Newcastle firm in running to build WC 2014 stadiums

Tue 2nd Feb 2010 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

A North East firm has put together a consortium which is in the running to build several new football stadiums in Brazil ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

Newcastle-based A World of Golf (AWG) has brought together a group of heavyweight businesses from the sports consultancy and construction sectors to bid for a share of 11 contracts for new build stadiums across Brazil.

AWG, which is primarily involved in designing and managing the construction of golf courses and resorts around the world, is hopeful of winning up to five of the contracts.

A decision on the contracts will be made by Brazilian state authorities - in partnership with football’s governing body FIFA - by the end of this year.

If successful, AWG will work alongside global construction firms Davis Langdon and Waterman Group, sports turf specialist SIS and Top Green – a French firm which develops grass suitable for various sports.

Brazil will host the World Cup for the second time in the tournament’s history in 2014 and the country’s authorities are keen to upgrade the stadiums and surrounding infrastructure in the host cities.

AWG will draw on its expertise of managing the development of large-scale golf courses and related facilities such as hotels, access roads and entertainment venues.
