

Some awards were entered by the club themselves and others were nominated. 

The Amex Stadium welcomed 350 guests from various sectors to a four-course menu, ceremony and live entertainment, followed by an onsite after-party. 

The Brighton awards were among seven won in total by Sodexo PV&E teams, with Everton FC winning 'Best Match Day Hospitality – Medium Stadium', taking silver in the 'Chef Team of the Year' category and coming third in 'Overall Match Day Hospitality'.

The Sodexo teams at Newcastle United FC and Hampden Park also won silver and bronze respectively in the 'Best Match Day Hospitality – Large Stadium' category.
