XVIII ARABIAN GULF CUP DRAW & OPENING CEREMONIES
UAE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION
The XVIII AGC opening ceremony incorporated a massive overhead system used to fly key elements into the show, including aerial artists, props and a 12 metres diameter projection sphere.
On the ground, galloping horses and a cast of over 2,400 performers wowed the crowds. The highlight of the show was a giant portrait of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed, painted live by 600 police cadets in less than 2 minutes. HQ also produced the FIFA orchestrated, televised draw ceremony, supported by real time custom broadcast graphics.
