A large-scale project for the FIFA World Cup 2010.

Already contracted as a provider in four South-African cities for the FIFA Confederations Cup 2009, and more recently for the Cup of African Nations, GL events-Oasys were responsible for implementing a wide range of temporary installation services, representing quite impressive volumes of equipment for a single event: Goal posts for training, Officials benches, seats, Players benches, Benches for medical staff, Referees bench. As well as 52,000m² of Temporary Structures, 678 Containers (Office, Storage containers) including 470 Modular Containers and ten buildings comprised of 30 units on two floors, Power distribution: Electrical Power Distribution: over 92,000m of cabling, 50,000m of cable troughs, 1,000 distribution cabinets, 19,000 electrical plugs, 68,000m² of fire detection systems 52,700m² of floor covering (carpet, vinyl), Outfitting of 95 TV / commentator studios, 10 audio and simultaneous translating systems for press conference rooms, 2,500 desks for press and TV commentators, Maritime freight: 150 containers shipped from France.

People at the heart of the company: corporate social responsibility lives and breathes within the Group, above and beyond the simple application of legal texts. It is based on the Group’s historical values. The commitment to human respect is part of our DNA. Thus, 3 key actions have been implemented: a free canteen for local site workers, creation of a minimum salary (50% above the minimum required by South African law), waste management and recycling program, 26 different nationalities, almost 3,000 people on all the sites. For your information this contract, worth over 40 million euros, is historic in many ways. It is one of the largest contracts ever awarded by an Organising Committee to a single provider, and it is also one of the largest for GL events in the field of major sporting events.

The matches were played in ten venues, spread across virtually all of South Africa: Soccer City Stadium and Ellis Park Stadium (Johannesburg), Green Point Stadium (The Cape), Loftus Versfeld Stadium (Pretoria), Peter Mokaba Stadium (Polokwane), Royal Bakofeng Stadium (Rustenburg), Mangaung Stadium (Bloemfontein), Nelson Mandela Stadium (Port Elizabeth), Moces Mabhida Stadium (Ethekwini) and Mbombela Stadium (Nelspruit). The opening match and the final was played on 11 June and 11 July at Soccer City, the largest stadium of the World Cup and one of the largest in the world with 90,000 seats.
