Austin, Texas (PRWEB) November 11, 2013
Fans of all ages enjoyed playing a game of football at the FIFA Fan Zone this year, on the synthetic turf mini-pitch provided by Act Global. Among the visitors to the pitch was the United Arab Emirates national football team.
The Fan Zone is located in the capital city Abu Dhabi, one of six host cities for the FIFA U-17 World Cup. In addition to the mini-pitch, the Fan Zone also entertained visitors with a variety of football-themed activities, a human foosball game, a skills and game area and giveaways.
“Our company is excited to be part of such a celebration of football,” said Chris Clapham, managing director of Act Global. “The provision of the turf for the Fan Zone provided Act Global with a rewarding opportunity to strengthen our relationships within the football community as well as demonstrate the quality of our Xtreme Turf product.”
Act Global local partner Raymond Sport provided support installing the mini-pitch and staffing the company’s stand at the Fan Zone.
