Seating and Stadia

The addition of event seating to a temporary structure can turn an empty space into a venue. And the addition of high quality seating can greatly enhance your customers’ event experience through improved comfort and line of sight. GL events UK offers rental seating, and also stadium construction for sale, through its in-house seating and stadia division, based at its Castle Donington offices.

Stadia seating suppliers

The only stadium seating supplier in the UK market which designs, manufactures and installs its own tiered seating for sale and hire, GL events utilises its own proprietary seating system. This was developed in advance of the London 2012 Olympic Games, which GL events UK supplied as an official contributor, supplying almost 140,000 tiered seats at 14 Olympic venues in the Olympic park and at iconic venues such as Greenwich Park and Earls Court.

Tiered event seating

Our tiered grandstand and arena seating is ideal for sporting tournaments and events, outdoor concerts and theatre, TV studios and conference venues, as well as graduation ceremonies and other events requiring either tiered or flat event seating. In addition to providing high quality seating hire, GL events can also offer a bespoke solution, including camera platforms and commentary boxes, reception and hospitality areas, toilets and cloakrooms and AV and audio equipment to name but a few.

Bespoke seating hire from GL events

Our ability to manufacture our own seating means we can also offer a solution for customers seeking permanent stadium construction, from a single grandstand to an entire stadium. Our experienced in-house design, structural engineering and project management teams have the ability to manage and coordinate entire projects from conception to completion. Recent projects include work for Watford FC, Barnet FC and Borehamwood FC, the Matmut Stadium in Lyon, as well as Gloucester and Worcester RFC.
