London Stadium open-air event space to debut

A new and unique event space, the first of its kind in the UK, has arrived at London Stadium just in time for the summer ‘21 event schedule.

The North Scoreboard Deck provides a versatile area inside the main bowl for up to 1,000 attendees and is available to hire for corporate events and parties.

Guests can take in the pitch and impressive surroundings of the former Olympic Stadium while watching a sports screening, or a performance on a stage while on the deck.

Government Covid regulations can be safely managed within the outdoor space, while shielded from the weather by the stadium roof, in one of London’s biggest covered outdoor event spaces.

In addition, the immaculate Premier League football pitch will be available to hire from the end of the current season, including the full match-day experience, with home and away dressing rooms, a tunnel walk, and high spec LED scoreboards.

Post-match hospitality packages including the North Scoreboard Deck can be included with pitch hire for bespoke screenings, such as watching this year’s Olympic events within the 2012 Stadium, or to play a game of football on a Premier League pitch before watching a Euro 2020 match.

The Stadium Island remains another distinctive feature of the site, with 20,000 m2 of event space available to hire for music and food festival set ups, with multiple stages and retail outlets, or mass participation sports events combining brand and experiential activations.

Known as one of the world’s best multi-use venues, the stadium has hosted the 2015 Rugby World Cup, the London 2017 World Athletics Championships, the 2019 Major League Baseball London Series, Premier League football, international and Premiership rugby and performers like the Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, Guns N’ Roses and Beyoncé.

Graham Gilmore, CEO, London Stadium, said:

The adaptability of our Stadium allows us to adjust to the current situation and provide something extra special for our guests when they return. The spectacular North Scoreboard Deck creates a new opportunity for screenings or VIP experiences in bowl, while enjoying the incredible scenery of the venue. Add the chance to play on the world class pitch, and you have an outstanding offering for visitors this summer.
