The management of spectators of football match Spain-Uruguay, contracted to TicketHour Qatar, Zucchetti group company

Wednesday, the 6th of February 2013, was a great international football day, in so much as many friendly matches were played between the most powerful national football teams in the world.
Among these, the most prestigious one was definitely Spain-Uruguay, which has seen the European champions of the world prevailing over the American champions with 3 to 1.
The match was played in Qatar, at Doha Khalifa International Stadium in front of 40,000 spectators, their management being contracted to Zucchetti Group.
'For us it has been an important test- declares Domenico Uggeri, Zucchetti Vice-president, - because we have proved once more that we are ready for the management of large events, even international ones; moreover, our company has attained an outstanding visibility in front of important football 'stakeholders' that have assisted the game, such as the World Cup 2022 Supreme Committee and many representatives of the European Club Association, i.e. from the association of the main European teams'.
In particular, TicketHour Qatar, company of Zucchetti Group based in Doha, was in charge with the management of the public for the Spain-Uruguay game. 'On this occasion - Bruno Morini, CEO of Zucchetti Group, mentions - we have not only guaranteed the accurate functioning of ticketing and access control systems on the stadium, but the responsibility of the steward and the staff personnel present in the sports facility was also contracted to us, for a total of over 400 persons. All this indicates that our clients from the emirate have a great confidence in Zucchetti'.
Marco Marchetti, Zucchetti BU Safety and Automation Manager, underlines the fact that Zucchetti solutions are already adapted to manage any type of sports and recreational facility: 'The stadiums are only one of the application environments of our integrated ticketing and access control systems, because they are also used for exhibits, concerts, events, trade shows and many other.
During the past two years, for example, we have been chosen as technological partners for the access management to the ATP World Tour in Rome, the Italian Grand Prix of Formula One and to concerts of national and international artists such as Laura Pausini, Biagio Antonacci, Coldplay and U2'.
