CONCACAF and the partnership marketing arm of the LOC, Soccer United Marketing (SUM) called upon TGI to consult and deliver the LED field signage for the entire event and do so by supplying a full three-sided implementation for each match. Due to the relative late confirmation of the Copa America Centenario event being held in the USA, the LOC and all supporting parties had less than 6 months to plan and prepare for the biggest soccer event to hit the USA since the 1994 World Cup.
TGI Sport provided 7 full LED systems to satisfy the 10 COPA venues. A total of 750-800 linear feet of LED cabinets per each match with a support staff or LED operators, technicians and managers were provided to successfully implement the temporary LED set-up at each venue. Beyond the field of play, TGI Sport was also asked to manage and implement the sponsor and media elements program, as well as the directional / wayfinding programs within each host venue.
Ten venues across the USA played host to the competition: Soldier Field (Chicago), Metlife Stadium (NJ), Gillette Stadium (Boston), Lincoln Financial Field (Philadelphia), Camping World Stadium (Orlando), NRG Stadium (Houston), U. of Phoenix Stadium (Glendale), Rose Bowl (LA), Levi’s Stadium (Santa Clara), & CenturyLink Field (Seattle).
TGI Sport was able to tap into it’s global LED inventory and in combination with our global event staffing expertise and knowledge, we were in a great position to assist the LOC and provide LED solutions and Media Elements in a high quality and fiscally sound manner.
