English Premier League football club Tottenham Hotspur has secured a deal for Michelin-starred chef Chris Galvin to cook for visitors at its new home stadium.
According to The Caterer, Galvin will now join a host of other famous chefs that have already agreed to bring their cuisine to hospitality suites at the venue, which, currently under construction, is scheduled to open next summer in time for the 2018-19 football season.
Galvin, who runs a number of Michelin-starred restaurants in London, will both design and prepare the entire menu for the On Four hospitality suites on level four of the new 61,559-capacity stadium. The chef will also personally oversee service at a number of Tottenham home games next season.
“I’m extremely excited to be working with Tottenham Hotspur and bringing my food and service to guests On Four,” Galvin said. “This is my first partnership with a sporting venue and I can’t wait for the challenge.
“I am a lifelong fan and my family grew up close to Tottenham and know the area well so from a personal point of view it’s great to be part of a project that is transforming the local area as well as redefining the visitor experience in football.”
Michel Roux Jr and Emily Roux are among a host of other famous chefs that will feature at the new stadium during its first season of operation.
Andy O’Sullivan, director of hospitality at Tottenham, added: “We are delighted to bring Chris Galvin on board as we further add to our outstanding line-up of chefs that will form part of the premium offering at our new stadium.
“By welcoming first the Roux family and now Chris, we are developing an unrivalled premium experience for guests On Four.”
Tottenham’s new stadium project is one of 50+ new stadium projects in attendance at the annual TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit taking place in Barcelona next month (28-29 November).
