WJ events was embedded in Johannesburg as part of the overlay design and operations management team on behalf of the South African Football Association and their efforts to transform ten legacy stadiums into FIFA World Cup venues.
The effort was spearheaded with an initial focus on four stadium venues for the 2009 Confederations Cup: Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein, Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg, Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria and Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg.
Here again, WJ events managed the interface of the legacy stadium construction with the overlay design/operations planning for these four stadium competition venues. Beginning with the Master Precinct Planning, our team produced the overlay design, coordinated Commercial Display areas, created food and beverage logistical plans and developed merchandising areas heretofore unknown in these stadiums.
World Cup Venues
Content tenders representing temporary commodity procurement and installation details were developed specifically for each stadium and together with the overlay design detailed drawings created the successful models for the FIFA World Cup’s remaining six venues.
