FIFA FanZone Wins Award!

Fan Zone wins ‘Innovative Solution of the Year’ Award

The Brazil 2014 Fan Zone, developed by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), including retractable roof by Fabric Architecture, has won the 2015 World Stadium Congress ‘Innovative Solution of the Year’ award.

“Created to test and showcase a scale model of one of the cooling technologies which will be used at the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™, partially at the proposed host venues and mainly for open air public gatherings, the open-air fan zone allowed football fans in Qatar to watch 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ matches at a temperature on average 12 degrees Celsius lower inside than outside.” SC

Our solution featured a large-scale retractable roof system with integrated climate control.
