Sports & Leisure

The spaces we create channel energy, spark inspiration and incite unforgettable atmospheres.

Our expertise has been refined over decades at some of the greatest clubs and venues across the UK and around the world. We consider the smallest details on the spectator journey that have the biggest impacts – from the fan zones and public realm, to right into the centre of the action.

We have created an international reputation for collaboration, commitment and responsiveness in the face of any challenge.

We create stadia, arenas, training facilities and event masterplans that meet and surpass the standards of international authorities: optimising sound, sightlines, safety and inclusivity. Our architectural design tools are world-leading and have been used on the most high-profile stadia being constructed today.

"AFL have delivered several successful, high level projects, demonstrating a clear awareness of client issues, cost constraints and programme delivery, as well as imaginative design. Their approach is always professional and trustworthy."
