Stoke City FC opens several newly refurbished lounges and suites at the bet365 Stadium.
Stoke City Football Club is currently undergoing a £20 million five-year development programme at the bet365 Stadium and Clayton Wood training ground. Following the first phase of the programme, the Stanley Matthews Lounge and the Players’ Lounge have been newly refurbished, and we have created a brand-new, exclusive space – the Boardroom.
Able to accommodate up to 150 delegates, the new Stanley Matthews Lounge not only features a display of memorabilia and imagery documenting the career of the city’s most celebrated player, but also includes cutting edge AV technology including an in-room drop-down screen with projector complemented by a sophisticated sound system. The room itself boasts a larger private bar, with space for serving stations both ends of the room. This contemporary space includes natural daylight, ambient lighting, and air conditioning.
The Players’ Lounge has undergone a complete regeneration, now a first-class facility for use on matchdays by the first-team squad and their families and available for corporate or private hire on non-matchdays. With a sophisticated lounge feel, stylish bar, and variety of ambient lighting options, this is the place to be for any gathering: meeting, presentation, or drinks reception.
The Boardroom is a brand-new space borne from merging the Chairman’s Suite and Boardroom which were previously two smaller, separate spaces. This single suite can accommodate 60 delegates and will bear all the hallmarks of the most prestigious venue in the stadium.
On the development programme, Richard Smith, Vice Chairman of Stoke City FC, commented: “The refurbishment programme represents a significant investment by the owners and underlines their continuing commitment to the Club.”
