Renting Porta-Potties for Sports Events

Whether you’re planning a large regional sports tournament or small-scale friendly match, you’ll need restrooms for the players and spectators. Renting porta-potties for sports events can sometimes be tricky. When and where they’ll need to be used can influence which type of unit you should rent and how many you’ll need. Some sports venues have their own permanent restrooms that can be supplemented with porta-potties. Others will need portable restrooms to service their entire event. When renting porta-potties for sports events during any season, consider the following criteria:


You will first need to decide how many portable toilets to rent to ensure that there will be enough for participants and spectators before, during, and after the event. Use our handy calculator to determine how many portable toilets to rent for your sports event. As a general rule of thumb, you will need to rent 1 porta-potty for every 50 guests for every 3 hours that the event will last. Remember, it’s always better to rent a few more units than you’ll need to avoid long lines and frustrated spectators. You can also increase capacity by renting additional holding tanks for waste to allow units to go longer between service.


Climate-controlled restroom trailers are a better option for both the cold and hot weather seasons! Our luxury trailers are equipped with heat for cool, fall tournament days and also feature A/C for sweltering summer days. Luxury trailers have enough room for players to change before or after games as well!

Wind is another consideration that should be taken into account. If possible, shield portable toilets from the wind. It’s impossible to predict the weather, but if an event is going to be held someplace that’s prone to higher winds, blocking the wind will help make users more comfortable. Placing portable units in sunnier areas during cooler months helps to keep units warm as well.


For larger venues you’ll need to space out placement – putting them near parking lots, sports field/courts, and concessions. The goal is to provide easy access no matter where spectators are to offer convenience. This may require renting additional units or adding luxury portable restrooms to increase your footprint. Remember to check local zoning laws and permits before placing them on public lands to avoid any issues the day of your sporting event as well.
