Marco helps Space Catering refresh ‘Scarlets’ supporters in their new home

After 130 years, world-famous rugby region, the Scarlets left their famous Stradey Park ground and moved to a new home, Parc y Scarlets in Llanelli. This new, high tech 15,000 seat stadium has cost over £23m to build and was 14 months in construction. The budget for catering equipment alone amounted to half a million pounds and Space Catering, one of the UK’s leading specialists in catering solutions, won the contract to design, supply and install the entire catering infrastructure. In turn, Space Catering appointed Marco Beverage Systems to provide the beverage equipment.

Space Catering designed all the concourse kiosk facilities needed to refresh Scarlets supporters and visitors alike. Additionally, there are three state-of-the-art kitchens serving busy hospitality and function suites, which between them have to cope with up to 800 covers at any one time.

Space Catering knew that, with a small window of opportunity to serve beverages from the refreshment kiosks before the match and during the half time interval, they needed the speed and convenience of in-cup drinks. And nothing serves up hot water to make them faster than Marco’s Oceanic water boiler. In all, Marco installed six Oceanics in refreshment kiosks around the ground. 

For the hospitality and function suite kitchens, Space Catering specified two Marco Maxibrew filter bulk brewers to meet the busy function schedule that Parc y Scarlets has planned, quite apart from regular matchdays.
