UAEFA President’s Cup Final

A committed team of local and international suppliers battle the heat of Al Ain as fans are welcomed back into a UAE stadium for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic.

Taking place at Al Ain’s Hazza bin Zayed Stadium, The President’s Cup Final saw the long-awaited return of fans to UAE stadiums, with around 1,000 socially distant supporters being treated to a spectacular show – both on and off the pitch. While the on-field action saw Shabab Al Ahli run out 2-1 winners over rivals Al Nasr thanks to two contentious penalty decisions, the impressive pre- and post-match celebrations came thanks to a huge team of live events professionals.

Event Producer Done+Dusted assembled a team of trusted suppliers, with a mixture of international and local companies coming together to deliver the event. The overseas contingent included the likes of Progressive Productions, Stadium FX, Pixmob, and NEWSUBSTANCE, while the extensive lineup of Middle East-based companies included Encore (previously known as eclipse), Creative Technology (CT) Middle East, FLASH ART, Matrix Laser, Gulf Crewing Company, Al Laith, Aggreko, Gallowglass Health & Safety and Dan Bolton Creative Management Agency.
