Wilson Vale seals first stadia catering deal with Cambridge United FC

Wilson Vale has been chosen as Cambridge United Football Club’s new catering partner - its first stadia deal - operating all match day and non-match day catering and events at the stadium from this month.

The scope of the contract includes providing player feeding, matchday fan feeding for the 8,000 capacity Abbey Stadium, first class matchday hospitality for the club’s Signature Suite and Executive lounge as well as event catering.

Joining the U’s at a very exciting time with their recent promotion to League One earlier this year, Wilson Vale offer new innovative ways of improving the experience of every fan and visitor with seasonal and locally-inspired food concepts.

David Anderson, Wilson Vale Operations Director, said, “We are thrilled to be working with Cambridge United and are excited to be joining at such a progressive time for the club following their promotion into League One.

'This is our first contract gained in stadia catering which gives us an opportunity to apply our knowledge and the talents of our colleagues in an exciting new sector.

'With our core Wilson Vale ethos firmly fixed on serving fresh, seasonal and local produce, we instantly had a synergy with the values and ambitions of Cambridge United and we very much look forward to adding value to all aspects of the catering at the Abbey Stadium.”

Ian Mather, Cambridge United CEO was equally delighted and said, “Wilson Vale have an outstanding reputation and we are delighted to be working with them. They operate to very high standards and our fans, corporate guests and those attending weekday conferences will enjoy some excellent food.'
