The UEFA Champions League final
The Final of the most prestigious football tournament for club teams in the world, the UEFA Champions League was held at the Allianz Arena in Munich the 19th of May. Bayern München versus Chelsea Football Club was one of the most evenly matched finals in history. For fans not fortunate enough to have tickets to the stadium Mediatec screens provided a unique opportunity to watch the match in the atmosphere of a public arena.
Mediatec provided giant screens to the Olympia Stadium in Munich for the public to watch the match. Two of our newest products were used: a 75sqm large mobile LED screen and a 132sqm modular LED screen built with a 10mm pixel pitch Lighthouse Bi-10, both of which delivered stunning pictures to an audience of over 65 000.
The event was so popular the Olympic park venue sold out after only two days and consequently the event organisers chose to use the Theresienwiese as a second public viewing arena. This is the main square for the world renowned Octoberfest and on the night was occupied by over 35 000 spectators. For this event Mediatec supplied our largest trailer, our flagship, the 88sqm mobile LED screen. One of the world largest LED screens mounted in a trailer.
Unfortunately for the Bayern München fans their team were narrowly defeated by Chelsea after a penalty shoot-out.
