Gloucester Rugby Club 

South Stand Redevelopment at the Kingsholm Stadium

View Photos


Kingsholm’s original South Stand opened in 1932, and, with capacity for just 1,800 spectators, was no longer fit for purpose.

With the club’s stadium based in the heart of rugby country, there was a clear requirement for improved spectator facilities for fans of the Cherry and Whites.

Exceeding expectations

Stadia by GL events more than tripled capacity at the home of Gloucester Rugby, demolishing and removing the existing structure and constructing an all-seater grandstand with pre-cast concrete terraces, capable of accommodating 7,000 fans.

Seating options

Our design incorporated elevated hospitality boxes, located on a secondary balcony-level, high above the main spectator seating. This allowed a greater seating capacity in the main terraces; which consist of part-permanent and part-demountable seating, with additional VIP areas.

Maximising space

The new spectator stand at Kingsholm makes the most of every available space. The facility incorporates club administration facilities, several restaurants, bars, concessions, conference facilities, offices and changing rooms.

This is rugby land. This stadium project was not just for the city of Gloucester, but the whole of the West Country and wider community.
