Sport infrastructure that inspires today

and shapes a better tomorrow



The language of sport may be universal – but that doesn't mean all sport venues are the same.

Each bespoke project brings together a host of variables: type of sport, spectator capacity, ownership model and fan expectations among them.

Our innovative thinking, global benchmark data, unmatched combination of global expertise and local knowledge, and our flawless execution push the boundaries off the field as much as the athletes do on it.

Achieving a gold medal performance

The journey to hosting an international sports event can take many years – but we’re there every step of the way.

Our expertise with new stadiums and major sport events starts at the feasibility and bidding stages, and spans everything from legacy strategy and operational costs to procurement and delivery of major construction projects and games operational temporary facilities.

Whether the challenges are technical, political or cultural, we draw on deep global experience to help our clients navigate a complex multi-stakeholder process.

Delivering a lasting legacy based on a sound business plan

The development of a major sports venue is a huge investment. True value is derived not only from providing a perfect game day experience, but by providing an asset which  supports revenue generation and wider social value on a non match day.

Trends in technology, user experience and urbanisation keep the goal posts moving and sport infrastructure acts as a strong catalyst for urban regeneration.  It anchors communities and adds tangible value to cities.

At RLB, we cost sport venues with our eyes firmly fixed on long-term value – and that means delivering a great sport experience today with enduring community benefits tomorrow.

Optimising fan experience and best value

For many clubs operating in a commercial world, on-pitch success is linked to financial performance off the field.

Ensuring stadiums maximise both the fan experience and revenue opportunities demands a delicate balance – one which RLB’s dedicated team delivers time after time.

Our global experience with sport infrastructure informs our expert due diligence, robust costings and sound business planning. With RLB’s help, you’ll make the right decisions at the right time.
