TWELVE Restaurant & Lounge Bar is the newest signing at Fleetwood Town FC as the building of the new £4m grandstand gathers momentum.

The award-winning Fylde coast restaurant has been chosen by Fleetwood Town FC to provide the club’s match day hospitality, banqueting and conferencing catering.

The new facilities at the Highbury Stadium includes seven executive boxes with balcony seating and unrivalled views of the ground alongside an 180-seater function room named the Parkside Hospitality Suite.

The Parkside Hospitality Suite is located on the top floor of the 2,000 seater stand which makes its full debut on April 16th and April 25th for the last two Blue Square Bet Premiership games of the current 2010/11 season.

Twelve Chef Proprietor Paul Moss said: “Caroline and I are delighted to be involved with Fleetwood Town FC. We live in Fleetwood and sport is very close to our hearts.

“We’re really looking forward to producing good food at the club and seeing our partnership with Fleetwood Town thrive.”

The Parkside Hospitality Suite will be used for match day hospitality but will also be available for a wide variety of other events such as parties, weddings and family celebrations, business events, conferences and exhibitions.

Front of House Proprietor at Twelve, Caroline Upton, said they would also be providing the catering for private functions at the popular Jim’s Sports Bar.

She explained: “A wide variety of menus will be available for events of all sizes ranging from three course menus to buffets and corporate lunches.

“Twelve is widely known across the Fylde coast for its excellent reputation using local and seasonally sourced produce; we will bring this quality and commitment to everything we do at Fleetwood Town.”

Club Chief Executive, Steve Curwood, welcomed the new partnership.

“The Parkside Hospitality Suite will be a must-see venue on the Fylde Coast, offering unrivalled food with attentive service in a unique setting amidst quality decor and surroundings. Twelve Restaurant’s quality and reputation is well-recognised and it’s great to see two of the area’s well-known names coming together,” he said.
