Shopping Cart


AUGUST 3, 2023: LONDON. Pitchside Hospitality, formerly known as D&G Group founded by David Nash and Glen Nash, has acquired Hasta World’s hospitality business, in a seven-figure deal.

Hasta World, which has been in operation since 2020, and counts Cheltenham, Ascot, Henley and The Oval within its portfolio, will move under the Pitchside brand from August. Hasta World CEO David Lawlor will move across to become Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) at Pitchside and oversee the hospitality sales operation, which will include the existing sales team at Hasta.

The acquisition marks another step forward for Pitchside Hospitality, which recently announced a major five-year deal with the PDC for the Paddy Power Darts World Championship, as it continues to expand its VIP hospitality and corporate events offer within the UK and Europe.

Neil Bailey, CEO of Pitchside Hospitality commented: “This puts down another major marker, which enables Pitchside to offer even more top tier events and experiences to its customers under one roof. We’ve admired the Hasta World business and the values it operates by are aligned to that of Pitchside, so bringing David Lawlor and his team into our operation, as well as their bespoke booking and stock management technology systems can only be a positive thing.”

Dylan Salamon, Hasta World Founder: “I’m incredibly proud of the brilliant work the founders and the team at Hasta World have delivered over the years. Hasta Sports and Entertainment was created with a goal to be an events and hospitality business which did things differently and it is exactly that which has created the interest from Pitchside. In joining forces we have aligned two companies with a shared vision – of becoming the best hospitality business in the world. I’m excited to see what comes next.”

David Lawlor, CRO Pitchside commented: “This is an opportunity that I couldn’t say no to. We have built a team and operation at Hasta, which we will integrate and expand within the Pitchside Hospitality business. By combining two company’s decades of  expertise and experience we will be able to offer not only the best packages, events and experiences for customers, but also the very best in client services”
