The ESSMA-BASIS Smart & Sustainable Stadium Workshop was co-hosted by Arsenal FC’s Emirates Stadium on Day 1 and the Rugby Football Union (RFU’s) Twickenham Stadium on Day 2.

Day 2 of the Workshop was kicked off with an introduction by RFU’s Sustainability Manager, Dru Morton. After he welcomed the participants, members were taken on a behind-the-scenes tour of Twickenham Stadium where Morton disseminated a lot of technical data regarding the venue, its operations and sustainability credentials. 

Arsenal’s Deputy Stadium Manager, Michael Lloyd, opened the event by welcoming everyone to the venue. In his opinion, BASIS is the perfect organisation in terms of environmental impact and energy consumption needs of sport venues for likeminded stadium executives who want to work together. 

The inaugural ESSMA-BASIS Smart & Sustainable Stadium Workshop was co-hosted by Arsenal FC’s Emirates Stadium on Day 1 and the home of England Rugby, the Rugby Football Union (RFU’s) Twickenham Stadium on Day 2. 

This year’s World Stadium Congress was held 21-24 May in Doha, Qatar with a focus on the delivery requirements for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™. Together with several stakeholders, participants had the chance to discuss pre-event, on the day and post-event delivery requirements – from construction, to fan experience, to legacy and beyond.
