Australian creative services company KOJO has announced it has been named Optus Stadium’s sports presentation and game day production partner.
The appointment sees KOJO as the exclusive long-term partner for two of Australia’s newest, world-class sporting venues, Adelaide Oval and Optus Stadium.
KOJO’s Perth team will create and deliver unique game day experiences in a state-of-the-art broadcast and production suite for Optus Stadium.
Fusing lighting, music, video, talent and live activations, KOJO’s creative, technical and production teams will create emotive moments for fans using the stadium’s technology and design capabilities.
Since the appointment, the team at KOJO has worked closely with VenuesLive – the operator of Optus Stadium – to complete the design and installation of the powerful technical production suite, allowing the seamless integration of sound, vision and lighting to build the ultimate fan experience.
Optus Stadium CEO Mike McKenna said: “We searched for partners that could deliver world-class sport and entertainment events, cementing Optus Stadium as a premium venue.
“KOJO’s demonstrated stadia experience, technical and creative capabilities, and ‘fans first’ mindset secured their appointment.
“Fans will be treated to a world-class experience featuring revolutionary technology that puts the audience in the hot seat. KOJO has built a reputation for pioneering amazing event day atmospheres, and we look forward to wowing our audiences.”
KOJO’s local knowledge was an important part of the successful tender response, with the company having partnered with the West Coast Eagles and the Perth Scorchers over the last three years and established a permanent Perth office in April last year.
Stephen Lord, executive director of brand and sport at KOJO, said: “We are thrilled to be selected to help build one of the world’s greatest sporting experiences, putting Perth and Australia on the international map.
“Our core team in Western Australia has been chosen to ensure delivery is of the highest standard. We have the best technical and broadcast production suite in the stadium backed by a world-class creative, technical and production team.
“We continuously refine how to deepen the fan experience. Our vision is to engage with fans throughout their entire journey, building anticipation and excitement along the way.
“From the moment they step into the stadium park, fans will feel the venue’s vibrancy and atmosphere, and we believe the stadium will very quickly become a central part of Perth’s sports and entertainment culture.”
