Rain Bird irrigation systems will be used in 11 regional soccer stadiums recently constructed for the the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.
The first Brazilian stadium to install a Rain Bird irrigation system was Castelão Stadium, located in the city of Fortaleza, in September of 2012. Over the next 11 months, Rain Bird signed on nine more stadiums. The 11th installation, finalized in January 2014, is currently underway at Arena da Baixada Stadium in Curitiba.
“Over the years, Rain Bird Brazil has built a reputation based upon credibility and confidence,”says Jose Giacoia Neto, Rain Bird Brazil’s general manager. “As the only international irrigation manufacturer with local subsidiaries and local employees with commercial and technical expertise, Rain Bird was able to truly differentiate itself from the competition in the Brazilian sports turf market.”
World Sports will install the irrigation systems in many of the Brazilian stadiums during the summer of 2014. Fabio Camara, general manager of World Sports, has worked on more than 100 sports turf construction and maintenance projects with Rain Bird Brazil over the past 17 years.
