Introduction

I will organize a FIFA World Cup Party in stadium “ Veltinsarena” in Gelsenkirchen, Germany on 11th July 2010, the day FIFA world cup ends in south Africa.

The theme of the party will be Peace and Harmony. This theme is selected keeping in mind the violence which is taking place all over the world among different communities and countries. This theme will be given shape by having a band of international appeal, international food, multiple colors, guests from all over the world, using multiple flags in the stadium and number of other things as well.

Justification

FIFA world cup is being held in South Africa this time and there are a lot of people all around the world who want to watch the football world cup and celebrate but are not able to get Tickets or Visa to South Africa to watch the event.

Hence FIFA World Cup party will be organized on 11th July 2010 with a view to get participation from all over the world and football loving countries like Arab countries, Eastern Europe countries, Asian and African Countries. This will be multicultural even where citizens of different countries can watch the finals live, support their teams and at the end of the match celebrate in a big manner. This will be like a potpourri where different culture and come and merge which their love for football acting like a catalyst.

Stadium “ Veltinsarena” in Gelsenkirchen, Germany has been chosen because it is accessible from all parts of the world. At the same time this is one of the most modern football stadium of the world with a roof which can cover the stadium in case it rains. Apart from the expandable roof stadium has all the amenities one can need while relishing a football match.

Stadium also organizes hockey grand prix apart from football.

Facilities

The seating arrangement in the stadium are of the world class quality and the seating capacity is huge. Special arrangements are made in the stadium to handle huge crowd (60, 000 ) during football matches. Stadium already has good arrangements for eating in the form of 15 restaurants, café houses, grilling stations.

It also has a Beer line connected with a brewery nearby, resulting in the huge capacity of the stadium to serve beer to more than 50, 000 people at a time.

Assumptions and Constraints

Delay in getting permission from German Authorities on the venue and various other permission

Difficulty in obtaining Visa for Germany particularly citizens of Arab Countries

Security concerns due to scale of event

Marketing of the event is a big challenge due to global scale of the event

FIFA might refuse to have tie-up

Broadcaster may refuse to give rights

Constraints

Operational Constraint

It might be difficult to manage a huge crowd in the stadium. Everyone will expect a royal treatment and will have high hopes which will make it even more difficult to complete the event smoothly. Help from the local administration would be needed to manage the event successfully.

Response Time Constraint

Stating February 2010 preparation time of 6 months might be less when one looks at the various permission that have to be taken to conduct the event successfully. Visa clearances will be tough to obtain by the guests as granting of Visa is a long and slow process.

Financial Constraint

Money will be raised through Sponsors and ticket sale. Hence the budget will be a constraint because ticket price can be increased too much. Too much ticket price may result into low turnout of people which might lead to loses.

HR Constraints

Lots of people would prefer to sit back and enjoy the match rather than working on the final day of the event. Hence finding a manpower on the final day will be a challenge. At the same time this constraint could be handled by going for an advanced Human Resource plan.

Work Breakdown structure (2 levels)

Work Breakdown structure follows the 100% rule. All the work which is not given in the Work Breakdown structure is out of the scope and collectively Work Breakdown structure should form the entire work. Hence it is the most important part of the entire project management planning.
