FAI and stadium group sue each other over Aviva
The FAI and International Stadia Group, the specialist stadium financial advisory firm hired to market ticket sales at the Aviva stadium, have launched lawsuits against each other.
It is understood that the ISG claim relates to the fee it alleges it is owed for designing the FAI's premium seating packages.
"In August 2008, ISG was appointed by the Football Association of Ireland to develop, sell and manage a new premium seating product at the new 52,000 capacity Aviva Stadium," according to ISG. It helped develop the Vantage Club for the FAI and put together its corporate box offering.
"When the Aviva Stadium opened, ISG's contract for the sale and marketing of FAI Vantage Club premium seats was reconfigured. The management of the sales and marketing process was therefore taken in- house by the FAI, with ISG remaining involved in an advisory capacity."
ISG has worked with some of the biggest names in football including Barcelona, Wembley, Athletico Madrid, Galatasary and the O2 arena. It has also been active in Brazil, helping to prepare stadia for the World Cup, which kicked off last week.
