Why A Storage Container Is Perfect For Football Clubs

Thursday 22 April 2021 Filed in: General

Shipping containers are a common sight on football club grounds. Strong, secure and versatile they can be used for general storage of club equipment, or at the other end they can be converted to provide a clubhouse, which can incorporate an office, toilets, changing area, and even a snack bar.

Containers Direct also provide "pop up" containers for football clubs to provide food and drinks to their supporters on match days. Whatever your need is for a shipping container to benefit your football club, we have plenty of options!

Extra space and secure storage

A storage container is an ideal place to place to lock up your kits, training equipment, even seating, when not in use. Metal storage containers are weatherproof, vandal and theft proof and come in a wide range of sizes to cater for both large and small clubs. Choose from either flat pack containers for smaller loads or areas with tricky access, or modified shipping containers, cut down to any size and offered with a wide range of optional extras.

Flat pack containers for football clubs

These come in a range of sizes - a standard width of 2.1m and a choice of either 2m, 3m or 4m in length. As self-assembly is required, and delivery costs are far lower than with rigid structures, they are often the preferred choice for clubs on a careful budget. Flat pack containers are ideal for areas with tight access as they are man portable, or for situations which may require the unit to be moved around from time to time. This can be done without the need for a specialist truck, but can be done by hand by disassembling the container back to flat pack parts.

Shipping containers for club storage

Shipping containers are incredibly tough and will give you lasting performance. Choose from unmodified used or once used 20ft or 40ft shipping containers, or containers cut down to your required length. 10ft shipping containers are popular with smaller clubs, along with our specially designed S1 style storage doors that are great for frequent use as they are much easier to handle than original shipping container doors. Our optional extras popular with football clubs including ply lining to eliminate condensation in the container, electrics and an exterior repaint in club colours.

As an additional security feature a lockbox to protect the padlock is fitted for free with all our shipping containers under 40ft. Your football equipment will be safe and secure in our shipping containers!

Shipping container conversions for football clubs

Take a look at some of our conversion work we have undertaken for football clubs and sporting organisations, including a bar for Shrewsbury Town FC, a hot dog stand for Beaconsfield FC, and a clubhouse featuring three joined up containers for Bolton Indian Sports Club. With a combination of kitchen facilities and lockable serving hatches these facilities were very popular with the clubs' supporters! We can work with your own design, or you may prefer to choose our standardised catering conversion, the MenuBox.

Or if you are looking for office space for your club, then take a look at our ModiBox range of standardised portable offices. And as shipping containers are classed as temporary structures, you may not even need planning permission.
