Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur has partnered with Levy Restaurants UK in a 10-year contract at its new £750m (€884m/$932m) stadium.

The London ground is due to open in 2018 and will be a 61,000-capacity venue.

Levy will provide year-round catering facilities for match day and non-match day events.

According to Levy, the partnership will create 50 full-time senior positions and 1,400 match day jobs within the catering and hospitality areas.

Previously, Levy has held several clients in the sports sector, including Twickenham, the home stadium of the England national rugby union team, the Wimbledon Championships and Jockey Club Racecourses.

Andy O’Sullivan, Tottenham’s director of hospitality, said the club has undergone an extensive tender process in which Levy proved to be the “outstanding candidate.”

“They share our vision of enhancing the fan offering throughout our new stadium and their knowledge and expertise will prove invaluable in helping us deliver a world-class experience for all our visitors,” he said.

The managing director of Levy, Colin Bailey, said that he is delighted to have been selected as the catering partner for “one of the biggest clubs in Europe.”

The catering company said its focus would be placed on capitalising on the stadium’s use of technology, to allow fans to use pay and pre-ordering applications.

“The development plans and the significant investment in engaging fans from the outset really does set this build apart, and sets a new standard for the sports and events community,” Bailey said.
