The PopUpArena Legacy Lives On
In terms of any major sporting event legacy, it is what is left after the event is concluded that should have the biggest impact on any local community. We are very proud at PopUpArena that this has happened so successfully with the AS120 Super Sport Package we delivered at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Working in partnership with Glasgow Life, and through their funding, that investment still thrives five years later, with the PopUpArena system still making a big Impact across a broad range public events within the Glasgow area.
Since our first funded project with Sport England in partnership with England Athletics and the Youth Sports Trust in 2009, our uplifting journey has continued with many mini arena style PopUpPitches, Courts and Tracks transforming hundreds of empty grey, green and brown spaces across UK cities and towns engaging local communities at both major sporting events through to local events.
Glasgow Life is a charity that delivers cultural, sporting and learning activities on behalf of Glasgow City Council. In doing so their aim is to make a positive impact on individuals, the communities in which they live and the city as a whole.
No other portable system adds the innovative levels of creativity, impact and engagement to the many brilliant local community projects that encourage people from disadvantaged backgrounds, of any age or ability, to participate in activity. Every PopUpArena is easy to transport, rapid to setup and endures the rigours of frequent installation and extraction across many destinations each year.
