New stadium update: Installation of the outer wrapping

Posted on 6 March 2018  - 17:29

The final wrap of our new stadium has now started to be installed.

Known as the ‘veil’, the wrap is made up of 4,801 perforated metal panels, fitted to modular frames which are affixed to the rear of the stands.

The veil will enclose the building, wrapping around the whole stadium to create a dynamic, flowing exterior.

Manufactured in Germany, certain panels will illuminate, creating a stunning visual effect that will bring the stadium to life.

The first of the panels, which take 45 minutes each to assemble, are now being installed at the rear of the North Stand, facing Lilywhite House.

Remember, you can keep fully up to date with everything that’s happening on site via live cameras and time lapses on our dedicated new stadium website.
