eps australia supports the “Battle of Brisbane”

With infrastructure and services at the World WBO Welterweight Boxing Title

Southport – eps australia is proud to announce their involvement in the exciting “Battle of Brisbane”, which took place on Sunday July 2nd at Brisbane´s Suncorp Stadium. Behind the scenes eps australia was the official Supplier for the WBO World Welterweight bout with temporary infrastructure and associated services.

eps australia supplied all Computer Aid Design (CAD) work for the show, giving organisers a detailed overview of the venue and layout, as well as the placement of almost 9,000 floor seats. To protect the sensitive surfaces at Suncorp Stadium and provide a firm foundation for the bout, eps australia supplied approximately 8,000 sq/m of the flexible turf protection system Logis Event Grip® and 800 sq/m of our heavy-duty Arena Panels temporary roadway system.

Adding to the complexity of the Event delivery, Brisbane’s local NRL team the Brisbane Broncos played a home game on the field on the Friday night before the bout. This gave both eps and production only 44 hours between having access at the field and gates opening. It was a monumental effort by all involved.

Over 55,000 fans poured into the Stadium to watch the bout, joining the millions watching from around the world to witness one of the biggest sporting contests of 2017, between Phillipino 11 time World Champion Manny Pacquio and Brisbane’s own Jeff Horn who has a 16-0 welterweight record. In the End Jeff Horn defeated Manny Pacquiao in the battle to claim a unanimous 12-round decision and win the WBO world welterweight title. Here’s hoping for a rematch now so we can do it all again soon.
