Conference & Events Director Jane Shepstone said: “We’re thrilled to receive nominations in the five award categories in these prestigious awards. The nominees are drawn from the events teams at football and rugby stadiums across the country, so to make the shortlist in itself is a real honour.

“My team work incredibly hard across the year to delight our guests and I really hope that this has earned them the awards for a second time in three years.”
