Overlay Management Solution

We guaranteed the overlay delivery of the whole FIFA World Cup in compliance with all FIFA requirements and operational standards

ARENA was selected and hired by the Local Organising Committee and FIFA as its technical Engineer & Architecture Department, responsible for all overlay development/maps & plans drawings and putting in place the entire procurement strategy.

ARENA built a complete and comprehensive overlay procurement model, compiling heavy and detailed technical documentation (drawings and BOQs), guiding the full process to the 12 Host Cities. After the contractors had been appointed, ARENA also managed all suppliers on-site, monitoring the schedule and event technical adherence compliance.
