ICC REQUEST STADIUM SERVICES PROPOSALS FOR THE 2011 CRICKET WORLD CUP

The International Cricket Council and the central organising committee are requesting proposals from companies to provide stadium signage services for the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup.

The successful company or companies will be granted the rights and responsibilities to deliver signage requirements of the tournament, which is the third biggest sporting event in the world.

The contract would include supply and management of on-field and perimeter signage.

ICC Commercial General Manager, Campbell Jamieson said: “Signage is an extremely important function of the event from an ICC, sponsorship and broadcast perspective.

“The highest quality standards must be applied to achieve the desired result for all stakeholders. The ICC Cricket World Cup is the flagship event of the limited-overs game, the ultimate prize.

“It is critical the provision of signage services and equipment for the event are of similarly world-class nature.”

The One-Day International competition will be staged in the host nations of Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka.

In total, 14 nations will compete against each other to make it to the final at the 45,000-seater Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, India.
