Shipping containers are durable, long-lasting, and cost-efficient. They’re also adaptable spaces that can be easily modified to suit a variety of purposes. These attributes make them a great choice for re-purposing as sports club facilities. From equipment storage rooms to changing rooms, there are a variety of ways to use containers in the sporting industry. So, with that said, let's explore some shipping container ideas for sports clubs.

Storage and equipment room

If your club needs a place to store equipment or other sports gear, a shipping container is a great option. These single-unit buildings can easily be stacked and secured, making them ideal for storage. They can be designed and installed to be completely watertight and secure for outdoor use meaning they are ideal for storing equipment and keeping it safe and dry all year round.

Changing rooms

Every sports club needs a room for their athletes to change in privacy and shipping containers are an attractive option for use as a changing room because they are durable, easy to maintain and cost-effective. These versatile spaces can be fitted with lockers, benches and other amenities to make them both comfortable and functional. This is a great option for clubs that might not have access to a traditional changing room.

Toilets and shower rooms

Toilets and shower rooms are essential facilities for any sports club. However, they are often a costly investment. Fortunately, shipping containers are a great alternative to an expensive brick-and-mortar building and, they can be designed and installed within a fraction of the time. You can create a fully functional toilet and shower room that has all of the same features that a traditional building would have.


Creating stadium seating out of a shipping container may not be the first thing that springs to mind but due to their durability and robustness, they are the ideal solution for seating spectators. Particularly as conventional stadium seating can be expensive and often out of reach for smaller clubs and teams. Stadia created out of shipping containers can be adapted to suit the needs of the club, with seating over several levels and a roof for protecting spectators against the elements.


Another popular use for shipping containers within the sporting industry is a club canteen. After all, after a long football game or cricket tournament, your athletes are going to be hungry. A shipping container can be easily converted into a canteen to create a low-cost alternative to a traditional building where athletes and spectators can all enjoy a well-earned hot drink and a bite to eat.
