2020 UEFA European Football Championship

Core Associates provided support to the Scottish Football Association for the delayed 2020 UEFA Football Championship. Inputs included co-ordination of all relevant statutory approvals, Health and Safety advice, liaison with the SFA and UEFA and their supply chain for the overlay facilities at Hampden.

As with all major events with large overlay requirements, there are significant challenges in delivering these within what are always challenging timescales (due to the other events major stadia usually have to provide for). The ongoing COVID driven constraints at the time were a further challenge that had to be overcome through the supply chain, and including requirements for social distancing in facilities and reduced stadium capacity.

In addition to the inputs for the SFA, Core Associates also provided overlay and site management support to Glasgow City Council for the Fanzone on Glasgow Green. Despite a level of detailed public scrutiny, this event was successfully delivered across the duration of the Championships.
