Arena Group has been awarded the contract for the Ryder Cup 2014 to supply a comprehensive range of temporary structures at Gleneagles.
Following a competitive tender process, Arena Group will once again design and install seated grandstands and multi-storey venues around the PGA Centenary Course.
The company will provide triple and double decker hospitality structures overlooking the greens of the 18th and 12th holes, including interior fit out and furniture as well as the media centre, grandstand seating and on-course event structures across the golf course.
Arena Seating is also finalising plans to install approximately 15,000 seats around the course, including a 1,500 (minimum) capacity horseshoe shaped clearview grandstand around the first tee, as well as a 2,000-plus capacity grandstand at the 18th green.
Grahame Muir, CEO of Arena Group, UK and Europe, said: “We are proud to have been selected to be part of the team which will create an unforgettable Ryder Cup in Scotland.
“The investment we made into developing clearview and Arcus Horizon products at the Olympics have allowed us to improve the range and quality of the design-led overlay we have been able to offer The Ryder Cup team for Gleneagles.”
Arena Structures will also install the curved-roof Arcus structure for the 15m x 100m triple deck Aviemore Pavilion overlooking the 18th green.
“We are delighted to appoint Arena Structures and Seating to deliver the tentage and grandstands at The 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles,” said Europe’s Ryder Cup match director Edward Kitson. “We have a very strong partnership with Arena having worked with them at numerous European Tour events and at every home Ryder Cup match since 1989, and their professionalism and exemplary standards made them an automatic choice for Ryder Cup Europe.”
