Event seating specialists Arena Seating played their part in the transformation of Wembley Stadium for the record-breaking Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitchscko fight; 29,04,2017.
A capacity 90,000 crowd saw the British fighter produce the performance of his career to stop the Ukranian in the 11th round and take the WBA world heavyweight title after a dramatic fight, which, having seen both boxers on their backs, looked set to be decided on points.
Arena Seating supported event promoter Matchroom, working with site manager Chuck Crampton to co-ordinate all of the logistical installation on the Wembley pitch, supplying 10,500 flat tip-up seats, allowing fans and VIP ringside guests to get a great view of the action.
The Arena Seating crew, led by project director Martin Clark, had to work in a small time window as the stadium was the venue for two FA Cup semi-finals the previous weekend and the pitch needed to be back to normal as soon as possible for May’s busy programme of football play-off matches and cup finals.
Frank Smith, Matchroom head of boxing states:
“Martin and the Arena Seating team have been unbelievable. Great.”
The event is another milestone in UK based Arena Seating’s work on major boxing events at Wembley Stadium, the company having worked on both Carl Froch v George Groves bouts.
