Watford FC – Retractable Players’ Tunnel


When Spaciotempo’s parent company, GL events UK, was redeveloping the stand at Watford FC, they naturally called upon Spaciotempo to deliver a complementary retractable tunnel to help finish the detail of the stand to the highest possible standard.  And because Watford’s new stand was fitted out in the team colours with plenty of eye catching branding, it was easy for Spaciotempo to deliver a player’s tunnel which matched the specification precisely, thanks to our wide range of PVC colours available, and full branding service.


With an enviable track record in the construction of permanent seating and stands for sporting clubs, GL events UK was appointed by Watford FC, to re-develop their new East Stand. The stand was designed and phased to enable the ongoing use of the club’s existing changing facilities and physiotherapy rooms, and involved the installation of a traditional structure for 3000 spectators, with the seating deck formed from pre-cast concrete terrace units. Spectator concessions and club offices were also installed within our flexible and cost-effective build programme.

The branding of the stand, including the seats, dug out area and football tunnel all added to the high level of finish which our customers have come to expect from GL events. Fully branded in Watford FC’s colours, in line with the branding of the rest of the stand, the retractable sports tunnel provides a striking pitch entrance for players and officials alike.

The stadium redevelopment illustrates perfectly how Spaciotempo’s position as part of the GL Events Group can offer real benefits to our customers in the sports and leisure markets allowing them to take advantage of a sporting infrastructure solution which is totally flexible.
