GL events Owen Brown to shelter England at World Cup 2010

GL events Owen Brown will be providing the FA with temporary structures to house the England Team Media Centre at this summer’s FIFA World Cup.

They will also supply temporary coverings for fan zones, refreshment areas and retail and merchandise outlets at the prestigious event in South Africa.

The Derbyshire based firm, who have worked alongside the FA for the past twelve years, will be sending out ten site workers later this month to start the build.

It’s going to be a busy summer for the company as they have also secured a deal with the Women’s Rugby World Cup. Owen Brown has a history of providing structures for rugby and this August will arrange temporary structures, picket fencing, screening, trailer toilets and spectator seating for the event in England.

Ben Keast, Senior Account Manager at Owen Brown says “We are proud to be part of this world class sporting event; we are looking forward to working alongside WRWC to produce a memorable event on the sporting calendar.”
