Every year we look forward to a jam-packed Events season, and 2022 has proven our biggest yet. Kicking off in April the highly-anticipated Fury vs Whyte clash in front of 94,000 spectators at Wembley. The Frank Warren show was one for the history books for MAN Commercial, as we recorded our biggest ringside deployment ever with 225 event specialists on duty.
May and June saw our teams supporting at Ride London, the world’s greatest festival of cycling, as well as various high-profile music events including Capital’s Summertime Ball, Simply Red live in Westminster and several festivals. A real highlight was the Queen’s jubilee in June; a team of over 160 MAN Commercial officers were in London for a week to support as a range of events and celebrations bought crowds of hundreds of thousands into the capital.
July was big for sporting events, we had teams at boxing shows, The British Open golf in Scotland and 10 days at Edgbaston in Birmingham for the cricket. Soon after, it was time to get involved with the biggest sporting event ever to come to Birmingham, the 2022 Commonwealth games, which took us through to early August.
In September, we were called into action when the sad news of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was announced. I was a great privilege for our team to support the SES Group over 11 days on this very special assignment and be part of history.
As we enter October, our events calendar is still looking busy, with boxing shows, the London Marathon and NFL at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
