A comprehensive security solution designed to deliver tight security and safety measures at the 2014 World Cup games in Brazil, was selected for supply by global integrated security solutions provider, RISCO Group.
Installed at the all-new 44,000 capacity Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba, RISCO Group’s powerful Command & Control solution, access control and customised ticketing and validation system, was provided for management and control via the stadium’s central control room.
Ensuring the highest levels of security for all visitors to the stadium during the World Cup games, RISCO Group’s SynopSYS Integrated Security and Building Management™ Command & Control solution, based on intuitive synoptic maps, integrated all security and building management systems and subsystems, including those from third parties, into a single interface.
Providing protection from unauthorised entry and counterfeit tickets by securing hundreds of doors and turnstiles within the stadium, RISCO Group’s axesplus® access control solution and FIFA compliant specialised ticketing validation system was also incorporated for central control from the stadium’s main Command & Control Room.
Custom designed for one of the world’s foremost sporting events, the extensive project spans multiple disciplines and has showcased RISCO Group’s capability for creating tailor-made solutions that can fulfil the most stringent of security and operational demands.
Commenting on the World Cup stadium project, Michael Isakov, Managing Director RISCO Security Management Solutions BU said: “We are honoured to have been selected to provide the Arena Pantanal’s security solutions for use at the 2014 World Cup and beyond. Our professional teams worked together with the local integrator to ensure that all integrated systems functioned together seamlessly and efficiently, to ensure a successful and safe mega event.”
Host to a number of group matches, the Arena Pantanal is one of 12 stadiums that were constructed or remodelled in Brazil for the 2014 World Cup. Built at a cost of over £300 million, following the end of the World Cup, the arena is to become the permanent home of local football sides Mixto EC and Cuiabá EC.
