Wasps land early-season silverware

Date: 28 Jun 2019


Wasps have picked up some early-season silverware, after winning the Visiting Rugby Directors Award at the Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards 2019.

The event, which took place in front of 450 sport industry professionals from across 50 rugby and football clubs at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium, saw Wasps scoop the Visiting Rugby Directors Award, which asked directors from the 11 other Gallagher Premiership rugby clubs to vote for their best away day experience of the 2018/19 season. 

Wasps were given the majority of the votes from directors, who were asked to consider the welcome, service and catering when making their decision.

Wasps Chief Executive Nick Eastwood said: “This award is extra special as it has been voted for by our peers, so it’s a real honour for the Club and our staff to be given this recognition as a lot of hard work goes on behind the scenes to ensure our visitors have a first-class experience on match days.

“We are always striving to improve the service at Ricoh Arena – from catering to 5G technology – to keep the venue at the top of its game for visitor experience in the years ahead, which will hopefully lead to future award successes.” 

The recognition adds to Ricoh Arena’s award wins last year at the National Venue Awards and Exhibition News Awards.
