Our Seating team transformed the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre in London by extending the seating capacity by 6,000 seats for the 2018 Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup in July 2018.  Thanks to our seating, furniture, and structures support, the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre was able to accommodate more than 100,000 people attending the nearly sold-out event.  

We designed and installed a custom fit configuration that created a temporary stadium giving every member of the audience a fantastic view of the action. It was important that we increased the capacity of the venue using temporary grandstands and infrastructure with a cost-effective solution. This is an ideal model for venues that host regular events with smaller audiences that need to drastically increase their capacity for specific events – a challenge we take in our stride.

What we delivered

  • Two temporary grandstands with a total of 6 000 clearview TM seats 
  • Bespoke structures that tripled the seating capacity  
  • The BT Sport TV studio
  • Video screen support structures
  • Accessible viewing platforms
  • Camera platforms
  • Broadcast cable bridges  

“We have really enjoyed working with Arena. The team has done a great job for us, with a challenging build at one end. We would have no hesitation in using Arena again or in recommending them to others. Arena have been world class in supporting us in delivering a stadium befitting a memorable World Cup for the fans and players.”
