The newly renovated Luzhniki Stadium, with a seating capacity of 81,000 people, will soon be hosting the opening/closing ceremonies and final game of the 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP in Russia. McCauley Sound, Inc. and their Russian partners completed the installation of a new ILA412 / MLA3-2i long throw line array system ahead of schedule, for what is one of the largest soccer venues in Europe.
Because of Luzhniki Stadium’s open deign, it was important to select a solution which was both weather resistant and could provide seamless coverage and concert level sound to all seating areas.
The installation consisted of 216 McCauley Sound ILA412 / MLA3-2i long throw Line Array cabinets, McCauley’s new ruggedized, weather resistant, installation line array product.
The ILA412 / MLA3-2i was engineered to meet the strict FIFA intelligibility requirements, providing significant headroom above the crowd noise even with the largest audiences in attendance, and designed to be capable of withstanding exposure to the extreme Moscow whether conditions for years to come.
