We supplied temporary seating and an ASD (Arena Super Deck) temporary structure for the first-ever Major League Baseball (MLB) Series in Europe on 29 & 30 June 2019, where the Boston Red Sox played famed rival the New York Yankees at London Stadium.
Announced in May 2018, the Mitel & MLB Present London Series is part of a long-term strategy to grow Major League Baseball in Europe spanning two years, 2019 and 2020. London Stadium was transformed into a 60,000-seater ballpark where the famous rivals played each other for the first time ever on British soil. The decision was made to install artificial turf instead of real grass, and much of the materials were shipped in from across the world, with the artificial grass coming from France and the clay shipped over from Pennsylvania in the US.
“It was incredibly exciting to learn we won this project, being such an iconic sporting team coming to the UK we were honoured to be able to assist in the production of such a historic event. In addition to seating, we are also providing our new ASD temporary structure which is a new product to the market”
