Lime Venue Portfolio is proud to announce Leeds United Football Club has joined its collection of unique, unusual and sporting venues.

Elland Road Stadium, the home of Leeds United Football Club, is famous for its football on the pitch and equally renowned for its catering and hospitality services off the pitch. The Stadium boasts fourteen suites and sixty private boxes available for conferences and events hire. The multi-purpose spaces accommodate a wide range of activities from large scale conferences and exhibitions to live music, fashion and sporting events. The venue’s East Stand has recently completed an eight million pound refurbishment resulting in the installation of state of the art audio visual equipment to all of the suites.

Elland Road’s Centenary Pavilion provides one of the biggest conferences and events spaces in the North of England with over 2000 square metres of space and with a capacity of 2,800 people standing or 1,250 for a seated dinner. The space has proved especially popular with event organisers looking for a flexible space for product launches and gala dinners.

Lime Venue Portfolio’s collection of venues include a diverse range of national treasure houses and leisure destinations, iconic sporting stadiums as well as some of the UK’s major racecourses. Current venues include the Kia Oval, Edgbaston, Royal Berkshire Conference Centre, Edinburgh Zoo, Dartmouth House, Stationers’ Hall, Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), Beaulieu, Kempton Park, Epsom Downs and Cheltenham Racecourse.

Jo Austin, head of sales, Lime Venue Portfolio, comments, “We are delighted to welcome Leeds United Football Club to our ever expanding collection of inspiring venues. The highly versatile and impressive venue is guaranteed to strengthen our present portfolio.”

Alan Hegarty, catering and operations manager, Leeds United Football Club, comments, “We are really proud of our strong reputation for delivering excellent food and service for all our events and I believe that this can only be enhanced by joining the UK ‘s largest collection of unique and unusual sporting venues. It  is an exciting step for us and we are confident going forward that we will support the existing collection of unique venues and boost awareness surrounding our venue through the esteemed Lime Venue Portfolio brand.”
