The tunnel extension gave players and officials a safe passage back to the dressing rooms, allowing stewards to be deployed elsewhere in the stadium. It works really well and is very easy for us to operate.”

Case Study

About this job
League One football team Crewe Alexandra FC were looking to increase the safety of officials and players on match-days by adding an extension to their existing tunnel at its Alexandra Stadium so that it could create a continuous covered walkway from the stand onto the pitch.

Requirement
Spaciotempo supplied a shorter tunnel some years ago to meet a previous manager’s wishes for the
crowd to be able to interact with the players as they ran out onto the pitch. However, because this arrangement meant that the entrance to the tunnel could become a flashpoint at the end of highly charged matches, the club needed a longer tunnel in order that such incidents could be avoided.

Tunnel
We added a four metre long retractable extension to the existing tunnel. Made of an aluminium frame, the tunnel stands 2.6m tall and 1.5m wide and retracts to just 30cm long. Covered in the same bright red PVC as the original tunnel, it also bears the branding of the tunnel’s sponsor, ESTC, a Nantwich-based company specialising in training and stewarding in the sports industry.

Outcome
Tony Green, Crewe’s assistant chief steward, said that the tunnel extension gave players and officials a safe passage back to the dressing rooms, allowing stewards to be deployed elsewhere in the stadium.
He added: “The tunnel works really well and is very easy for us to operate.”
