The catering company that also supplies Wembley, Arsenal, Derby and  Coventry announced losses of over £24m on a turnover of £19m when they published their 2021 accounts at companies house this week.

They also list net liabilities of nearly £38m and that they are bailed out by the international Delaware North group to stay solvent.

The prices charged by the catering firm at the London Stadium made headlines last week after it was revealed it is the most expensive stadium to buy drinks and food in the Premier League.
