The club’s Parkside Hospitality Suite - seven executive boxes and a 180-seater function room in the new Highbury grand stand – has officially opened.
Guests enjoyed delicious three-course match day menus on the top floor of Fleetwood Town’s new £4m 2,000-seater stadium including Cod Army Fish Pie and Cod Army Beer Battered Fish and Chips!
Fleetwood Town FC Chairman, Andy Pilley, described the opening of the new facilities for the matches against Altrincham on April 16th and against Barrow on April 25th as the realisation of a dream.

He said: “The opening of the new grand stand facilities is another major milestone in the rapid rise of Fleetwood Town Football Club.
“It represents a major step forward in our quest to deliver a Football League standard club.
“Everyone has thoroughly enjoyed the new facilities and will no doubt spread the word. The Parkside Stand has firmly staked its place on the Fleetwood skyline as the town celebrates its 175th birthday.”
Paul and Caroline of Twelve and their team of staff have worked tirelessly to ensure the first match day hospitality events have been a success.
Caroline said: “Our first two match day hospitality events at Fleetwood Town FC have been amazing! All the guests have been very impressed with the facilities in the new hospitality suite and the quality of food and service they’ve received – not surprisingly the Cod Army fish and chips have gone down very well!
“The Altrincham and Barrow matches were excellent opening days and we look forward to many more to come.”
The Parkside Hospitality Suite is also available for private hire for a wide variety of events such as parties, weddings, family celebrations, business events, conferences and exhibitions.
Fleetwood Town FC’s Corporate and Hospitality Manager, Louise Morley, said: “We have all worked together to make the opening of the new facilities very special.
“We’ve had brilliant feedback from guests and look forward to welcoming many more to watch great football in great surroundings with excellent hospitality.”
The club now has a place in the Blue Square Bet Premier play-offs which start against AFC Wimbledon on May 6th followed by the away leg, on May 11th.
