CAA ICON was hired by the FIGC to complete the stadium-specific chapter of Italy’s bid dossier for the UEFA EURO 2016 cup, which included the evaluation and recommendation of 12 potential stadiums in 12 cities to host the games. In three short months, CAA ICON team members traveled across the country and evaluated numerous stadiums before recommending the final 12. The team also worked with individual municipalities and their architects to devise architectural and operational solutions in order to achieve UEFA compliance.
Developing the Plan
Some of the renovations included new roofs, removal (or minimization) of track and field courses, setting up of welcoming spaces and VIP infrastructure with skyboxes, reconfiguration of the stands to guarantee better visibility, and improvement of restrooms and food and beverage centers. Further, the team compiled and designed close to 500 pages of the stadium chapter for final production.
