A mesmerising showcase for football fans to remember

The Department set Wembley Stadium ablaze when producing a one-of-a-kind, live Ceremony to open the 2016 Emirates FA Cup final.

90,000 attendees cheered as artists Tinie Tempah and Ella Eyre performed hit songs to the crowd, accompanied by adrenaline-pumping pyrotechnic effects that roared across the pitch.

As the Ceremony came to an end, our multifaceted stage design dismantled live to make way for the world’s largest crest reveal, a multi layered, complete pitch covering, a technically masterful feat. As the crests emblazoned the pitch, the stadium erupted with pride for their teams, setting the stage for the epic game.
