Stadium Management SA Chief Executive Officer, Jacques Grobbelaar, was in London, United Kingdom, this past weekend to collect the 2016 Business Initiative Directive (BID) Corporate International Award for Excellence.

The awards gala function was staged at the five-star Gouman Tower Hotel on 19 and 20 November as Stadium Management SA (SMSA) became the third ever South African company to be honoured with this achievement.

“This award is not for me, but for the rest of the SMSA team back in South Africa. It’s such a great privilege to have this international award bestowed on us,” Grobbelaar said from London after collecting the global accolade in the gold category.

“We have received words of well wishes from different stakeholders, patrons and clients back at home. We appreciate the great support since announcing being honoured with this prestigious reward.”

SMSA manages the FNB, Orlando, Rand and Dobsonville Stadiums in the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan. The City itself was recently named the most visited cities on the African continent from a study by Mastercard Global Destinations Cities Index.

SMSA has a number of events lined up this Summer, that include international award-winning artist, DJ Black Coffee Block Party, at FNB Stadium on Saturday, 3 December, with tickets already out on sale.
