GL Events and Nolan Associates have provided the additional seating for the Commonwealth Games to be held in Birmingham from 28th July 2022.
In recent years, the stadium has undergone extensive redevelopment and modernisation, which will increase the legacy capacity to 18,000, quadrupling the number of spectators.
GL Events is an official partner to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
GL events UK will be installing temporary grandstands, which will increase the stadium’s Games-time capacity upwards of 32,000 spectators. All structures have been designed by Nolan Associates.
In addition to the temporary seating grandstands to the North (6,674 seats) and South (7,612 seats) of the stadium, GL events UK is also providing giant temporary lighting towers, video board infrastructure, containment, hospitality structures and media tribunes as part of their extensive overlay delivery.
