The National Gymnastics Arena, or Milli Gimnastika Arenası, in Baku, Azerbaijan is was designed to have expansive space that is as adaptable as possible, with a nod to Azerbaijan’s excellence in rhythmic gymnastics.

Primarily designed as an indoor stadia to accommodate rhythmic gymnastic competitions,  the permanent seating saw the installation of 3,319 m²  [35,725 ft²] of SPS stadia decking for this new gymnastics arena, which can accommodate anywhere from 5000 to 9000 spectators, depending on the event requirements.

This indoor stadia comprises the gymnastics arena, a 2,500 m training hall, a medical centre, canteens, offices, and 16,000 m² of landscaped gardens. In addition to the permanent Sandwich Plate System stands, there is retractable and moveable seating and the arena can be easily adapted to host various sporting events and concerts.

The SPS units were so light and easy to position. We simply followed the keyplan and erected it just like steel – in fact, easier.
