Sporting events

GL events has an incredible pedigree in the delivery of diverse infrastructure solutions for sporting events, such as our sports marquees, across a wide range of sporting and recreational activities.

Within motorsport, we have many years of experience delivering event solutions for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone and more recently Formula E, where in 2014-2015 GL events was the Official Global Overlay Partner, providing infrastructure for each of the ten race events worldwide.

Hospitality structures for sports events

Within horse racing and equestrian, we have delivered hospitality structures for sports events like Royal Ascot and a mix of hospitality and retail units for the Cheltenham Festival, Chester Race Course, Epsom Race Course, Burghley Horse Trials and Mint Polo in the Park.

Another area in which our temporary sporting event structures excel is golf, where we have delivered both hospitality and tiered solutions for tournaments in the UK and internationally. These have included two Ryder Cups, The Open Championship, The European Open, Dubai World Championship and Open de Espana.

Adaptable marquees for sports events

Our temporary sporting event structures for football, rugby and cricket clubs are also diverse and showcase perfectly the flexibility of GL events as an infrastructure provider. We have provided permanent stadium developments for a number of football and rugby clubs. Some of which have included the installation of hospitality, retail and conference facilities, and a mix of temporary and permanent seating for a number of county cricket clubs.

In 2015, we provided a temporary hospitality solution for Liverpool FC during the club’s redevelopment work. While rugby hospitality solutions have been provided for the Rugby World Cup, RBS 6 Nations, as well as for Twickenham Rugby Club.

Our seating and hospitality structures for sports events are again combined when it comes to tennis, with solutions provided for the Lawn Tennis Association, Aegon Tennis Series and Boodles Tennis Tournament.

Nowhere is the scalability and flexibility of our sporting solutions better demonstrated than in our infrastructure delivery for the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, and the 2015 Commonwealth Games. GL events supplied all of the temporary sporting event structures, media centres and ancillary equipment for the 2012 Olympics, along with over 125,000-tiered spectator seats.

Our solution delivery doesn’t stop there either. We have provided support and hospitality structures for many other sports, both competitive and also mass participation events, such as the Great North Run.
