Zonal marking, strong defence and impressive height advantage – Actavo relishes ‘utility’ role with football’s top-flight

With anticipation mounting as the 2017-2018 Premier League kicks off this weekend, Actavo looks back on a successful past season (and summer) working with the top flight of British and European football.

A highlight of recent months for Actavo’s Hire & Sales Cardiff branch was supplying all temporary security fencing & crowd control barriers for the Hospitality Village in Cardiff Civic Centre, associated with the UEFA Champions League Cup Final in June.

The branch also supplied over 4km of crowd control barriers for all Cardiff railway stations on match day (facilitating the safe transit of fans arriving and departing) and over 2km of temporary site fencing for both Associated British Ports (ABP) Cardiff & ABP Newport Docks (facilitating the arrival of two cruise ships that berthed in South Wales for the week of the Champions League final).

In the Premier League, the Actavo | Events team provided perimeter crowd control solutions to Arsenal FC and West Ham United for London’s Emirates and Olympic stadiums respectively, while our Hire & Sales branch in Bournemouth last season provided AFC Bournemouth with towered infrastructure for the club’s new training facility.

In addition, Actavo’s Hire & Sales branch in Birmingham was proud to supply 500m of solid galvanised hoarding earlier this year to aid major refurbishment taking place at the bet365 Stadium, home to Stoke City FC.
