Arena On Course for The Ryder Cup 2018

European event contractor Arena Group is currently on course at Le Golf National in Paris, France, installing event scaffolding for the Ryder Cup.

Arena has once again been selected by The Ryder Cup, which takes place from 25-30 September, to install event infrastructure, extending a relationship that spans over 20 years.

Every two years the tournament sees teams comprised of Europe and the USA’s leading golfers contest the prestigious trophy, with venues alternating between Europe and the US.

Edward Kitson, match director of The 2018 Ryder Cup, said:

This is only the second time the Ryder Cup has been hosted in mainland Europe, rather than the United Kingdom. It is reassuring to know that we have Arena on board to underpin the delivery of a spectacular tournament.

Arena Scaffolding was one of the first event contractors on site, from 9 April, to begin the installation of over 12,500m2 of scaffolding sub-structures, temporary bridges, walkways, steps, timber walls and cladding.

Arena will also be providing temporary structures and event furniture to support the organiser’s vision of producing a truly world class golf event for the players, live spectators and vast TV audience.

Grahame Muir, CEO Arena UK & Europe, said:

Arena has a long and cherished pedigree of supporting golf events throughout the world. The Ryder Cup is a very special event and one that the entire team at Arena really look forward to working on. Uniquely Arena is contracted to deliver both the UK and US legs of this tournament. We have an ever increasing inventory of equipment to ensure we can achieve and exceed the challenges and aspirations of the Ryder Cup staging team. We look forward to transforming this golf course into stunning event space.
