Premier League Hospitality

The 2021/22 Premier League Season

As I’m sure you’re aware the government has announced that the country is aiming to be back to normal by the end of June. We can finally look forward in anticipation to the next Premier League season with full stadiums, brilliant atmospheres and maybe a hint of a home advantage! Corporate hospitality packages at Premier League matches are always special, with ex-footballers associated with the club often in attendance. Enjoy pre and post match food and drink with a fantastic view of the game, what more can you ask for!

It’s likely that hospitality for Premier League matches will be difficult to attain so we aim to do the hard part for you. We have great relationships with the major clubs in the UK and are delighted to offer the Engage experience at the biggest games of the season.

The 2021/2022 season is going to be extremely exciting with Manchester City likely to be going in as holders and favourites. Liverpool will prove whether or not their injuries in 2020/21 were the key reason why they suffered a huge decline and Chelsea, Manchester United, Leicester and others will be trying to claw back Pep’s incredibly ruthless squad.

We advise you to register your interest on our Premier League product page to hear about the latest opportunities going into the new season.

Premier League Hospitality opportunities in London

London has a wealth of corporate hospitality opportunities across all sports and football is no different, with some incredible stadiums and teams to go and watch.

Arsenal FC Hospitality – The Emirates Stadium holds just over 60,000 fans and replaced Highbury in the same area in 2006. The views for corporate hospitality packages are fantastic and with so many recent historical greats still involved at the club, you are guaranteed to have a brilliant experience in North London.

Can Arsenal improve in their second full season under Mikel Arteta with young talent such as Bakayo Saka and Emile Smith-Rowe coming through the ranks?

Chelsea FC Hospitality – Stamford Bridge has been the home of Chelsea FC since they were formed in 1905 and has had crowds of around 100,000 in the 1920s. The West London venue is a primary location for high end corporate hospitality and watching Chelsea recently has been extremely entertaining, due to the ownership of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich.

Chelsea have made a good start under new German manager Thomas Tuchel, who will be looking to gel his attacking stars to mount a title challenge in the 2021/22 Premier League season.

Tottenham FC Hospitality – Tottenham Hotspur have always been known for entertaining football and their incredible new stadium in north London reflects the ambition the club has. Whilst the 62,000 stadium was being built, Tottenham spent a couple of seasons playing at Wembley Stadium but now their new venue is ready. The stadium is modern and luxurious in many aspects, including their corporate hospitality options. If you haven’t been before then the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is certainly one to tick off and see.

Can Jose Mourinho drive the club to success or has the Chelsea legend’s time finally ran out? Harry Kane, Hyeung Min Son and the other Tottenham stars will be desperate to add to their scarce trophy cabinet..

West Ham United FC Hospitality – West Ham have recently moved into the iconic Olympic Stadium, home to the 2012 London Olympic Games. The modern stadium has impeccable views of the pitch and watching an improving West Ham side is generating increased interest.

David Moyes has propelled this team to new heights in the Premier League in 2020/21, can he repeat those heroics next season?

Premier League Opportunities around the UK

Of course there are fantastic corporate hospitality venues around the country and some of football’s iconic stadiums are a long way north of London.

Manchester United Hospitality – Manchester United have the richest history in the Premier League era and it’s matched by their stadium, that holds over 70,000 and the most in the Premier League. Old Trafford is a truly unique corporate hospitality experience for the atmosphere generated by the fans and the action seen on the pitch. Although they haven’t hit their impeccable heights in recent years, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes are driving the club back to the glory days.

Will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer make the next step and challenge for the Premier League, their first since Sir Alex Ferguson’s last season in 2012?

Manchester City Hospitality – Their noisy neighbours Manchester City have been the dominant Premier League club in the last 10 years and watching a Pep Guardiola team right now is a memorable experience. With significant investment, the club have bolstered their playing squad, facilities and stadium with the Etihad Stadium holding over 55,000 spectactors. As the team continue to create history and unforgettable memories, now is the time to watch the beautiful game played beautifully.

Who can stop Manchester City to another Premier League title?

