It is impossible for most schools and sports clubs to purchase stadium bleachers without customization. Consumers may think that the biggest decision to make is whether aluminum or steel bleachers would look best in their venues. Smart owners will look at capacity needs, the permanence of seating areas and the type of audience served before purchasing stadium bleachers and bleacher seats.
Finding Custom Stadium Bleachers
The primary consideration for every owner who is buying stadium seats is the number of seats needed for profitability. A minor-league baseball team with an operating cost of $50,000 needs to sell 5,000 seats at $10 per ticket to avoid debt. This hypothetical team must purchase several sets of seats to place along foul poles and outfield areas to create different angles for fans.
High schools and corporations use bleachers for occasional events like staff meetings and birthday parties. These organizations cannot leave rows of stadium seats in place permanently because of limited space. There are smaller bleachers and telescoping seats on the market that can be wheeled out quickly for impromptu events.
Business owners should not overlook their target demographics when purchasing new seats. Sports clubs that cater to younger audiences may be able to get away with basic bleachers without wide aisles and seat backs. ADA compliance and local fire codes should be balanced against demographic considerations during stadium planning.
