Kick off the Season in Style with a Spaciotempo Football Tunnel

Football clubs that want to kick off the new season in style can achieve their goal with a Spaciotempo retractable sports tunnel.
Some of the country’s most prestigious players can be seen on match days running out of the top-quality walkways and onto the pitch.
High-profile clubs including Manchester United, Preston North End and West Ham United are among the clubs that have commissioned a temporary tunnel from the UK’s leading supplier.
And it is easy to see why.
Spaciotempo’s tunnels can be custom-designed to feature logos from clubs and sponsors or to promote messages related to specific marketing campaigns.
Huddersfield Town FC took full advantage of this bespoke offering and became the talk of top-flight football when it commissioned a tunnel cover with a twist.
In order to maximise publicity for its sponsor – John Smith’s – it requested a unique walkway to exactly replicate the brewery’s iconic beer can design.
The tunnel, measuring 8.34m x 2.4m with an eave height of 2.2m when fully extended, features an eye-catching green background, white lettering and the famous magnet emblem.
Operations Manager at The John Smith’s Stadium Phil Armitage said: “John Smith’s really wanted something different that would stand out and get the attention of spectators, which this tunnel most definitely does! Spaciotempo was very flexible in its design process and the team was keen to help us achieve this truly unique tunnel.
“We worked with Spaciotempo when we had our original tunnel installed and the process was smooth and hassle-free from beginning to end so it made perfect sense to go back to the company when we required a replacement cover. It took the team just half a day to fit it so there was minimum disruption and maximum impact.”
Similarly, Dorking Wanderers wanted to make a statement when it commissioned a tunnel for its brand new £8million Meadowbank football ground, managed by Surrey FA.
The club’s distinctive blue, white and red crest is emblazoned on a vibrant PVC cover.
The tunnel has also proved to be the perfect showcase for the logo of the team’s sponsors Stonegate Homes.
Surray FA Chief Executive Caroline McRoyall said the tunnel, measuring 4.12m x 4.5m with an eave height of 2.99m when fully extended, is the stadium’s crowning glory.
She added: “This eye-catching tunnel certainly reflects Dorking Wanderers’ overall message that it means business. The tunnel really is a stand-out feature at the new ground and is definitely a talking point for fans and players. It not only looks great, it is hard-wearing, easy to use and promotes the club’s badge as well as the sponsor’s logo. Spaciotempo offered excellent quality at a good price – we couldn’t have asked for more.”
Spaciotempo’s retractable tunnels are available in sizes ranging from 2m x 3m x 2m right up to 15m x 15.6m x 5m, guaranteeing a solution to meet every requirement.
They feature anodised aluminium structural arches, connected by galvanised steel pantographs, to create a truly robust product.
The walkways are made of tough, flame-retardant PVC-coated covers and come in single panels of a metre wide, allowing for cost-effective replacement of small sections and rapid rebranding if required. They can be also fitted with rubber wheels for ease of extending and retracting.
The sports tunnels come in a wide variety of colours to match team strips and can be designed to feature anything from basic graphics to full branding.
Furthermore, they can be connected to external or internal walls, stand independently or be anchored into position.
Spaciotempo’s operations teams, which are all fully trained and compliant with health and safety regulations, can quickly install the tunnels with minimal disruption.
Tunnels Specialist Harrison Pearson said: “We believe in providing our customers with a top-quality product and a first-class service. Our retractable tunnels are cost-effective, easy to use and offer maximum space with minimal fuss.
“They provide protection for players as they enter and exit the pitch and can be designed to act as a marketing tool for football clubs and their sponsors. We have a long and proud history of working with football clubs who are right at the top of the game as well as with the rising stars of the future. Whatever league your team is in, we guarantee to provide you with a premiership experience.”

Arsenal Showcases Accessibility to England Powerchair Captain

Accessibility for power and manual wheelchair users has improved massively at the country’s biggest football clubs over the years as they seek to meet the needs of all their fans.
The Emirates, home of Arsenal, is one of the leaders of the pack, implementing substantial changes to accommodate as many fans with disabilities as possible. And that’s not just for match day, as their stadium tour is also a fully accessible experience.
Ottobock invited life-long Arsenal Jon Bolding, captain of the England powerchair football team, to put the Juvo B5 mid-wheel drive powerchair to the test on the Emirates’ official stadium tour with his dad, John.
Jon, who has a rare muscular condition called central core myopathy, needs a wheelchair almost all the time, and drives a specially reinforced powerchair for playing his football, both for his club, Aspire PFC in Watford, and for England, for whom he’s been scoring goals for more than six years.
He and his dad accessed all floors of the stadium to see the home and away changing rooms, the press conference room and media centre, the directors’ box, the trophy room and museum and finally went pitchside by the hallowed turf.
The Juvo B5 made light work of the tour, navigating tight bends, differing surfaces and small spaces with ease, while for Jon, the day was made even better by a smooth and comfortable driving experience.
He said: “Because it’s a mid-wheel-drive you can manoeuvre in and out of tight obstacles and the riser allowed me to see different views of things and access things that maybe I couldn’t have done before.”
After the tour, and some retail therapy in the club shop, Jon and his dad made their way to one of the most popular club pubs, the Tollington Arms, for a well-earned drink and some lunch.
“I’m an Arsenal fan so this day has been a dream really, and to go around the stadium in this chair, with the comfort that it brings, has given it that extra special feel,” he said.
“And a big thanks to Arsenal for putting everything in place and allowing wheelchair users and manual wheelchair users the opportunity to experience the Emirates. The tour has been so accessible, I’ve been able to experience every part of it. There’s been no stairs, or anything out of my reach. It’s been a really brilliant day.”
