Speak to us so we can help you design your stand to match your vision.

We can custom design bespoke stands to fit the space that you have. Site visits are helpful for us to look at a ground and discuss the best options with you. When quoting we always include the stand dimensions so you can assess whether the footprint is suitable, or whether we need to tailor certain elements to make it fit. There is always a solution!

Yes, all our stands are built in a modular design and are easily extended or moved. Start small and let your stand grow with your club.

This is not a problem for us, because as long as we can walk to where you want your stand to go, we can erect where you need us to. Our stands are delivered in piece-by-piece sections and at many smaller grounds we carry the stand to its position and have no need for lorries or cranes churning up your pitch.

All we need the club to do before we come to erect is have a concrete base ready for us to fix to. We provide the specification for the base in advance.

We don't require power as our installation team can run generators for use during the build.

Yes there are options available for refurbishing. We can supply new tip-up seats for your stand to give it a revamp, we can re-sheet existing stands, alter and re-new terracing, and also change standing terracing into seated accommodation. Contact us to find out what can be done with your facilities.

Payment queries

Our standard spectator stand payment terms are 20% of contract value as deposit with order, followed by 35% on commencement on site, 35% on erection of steel frame and terracing, and 10% on completion. We understand that sometimes grants take a while to apply for and we are always happy to discuss the best way forward with each individual club.

Our Standards

The Green Guide to Safety at Sports Grounds, sometimes known as the ‘Green Guide’ or ‘Green
Code’ is written by the SGSA (Sports Grounds Safety Authority) and its aim is to ensure safe conditions at all Sports Grounds in England and Wales.

The latest edition was published in 2018 by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. All of our stands are built in compliance with the Green Guide.

The FA and the National League System provide standardised National Ground Gradings, or steps. Grades run from Grade A (top flight clubs) to Grade H. The NLS incorporates 7 steps. As your club progresses to the next step, there will be new minimum ground grading requirements that you must meet, such as minimum spectator capacities and pitch perimeter barriers. Just contact us with your new requirements and we will be happy to provide you with the best solutions in order to meet your ground upgrade.
