Leeds Arena, 13,500 capicity, The fan-shaped layout not only provides an atmosphere of gladiatorial intensity, it will also provide perfect sightlines for every single spectator.
The retractable sections themselves are crucial to the arena’s diversity and therefore its revenue potential: The large units open and close using power trucks. Used sometimes in front of the permanent tiers, sometimes facing them, and sometimes encircling a sports court, they are designed to be moved quickly and easily on forklifts.
As for the seats themselves, in line with the arena’s philosophy of giving each spectator “the best seat in the house”, They have also been supplied to the arena with tough plastic panels to the back which wrap around the upholstery to protect it and lengthen its life. High backed versions of the chairs are used throughout the VIP and suite areas – differentiating these premium zones while maintaining the arena’s unified aesthetic.
With cherry red upholstery, the towering rake of seating will certainly prove a daunting sight for the performers or sportsmen on the stage – and that’s before the 13,500 spectators crowd in.
