A new hospitality company has been set up at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, by the Welsh Rugby Union and the venue’s existing caterer.
Known as Millennium Stadium Experience Limited (MSEL), the new company is owned 83.5% by the former and 16.5% by the latter, and is based at the revamped hospitality headquarters inside the Millennium Stadium.
Steve Phillips, chairman of MSEL, said: “I am delighted that we were able to conclude the MSEL deal with a view to further enhancing both the hospitality and the catering offering at the Millennium Stadium. This is an exciting venture for all involved as we work together to deliver an exceptional service for our guests while establishing a sound business strategy for the future.”
For Wales’ Six Nations clash with Ireland on Saturday, upward of 1,000 additional catering and hospitality staff, including 35 professional chefs, will join the MSEL team to serve the 74,500 crowd across 54 public food and beverage units outlets and 123 VIP suites.