Liverpool FC Hospitality – Anfield is a global, iconic venue that has held incredible Liverpool teams in the past and now in recent memory. The stadium and fans generate an unrivalled atmosphere that makes Liverpool FC corporate hospitality packages extremely appealing to all football fans. They also hold a huge place in European history. Recent nights against Barcelona, Manchester City and Chelsea in the Champions League at Anfield will all live long in the memories of fans.

Will Liverpool bounce back from an incredibly disappointing title defence season?

What can you expect from hospitality at Wembley Stadium with Engage?

Wembley Stadium, both old and new has seen some momentous moments in sporting history that will never, ever be forgotten. The 4-2 “They think it’s all over” World Cup final win in 1966 will forever be in the hearts of English people and it’s hard to top an event that united a nation in such a manner. But there are so many incredible occasions at Wembley that should be remembered, talked about and celebrated for generations.

At Engage we have a corporate hospitality facility at Wembley stadium for all major events, called our ICON facility. Branded in the premium ICON black and gold colours, our most prestigious and most sought after hospitality option gives you the perfect opportunity to see moments in history that you can tell the kids and grandkids about (hopefully not over zoom).

Lets remind ourselves of some of the epic events at Wembley Stadium in the past and what we can look forward to in the future.

1953 FA Cup Final – The Stanley Matthews Final

Known as the Stanley Matthews Final, the FA Cup Final in 1953 was a dramatic comeback that saw Blackpool beat Bolton 4-3, after being 3-1 down with just 35 minutes. Although Stan Mortensen got a hattrick for Blackpool that day, it was 38 year old Matthews who’s constant pace and trickery down the line helped him finally get his hands on the FA Cup trophy.

His 3 assists, including crosses for the 89th minute equaliser and the 92nd minute winner were watched by an unbelievable 100,000 at Wembley Stadium. The game was also known as the first high profile sporting event to be watched on television and ever since that day, the FA Cup final has had it’s along standalone spot on the TV schedule and rightly so! Fortunately you can watch the FA Cup exclusive in out ICON facility.

2011 Champions League Final – Barcelona 3 -1 Manchester United

Fast forward over 50 years and you’ll find a match that signified the greatness of a Barcelona team that will be regarded as one of the best of all time. Fans at the new Wembley Stadium got to watch such a breath-taking,  dominant performance by a team full of modern legends. The likes of Pique, Xavi, Iniesta, Dani Alves and David Villa all featured in this outstanding team, orchestrated by Pep Guardiola who formed a tactical plan that was beautiful, yet unstoppable.

That day, United could barely get a kick of the ball despite Rooney’s first half equaliser. Yet the standout performance and moment was Lionel Messi‘s low strike from outside the box. The Argentine was mesmerizing during the game and further established his career that day as one of the best to ever grace the Wembley pitch. In our ICON facility, you will find plenty of famous football faces to interact with before and after the big game.

Live Aid

Wembley stadium arguably hosted the biggest and one of the most important concerts of all time, Live Aid. The concept came from Bob Geldof who united Philadelphia and other venues to pull off an aligned concert that at it’s peak had an audience of around 40% of the world’s population.

Fantastic performances from U2, David Bowie, Status Quo and Bob himself with the Boomtown rats will be remembered fondly but the ‘Greatest rock performance in history’ truly stole the show. Queen’s 21minute set at Wembley was performed of course by the supremely charismatic Freddie Mercury who had the crowd with him for every note, every beat and every lyrics as he belted out the band’s most popular hits.

Wembley is still the stadium that all major acts want to sell-out and perform to 70,000+ fans. Michael Jackson played the stadium an incredible 16 times during his career and more recently Beyonce, the Spice Girls, Muse, Take That and many many more have all performed memorable sets. Don’t miss out on any major music events in the future with Engage ICON.

Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitscho

Firstly a deserved reference to some other major boxing events at Wembley Stadium, including Henry Cooper v Muhammed Ali where Ali claimed victory in the 5th round, an impressive triumph early on in his professional career. The rematch of Carl Froch v George Groves in 2014 was an outstanding bout that saw Froch back up his controversial points win 6 months ago with a clinical 8th round knockout in another closely fought battle.

