FOR many years, hospitality at Dumbarton FC has been a fantastic way to enjoy matchday at what is now the C&G Systems Stadium.
But did you know that some changes have taken place over the last year?
As well as the arrival of new caterers Revolution Catering and Events, Stephanie Park has taken over at the helm of organising the hospitality experience for our fans and sponsors.
The changes have all been received very positively, with the young caterers providing fabulous food for all tastes and diets.
And Stephanie has been working hard to improve the match day experience from the booking stage through to welcoming guests as they come through the door.
Some of these guests are coming for their first visit – but hopefully it goes on to be the first of many.
Stephanie said: “I wanted to improve on the great job done by previous organiser Alan Findlay, so I listened to feedback and what could be improved has been improved.
“This has worked well as everyone who attends can’t wait to return!
“I did a similar job hosting tables when we first moved from Boghead to the current stadium, so it is great being back doing something I love.”
In December, Stephanie took a chance on an Asian-themed lunch which was massively popular with guests, thanks to the excellent culinary skills of the caterers.
She has another themed day up her sleeve which she assures us is going to be huge! This will be announced very soon so watch this space.
Stephanie would like to reach out to local businesses and encourage them get in touch to try out the match day experience.
She added: “There was some time between Alan leaving and me being taking over.
“Opportunities may have been missed, so please if you haven’t been contacted, drop me an email or give me a call. I am sure you won’t be disappointed”
Here is what some guests and staff at the club have had to say:
Matchday hospitality is a fantastic way to enjoy a game, support our local community and enjoy a relaxed atmosphere with clients colleagues friends and family.
Andrew Gordon (C&G Systems)
Matchday hospitality is a fantastic way to enjoy a day out at the football with family or friends. Amazing food, great value and Stephanie is a first class hostess attending to our guests’ needs. For businesses it is the ideal way to entertain clients whilst advertising your business to the wider community. I would encourage everyone to contact Stephanie and experience the match day hospitality at Dumbarton Football Club.
Colin Hosie (Dumbarton FC vice-chairman)
Just a quick email to say thank you to you and all your staff. Both Michelle and I had a wonderful day at the match on Saturday. The hospitality was great and the food was excellent, especially the pies and savouries at half time.
Matchday hospitality at Dumbarton FC is a great day out, Stephanie ensures everyone is well looked after. I’d encourage you to come along and try it.
