East Stand replacement and redevelopment at Bloomfield Road

Blackpool FC needed to replace its East Stand fast, to boost capacity following the club’s promotion to the Premier League.

Cash flow at the club was slender and time constraints even tighter; with the project posing the added challenge of a 1.8m ground-level variance.

Major upgrade

The existing facility was demolished and removed, before construction began on a steelwork stand, with cladding to the roof and rear elevation, supported on 120 steel piles – which were driven to a depth of 22m and encased in concrete. Seating was installed for 5,070 spectators, with a camera platform and more than 100 media positions.

Planning for the future

Stadia by GL events delivered the entire project, from initial design to final fit-out, in just eight weeks; on time and within budget. Best of all, we handed over a future-proofed solution. The East Stand is scalable, giving Blackpool FC the option to add capacity quickly and easily, including hospitality and concessions facilities.

The mandate was to maximise capacity, quickly, which we achieved through the addition of the East Stand.
