Camatic’s seating solution on show at FIFA World Cup

Camatic’s seating solution on show at FIFA World Cup
June 26, 2018

Seating solutions from Melbourne-based Camatic Seating are currently in use at the Kazan Arena, one of the venues for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

The installation of 28,000 of the Australian company’s ALPHA seats at the World Cup venue is one of a number of significant projects, both at home and internationally, that Camatic has equipped over the past few years.

Domestically, Camatic’s two major recent projects have been in Victoria.

The first was the installation of 5,000 seats at the redeveloped western grandstand at Ballarat’s Eureka Stadium.

Camatic’s ALPHA seat with an auto flip-up feature was installed with a randomised colour scheme of blues and greys.

Its other main local installation was that of approximately 5,000 seats as part of stage 4 of the redevelopment of Geelong’s GMHBA Stadium. It is also currently reseating Rod Laver Arena, the home of the Australian Open in Melbourne.

Overseas, the Wantirna manufacturer installed over 68,000 seats at Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium in California – the venue for 2016 NFL Super Bowl; provided over 80,000 seats for the refurbishment of the Bukit Jalil stadium in Kuala Lumpur in advance of Malaysia’s hosting of the Asian Games last year as well as installing 70,000 seats at the recently opened state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

With a history in the USA going back to providing seats for the main Olympic Stadium at the 1996 Atlanta Games, other recent high-profile contracts in North America include the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, Texas; 5,500 seats at the NFL Hall of Fame in Ohio, USA; the 65,000-seat US Bank (Minnesota Viking’s) stadium in Minneapolis and about 17,000 seats for MGM’s T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas as well as several MLS stadia. 

In the United Kingdom, Camatic has also secured recent seating contracts at the historic Headingley cricket venue in Leeds and for the home of tennis at Wimbledon.

In a statement on their export successes, Camatic advise “at first people are quite often amazed that an Australian-owned company that manufactures in Australia could secure these blue-ribbon venues around the world (but) whilst our location may be geographically disadvantageous for the US and European markets, this is more than offset by a cutting-edge design and engineering capability that has been fostered and strengthened since the inception of the company over 50 years ago.

“This commitment has led to Camatic developing many unique products over the years.”
