Cheadle End seating upgrades at Edgeley Park

Stadia by GL events worked hard to breathe new life into one of the UK’s oldest football clubs, by supplying new general admission seating at their 120-year old stadium.

The impressive Cheadle End at Edgeley Park Stadium, home to Stockport County Football Club, has capacity for 5,062 spectators. As part of a series of essential upgrades, the club worked with Stadia by GL events to renew tired, worn-out seating components in this impressive stand.

Time for an upgrade

As part of the club’s investment in the mass maintenance upgrade of components at Edgeley Park Stadium, Stockport County FC wanted to repair and replace the existing seats at the Cheadle End Stand to give it a new lease of life. Over time, the seats had become discoloured and were in a state of disrepair. Left unattended, the existing seating could have posed a safety issue for spectators.


With spectator seating in the stand nearing the end of its life, Stadia by GL events approached Stockport County FC to supply new components for repair and replacement, owing to a pre-existing relationship held with the club. The team worked to supply general admission seats and backs, in colours that matched the rest of this historic stadium.

Top quality seating

As a result, Stadia by GL events supplied new plastics and metalwork, to provide renewed longevity, durability and vibrance. The replacement seating components were specified in resplendent blue and white, in keeping with club branding. As part of the process, Stockport were grateful for the work ethic of Help the Hatters; a team of volunteers who assisted with the installation.

The upgrade of seating in the Cheadle End provides one of the finishing touches to a series of upgrades and improvements at Edgeley Park. We were extremely impressed by the positive, can-do attitude of Stadia by GL events, and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to other clubs wanting to improve their facilities.
