Brazil was determined to have the most modern football arenas in the world to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup. In the construction of the brand-new Corinthians Arena (São Paulo) in 2011, the use of low waste generation building materials was high up on the agenda. Etex’s plasterboards (in total 40,000 m²) met all the requirements. Today, more than 61,000 spectators can enjoy their great acoustic insulation, lasting resistance against the spread of flames and undeniable aesthetic value. Gypsum Drywall’s FGE Ceiling plasterboards have contributed to this project’s success.
