German rail 'seats' now here on British shores

The sample rail seats, from a batch made for the current redevelopment project at VfB Stuttgart, have been sent to Eheim's UK partners, Ferco Seating Systems Ltd.

Eheim have installed seating at some of Europe's most prestigious stadia, including Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena, Formula 1's Hockenheimring and the St Petersburg Stadium in Russia.

Showcase clients for Eheim's safe standing 'Variositze' or 'hi-rail seats' include miracle club TSG Hoffenheim (promoted from tier 5 to tier 1 inside 10 years) and 2007 German champions VfB Stutgart. Ferco's reference client in the UK - for whom they installed 60,000 very plush seats at the Emirates - is Arsenal.

Look out for more news coming soon on Eheim 'hi-rail seats' and the safe standing roadshow!
