There’s under two years to go until the 2022 FIFA World Cup kicks off, and we’re already really looking forward it – not only because we’re fanatical football fans, but also because it represents a little ray of light in the COVID-19 gloom. And we’re not just World Cup supporters, we’re also delighted to be taking part, by playing a key role in getting Qatar ready to host what is the biggest and most eagerly anticipated sporting event of the next couple of years.
Thanks to our extensive experience in stadium fit-outs and big-ticket live events, we were commissioned to support the redevelopment of the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha – the first World Cup venue to be finished – as well as the Al-Bayt, the Al-Rayyan and the Al-Thumama: four of the eight host stadia being used at the Middle-East’s first running of the event. What’s more, all these projects were run and managed out of our Doha office, ensuring technical expertise was met by the necessary local knowledge to deliver these projects successfully.
Gravity Media has had a permanent facility and operation in Qatar since 2007, servicing the burgeoning demand for live sport, entertainment, conference and cultural event coverage across the region. The team has recently taken delivery of a newly commissioned mobile unit, Suhail, which has been designed with DSNG capabilities, and can take up to six fixed cameras and two RFs, as well as seating a crew of seven. Suhail is available now for World Cup bookings – but demand is high, so don’t leave it too late.
