Stadium Remodelling for Hosting Volleyball World Cup

Volleyball World Cup is not all about the game. The fans, team managers, coaches, referees, and holidaymakers all play a significant part in ensuring the game is worth the time.

Before the FIVB, the governing body that plans the volleyball world cup chooses a stadium as a venue for the favorite sport; several factors are put into consideration.

Countries go and extra mile to develop and renovate their stadiums to meet the international standards.

Being a host country comes with many benefits

  • Improves the standards of living through increased revenue
  • Puts the country in the public limelight
  • Promotes economic development and growth, thanks to foreign exchange
  • Leads to the growth of different sectors of the economy
  • Short term job availability

What are the international standards for a Volleyball world cup stadium?

The stadiums need to meet the following requirement to be considered to host such a competitive game.

  • Must have a capacity of at least 5000 persons
  • Should be accessible by road, air, and rail
  • Must be centrally placed for easy navigation
  • Must have state of the art volleyball arena
  • Must have additional facilities like sanitation, gyms and extra rooms for changing

Once you understand the requirements, it’s upon you as a country to position yourself to become the next host target.

This doesn’t come on a silver plate. You have to position yourself through the provision of available services to prove your hosting capability.

As you do that, your renovation is inevitable.

You need to work with your fabricator, woodworker, electricians, and engineers to develop a workable plan on what is ideal to meet the required standards.

Fabrication involves all the metalwork in the stadium. A sleek preview of any stadium, you can’t fail to notice creative metalwork designs to suit the needs of the users. Besides, metal is durable and easy to work with, if and only if you have the right welders who understand the functioning and performance of different metals.

The welding tools are categorized according to their functions.

  1. Cutting

Renovation means there is a change in some parts of the stadium, which you feel need a touch of dynamism to meet the standards. You must cut pieces to add or remove for that perfect design. Therefore plasma cutters have a unique role in the operation. Metalwork is not all about the skills; the tools of trade also comes in handy. For example, looking at plasma cutters, the market has varieties.

With expertise and experience, a welder comes up with a metal roof change with a touch of class and fashion to please the committee. That alone is enough to change a decision on the host venue. Remember, it’s all about competition. Plasma cutters are not the only cutting tools, we’ve put more emphasis on it due to its advanced technology, but still, you can consider others like band saws and grinders.


  1. Blending/ Grinding

Some stadiums have stayed for decades without renovation, but they meet the standard requirements. A few fabrication operations come in handy for that perfect and beautiful look. In that case, you only need a grinder to smoothen some tough metal parts like staircases or remove excel welds, burrs, and spatters. Although grinding is known to weaken some metal parts, it needs to be done with care. You opt for this process in metals that have a higher gauge.

3.   Bending

    1. The smooth and neat curve you see in circular metallic rooftops is the work of a welder who understands the bending of metals. A metal binder or a brake is a must-have welding tool. Apart from turning, it also helps to remove cracks and crevices. A break in any metal is a point of weakness which when not factored in it’s a disaster in waiting. Talk to the welder in charge of the renovation process to make the state of the art seats complete with curved armchairs to enhance comfort. That alone is enough to give you a comparative advantage over your competitors.

      1. Assembling

      For that complete changeover, you may wish to dismantle some parts to change the metal. Or, you can also design to have an overhaul of the sitting arrangement that means that you have to remove everything and start anew. In the assembling process, you can still use some of the old metals- if they are in good condition to save on cost and money. The bulk of any renovation process is the assemblage stage. It’s the ultimate goal of the operation. At the end of it, you now gauge whether you have what you wanted or not. It’s a skill that requires a lot of innovation and creativity. What type is suitable for the job? Is it manual or spot assembly or weld assembly?

      It all depends on the project at hand. It’s the deciding factor on the assemblage technology. Target your renovation project for decades to come. You may not host the volleyball world cup now. After the renovation, you may be the target stadium.
