Morningside Leicester Arena
PDC Champions League of Darts
19th & 20th October 2019
Paddy Power Champions League of Darts at Leicester Arena
The Morningside Leicester Arena recently hosted it’s biggest event yet, with the Paddy Power Champions League of Darts on the 19th and 20th October 2019 coming to Leicester. The two day tournament saw the world’s top eight players (Michael van Gerwen, Michael Smith, Gary Anderson James Wade, Rob Cross, Daryl Gurney, Peter Wright, Gerwyn Price) compete for the belt. The thrilling contest came to a climax on Sunday evening as Micheal van Gerwen beat Peter Wright 11-10 in the final.
The planning for this event began way back at the start of the summer, from early meetings with the organisers we had a clear understanding of the scale of the event and what was required. Our event team put together a comprehensive floor plan for the interior and exterior of the arena which highlighted precisely where everything was to go.
The three day installation for this event started on the Wednesday afternoon, where we added final touches for the VIP area with black serge wall draping erected around the room. We returned on Thursday and Friday to start to laying out the tables and chairs inside the arena, whilst outside the arena our team set out the security fencing and crowd control barriers. Our team worked very hard throughout the weekend, ensuring the event was a huge success!
