We supplied 4 specially modified CARU containers for the creation of a Fan Court for Rotterdam football club Excelsior.
As Rotterdam-born company, we have had a warm relationship with Rotterdam football club Excelsior for years. The club is growing: the stands are always packed and that means more facilities are needed. The solution? The Excelsior Fan Court. Built with 4 specially modified CARU containers.
For the last few seasons, Excelsior has been playing the Eredivisie, Holland’s top level in the football league system. This success has been attracting a steadily growing number of fans, meaning facilities will have to grow accordingly. Getting something to eat or drink was becoming too much of a hassle.
Excelsior has created the Fan Court: a central place on the grounds where supporters meet before and during the match. A place to have a snack, a beer, and a chat. We supplied 4 specially modified CARU containers:
• Snack container
• Drinks container
• Fanshop container
• E-sports container
We fitted the snack and drinks containers with refrigerators, deep fryers, and other kitchen appliances. Hungry and thirsty fans can meet at the court for a snack and a drink. The Fanshop sells shirts, scarves, and other Excelsior merchandise. And in the e-sports container, fans can go head to head with a game of FIFA.
“With the Fan Court, we have been able to contribute to a place specially for the Excelsior fans. The club is growing fast, and a place like this helps to maintain the small-scale, community spirit of Excelsior.”
