Comfort update for FC Schalke 04’s VELTINS-Arena

The VELTINS-Arena, home ground of FC Schalke 04, is definitely a highlight among Germany’s soccer stadia and is one that is regularly sold-out. In the course of the renovations of the hospitality area in the stadium, Stechert Group installed approximately 2,000 of their new model, Hamburg VIP, seats.

The new seats not only benefit from perfect dimensions, but also from high-class cold foam upholstery, modern design and individuality.

All of the new seats were upholstered with royal blue (Schalke’s club colours) artificial leather and refined with a print of Schalke’s club logo. Sponsor plates at the front of the folding seats ensure that visitors find their seats quickly and easily. All of this ensuring that the comfort level in this newly renovated area of the VELTINS-Arena is improved.

The new seats also allowed for an increase in capacity of nearly 300 seats at the stadium, from 61,973 to 62,271.

This is Stechert’s second project at the VELTINS-Arena in a short period; with the company having installed the same Hamburg VIP model in all of the stadium’s VIP boxes back in 2013.