But Joshua v Klitscho in 2017 had absolutely everything. 90,000 fans, a post-war attendance record were able to witness the undefeated Joshua try and take the crown of the heavyweight king Klitscho. Both men felt the canvas and had spells in the fight of desperation to stay upright, but in the end, the youthful Joshua had the energy to pummel Klitscho with an 11th round upper cut that will be remembered forever. Let’s hope Joshua and Tyson Fury fight at Wembley! You can watch it live with us or any other incredible boxing match ups.

Wembley ICON Club Hospitality

NFL International Series

In 2007, Wembley stadium had the honour of hosting the first ever regular season NFL game outside of North America. Tickets sold out instantly as fans flocked to see the Miami Dolphins play the New York Giants, with the Giants in the end winning by 3 points.

The series has had significant growth since it’s initial success as now 30 matches have been played across three stadiums, but Wembley has hosted 25 of those. Still one of the most in-demand events on the calendar, the opportunity to see competitive NFL games is a real treat for the UK fans and Wembley will always hold a close association with the huge American franchise sport. Watch the unique NFL spectacle in true American style with Engage’s ICON facility.

F1 Silverstone Hospitality

FORMULA1 BRITISH GRAND PRIX 2021

F1 Silverstone Hospitality

Silverstone has an historic and iconic association with the British Grand Prix and attending an event at this famous track is a once in a lifetime opportunity. As Lewis Hamilton looks to finally confirm his GOAT racing status, we take a look at the beautiful circuit and how you can watch the British Grand Prix in style in 2021.

The History of Silverstone

The history of the Silverstone race circuit is a fascinating story driven by post war desires to bring racing back to the forefront of sporting entertainment for Britain and the rest of the world. The abandoned airfield of Silverstone were a perfect location, being in the centre of the country and having enough space to hold hundreds of thousands to view and enjoy Silverstone hospitality.

In 1948, farmer James Wilson Brown was given just two months by the RAC to turn this now famous race track into something tenable for exciting racing. Luigi Villoresi, the Italian won in his Maserati and on that day Silverstone took it’s place in motorsport history.

The development of Silverstone Hospitality – 50s, 60s, 70s & 80s

As early as 1951, the fans view and experience was prioritised as the RAC handed the lease over to the British Racing Drivers Club to develop the venue and compete with the best in the world. Stands were built and customers were able to secure priority viewing, the first real example of Silverstone hospitality.

Silverstone hosted the first F1 World Championship in the 50s and has since been a regular on the formula one calendar. Major circuits have developed significantly since the initial phases of the F1 Championships, largely due to safety reasons. Silverstone is no different. The track layout continues to reform, often to reduce the speed as the F1 cars became quicker and make it more technically challenging for the incredible drivers racing.

But hospitality packages, hotel builds and special facilities have been constructed in the complex to give fans plenty of options to watch the entertainment. The Monaco Grand Prix is a prime example of this, where even though the layout is similar to the first ever race in 1929, the desire for larger hotels resulted in the extended tunnel over Portier in 1975.

Silverstone Hospitality – Where are we now?

The surge in demand for Silverstone hospitality over the past 20 years has meant that options for avid F1 fans, or sports fans in general are plentiful. The race normally takes place in the first couple of weeks in July where the weather is often glorious and Sunday race day is paired up with the men’s Wimbledon final, a perfect day of sport! If the rain does find a way to the track, the race can become more unpredictable so there’s no loser whatever the weather.

Hospitality at Silverstone is available across the three days with Friday hosting two sessions of practice, Saturday for practice and qualifying and Sunday the big race day. Typically morning practices will start at around 10am, with qualifying often at 1pm and the race starting at 2.10pm.

After signing his new one year deal, Lewis Hamilton will be going for his record breaking 8th World Championship in 2021, so this is the year to break your Silverstone duck if you haven’t been alreayd.
