They should run their own catering on matchdays , there must be money to be made there.

Having a catering company to tender is the easiest way. The club would need to employ a catering manager as a lot of organising is involved plus the club has the hassle of employing staff for match days which involves a whole load more problems for the club. It's also hard to get a chef just for a Saturday and the odd week days for hospitality All staff would need basic food handlers certificates at a cost to the club. Far easier putting the catering contract out to tender where a catering company have everything needed to run the show plus have back up staff when needed. Have ran catering units for years so have a good insight to requirements needed. Edited by Isle Of Bute Saint

Surely don't need a chef to heat up a pie

£9 for an 80 serving drum of Bovril from Makro...return per drum (@ £2 per cup) £160

£1 for 4 scotch pies from Iceland...return (per 4 pies) £8.80

£1 for 100 tea-bags from Poundland...I don't drink tea so don't know much it costs at SMP but again the potential profits must be in the 100s of %.

There must be numerous other examples. Surely if the fans are going to be obscenely fleeced at the catering outlsts, that obscene profit should be going directly to the club and not a third party..

My wife was charged £1.80 for a cup of hot water at the game v Morton.

There is also the cost of catering equipment (do not know who owns the stuff in the stadium), electricity, staff wages, transport, insurance, staff training etc - even if a game is called off and you are left with all the food. Profit margins are a hell of a lot less than the above suggestion.

Anyone know more about this Qatari bid for the club, where has it come from ?

Please don't say Qatar !

The bid from Qatari group is the one we knew about, there were no named persons (and still are none) so couldn't give the info out, i did think it would not surface until we got over the 1000 mark, and have been proved right, at this stage it's words in a newspaper and our deposit is on it's way to the consortium. No idea why someone would want to print this in the press without letting SMiSA know about it.

Suffice to say our bid is in and at a set price and nothing will change on that, i can assure you all that as soon as we know what's occurring here i will let you know. Meanwhile it's just a newspaper story, nobody has contacted SMiSA regarding this.

What was the final 10000Hours figure?

IIRC 10000hours gave figures as cash pledged per month and the final figure was £11540pcm based on just over 1000 (no precise number given) sign-ups.

The guy who could confirm this has already posted today..............

Have a wee think why the cost of food and drinks are so expensive. I have not seen the catering contract , however if I was making a contract up it would be a substantial payment up front or ( and ) a percentage of each item sold. Ether way it is best to have a catering company run the show as it is only one day a week in most cases.

Welcome to Football SMISA, same thing happened at least twice with 10000hours...important thing is to have a point man to answer any media and not to have to go round the committee doors preparing a rebuttal where one is needed...so far so good Edited by rea
