Making its debut as a finalist in the ‘best for sport’ category at the 2019 Great British Pub Awards – and the category’s only representative from north of the border – why is sport is so important to The Foundry in Aberdeen?

Though its city’s football team often plays second fiddle to rivals from the likes of Glasgow and Edinburgh, the Foundry in Aberdeen represents the best of Scotland in this year’s Great British Pub Awards Best for Sport category.

  • How can showing sport boost your business?​ We spoke to the six finalists in the ‘best for sport’ category at the 2019 Great British Pub Awards to find out how sport gives their business that winning feeling.

A recognised partner of nearby Aberdeen Football Club and a vibrant, centrally located sanctuary for its fans on both home and away match days, the Foundry is a spacious supporter-friendly venue at the heart of the granite city.

Particularly tied to the Aberdeen FC Community Trust – by far the most northern finalist in this category is a bright, recently refurbished, all-day sporting and social hub boasting pool tables, beer towers and screens in all shapes and sizes as well as a broad and regular range of charity initiatives.

The Foundry’s Mark Joseph states that showing sport can have a knock-on effect for the rest of the business. “Football’s always going to be the main one. We’re absolutely packed for Aberdeen games, Liverpool, Man United, Celtic and Rangers.

“They come for the sport and they’ll come at the weekend to eat and later for a disco.”
