Stadium Seating for Schools and Sports Clubs: Made from Shipping Containers

Stadium Seating for Schools and Sports Clubs: Made from Shipping Containers

Big Box is always looking at new and innovative ways to repurpose shipping containers to offer our clients useful products that save them time and money. One of our most recent conversions involved turning shipping containers into portable stadium seating or bleachers.

The instant bleacher seating is available to rent from Big Box Containers, so consider this simpler seating alternative for your next sporting or outdoor event.

The benefits of shipping container bleachers

We’ve designed our container sports stands so that they take advantage of many of the innate benefits that steel shipping containers have to offer.

The stadium seating still keeps the basic form of a shipping container which makes the frame exceptionally sturdy, even in the face of high winds. You also don’t have to worry about the bleachers collapsing under the weight of many excited spectators.


The steel structures are just as durable as the shipping containers they are made from. There is no risk of the stands deteriorating and becoming unstable if they stand outdoors, even for a few months.


The sports stands can be picked up and moved anywhere in a matter of minutes. There is also no long and complicated construction required. The whole structure is designed to be simple and easily portable for either once-off events or long-term seating.

Our container seating is certainly more affordable than building bleachers from scratch and they can be rented on a monthly basis, so you only need to keep them as long as they’re required. After which, Big Box can come and collect them until you need them again.


The container bleachers create instant seating, so they can be placed alongside any field to create a small stadium of sorts. They can just as easily be placed alongside tracks as well, making them perfect for sports days and fun runs.


The converted container bleachers also have a solid roof and back making them well sheltered from the rain, wind and direct sun. Spectators can continue enjoying events even if the weather becomes inclement.
