Capacity at the historic Oval cricket ground is increased with a new stand of 5,295 seats. The design provides high quality viewing and new spaces for members and fans, to improve visitor experience.
The Peter May stand is approximately one fifth of the overall capacity of the ground. New facilities include a large concourse below and elevated roof garden for members and for corporate hospitality events. This elevated area provides a perfect view of play on the pitch. The garden and stand are flanked by a new living wall to the outside to provide screening for local residents.
The existing stand was demolished and replaced with a new design cleverly inserted in its place, but positioned further forward to create an additional 1,448 seats. The space below the stand is also now fully utilised with an expanded concourse area providing new bars, catering and toilets and to provide additional covered space.
The fast track demolition and building of the new stand was completed under budget and entirely in the off season from September to April.
The new stand retains the name of Peter May who captained the winning England Ashes team in 1956 and was one of the greatest captains in the history of Surrey County Cricket Club.
