Premiership Rugby Club Northampton Saints has extended its contract with Levy UK, which will continue to be the official food and hospitality partners at the Franklin’s Gardens stadium until 2025.
According to the club, the contract extension will allow Levy UK to “enhance the supporter experience” at the 15,000-capacity stadium through the development of new culinary and lifestyle offerings, including new bespoke retail brands offering more plant-based menus across concession outlets.
It added that fans will also “benefit” from an investment into the stadiums technology infrastructure which will see the roll-out of new and future proofed systems to improve speed of service and create a cashless environment.
Mark Darbon, chief executive, Northampton Saints, said: “Levy UK has an unparalleled level of expertise and experience in delivering outstanding catering and hospitality at some of the country’s biggest and best venues, and we’re confident that they will continue to have a positive impact at Franklin’s Gardens.”
Jonathan Davies, managing director at Levy UK, added: “Northampton Saints has become one of the most recognisable teams in English Rugby Union and the relationship we have built over the past three years has grown significantly.
“It is a real pleasure to work alongside a knowledgeable and innovative team, it has allowed us to show our catering innovation. To see the fan’s react so positively to it as well is a bonus, and to be able to develop this offer further over future years is an exciting prospect.”
