In 2012, the Warriors made Scotstoun Stadium their home, marking a pivotal moment in the club’s history. This coincided with the team's most successful era with their first-ever domestic league title and two Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final appearances.

Increasing capacity at Scotstoun Stadium

With an average attendance of over 7000 visitors per game, it became necessary for the club to increase overall capacity within the stadium during the rugby season. They enlisted the help of the GL events UK seating team to install an additional 2,500 seats split across three new grandstands.

Reaching the finishing Line

Encountering a series of challenges during the project’s initial phase, including changing suppliers and tight timelines, Glasgow Warriors relied on the expertise of GL events UK's seating team to provide a robust seating and stand solution.

Scotstoun Stadium is also used to host athletics events. During the initial design phase, GL events UK's CAD designers ensured that the stands at the outer pitch level did not obstruct the running track within the stadium. This extra level of attention to detail was necessary at this stage to comply with safety regulations and ensure unrestricted access to the stands.

Installed in just two weeks, the speed at which the project was completed is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the GL events UK team.

Testimonial


"Glasgow Warriors are a customer focused club, and when recruiting our new east, west, and community stand suppliers we wanted to work with a company that met the needs of our dedicated fan base. GL Events Seating & Stadia are that company. They were determined to provide us with good solutions that offered more leg room for our customers, and a higher roof for a better viewing experience, both towards the pitch and for our north stand big screen."
