Stuart Canvas were recently approached by Milton Keynes Dons football club, the club had an upcoming game that would be broadcast on Sky Sports, this would be an important game for the EFL League One side. Due to the TV broadcast, some of the sponsorship logos around the 30,500 seater Stadium MK would need changing. This would include the retractable players tunnel which is used when the players are entering and exiting the pitch.

Painting of Logos onto Keder Panels

Stuart Canvas  have manufactured and installed players tunnels for football clubs across the UK including many premier leagues sides, this experience meant that we could quickly produce new panels for the tunnel at MK Dons within the tight timeframe of the televised game. We produced the new tunnel branding using the Keder system, which consists of individual PVC panels, typically 1.1m wide which are produced to the same width of each pentagraph centre of the tunnel frame. Each panel is sewn with the keder on both sides and high frequency welded to create a waterproof structure.

New Panels Being Installed

The new Suzuki branding was then hand-painted onto each kedar panel by our in-house specialists. The panels were then installed overnight by our install team at the Stadium MK ready for the big game the next day.
