For the last 10 years, Elior UK has showcased the emblematic stadium as a symbol of national pride, cooking up the best of Scottish produce for fans and hospitality guests. Thanks to the expertise of the Elior teams, conference and events revenue has soared 75%, the average customer dwell time has increased by 21 minutes, retail sales have rocketed by 137% and match day customer satisfaction ratings are 98%.

Our relationship goes well beyond that of the traditional client and supplier - the entire Elior team feels part of the Scottish Rugby family. We’ve worked in partnership to deliver a first class offer based on customer experience. To align with the vision and values of Scottish Rugby, we’ve transformed our brand from the Murrayfield Experience to Scottish Rugby Hospitality, better representing the entire service and atmosphere we provide together with the Scottish Rugby team. We’re thrilled to be growing our businesses together at this fantastic venue.
