Ground Protection – Take That Concert


The Challenge

In 2011 Event Trax won the contract to trackway / pedestrian walkway for the Take That concert at Croke Park, Dublin. The venue itself is the third largest stadium in Europe. The challenge was to provide and install flooring to cover an area of 14,500 sq. metres to protect the pitch and also provide easy & safe access for more than 84,000 spectators.

Our Solution

We installed 14,500 sq. metres of Supa Trac flooring as this offers the best ground protection and can be used where the ground is uneven. The installation took about 12 hours from starting at 8am and finishing at 8pm on the same day. The extraction of the Supa Trac was completed in 12 hours and the pitch was left in a pristine condition.

The Outcome

The Take That concert in Dublin was a major success and while we are not claiming that this was all down to the flooring systems supplied by Event Trax we do think that we played our part. The installation and removal was completed exactly as planned and the flooring system performed as expected to protect the pitch and spectators.
