If you’re going to host the biggest ever sporting event your city’s ever seen, you have to put on a good spread.

As a result, when Cardiff hosted the 2017 UEFA Champions League Final at the start of June, we were delighted to be setting up our pots and pans at the Broadcasters’ Bistro!

This area – designed specifically for camera crews, network staff and the like – is based in the Cardiff Blues clubhouse, and we’d been asked to cater for the whirlwind of guests that’d be there during the event.

In the end, we fed…

Over 1,500 people a day, every day, for 2 weeks – that’s a lot of plates!

Camera crews, network staff, UEFA staff and journalists all chilled out and enjoyed the food & the atmosphere at one of the biggest football events in the world.

So, tourists, guests and locals saw crowds and the festival, but what does it really look like behind the scenes? What goes on away from the scarf stalls and the ticket touts?

Take a look through at this unique perspective with our behind-the-scenes photos. None of the crowds, but all of the catering magic…
