The caterer has been signed up on a rolling contract, and will look after all match-day and non match-day catering, which up to now has been managed in-house.
The specialist sports catering division of The Lindley Group is also introducing a sales and marketing programme to promote the use of the stadium’s facilities for private parties and functions.
The Wildcats club plans to move from its current home ground at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium after the 2014 season. It will relocate to a new 12,000 capacity community stadium in 2015.
James Elston, chief executive of Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, said: "The club has made great strides in the past 18 months and we have been able to focus on looking at further opportunities to grow and develop.
"We’ve been impressed with the results Lindley has achieved at other rugby league grounds including Warrington Wolves and The John Smith’s Stadium at Huddersfield. There will be more emphasis on serving locally-sourced seasonal produce."
Jonathan Davies, sales and marketing director at The Lindley Group, says: "Being awarded the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats catering contract at this pivotal stage in the development of the club provides us with a fantastic opportunity to help lay the foundations for the future growth and prosperity of one of rugby league’s most established teams.
"We will be installing new kiosks which will speed up service and sell our award-winning pies, hotdogs and burgers, and we will be creating new bespoke menus for the hospitality suites."
