Restrata, a company which provides covid-safe technology and emergency response management, recently partnered with the Abu Dhabi T10 cricket competition.
The UK-based company provided biosecure hospitality locations in hotels, stadia and transport. Included in this were social distancing measures, instant contact tracing and restricted access to the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
Data was gathered and shared in real time, helping ensure effective communication between players and staff and providing a common operating picture for all management and staff which, in turn, helped minimise the risk of Covid-19 at the tournament.
The T10 ran from 28 January to 6 February 2021.
Matt Boucher, CEO, Abu Dhabi Cricket, said: “Ever since the global pandemic first struck, Restrata has built up a strong track record of stepping in for the greater good of sport by providing a technology platform that puts player and tournament stakeholder safety first.
“It was great working with Restrata on the 2020 Abu Dhabi T10 and the bilateral series involving UAE, Ireland and Afghanistan held here at Zayed Cricket Stadium. Restrata helped us manage our quarantine program, zoning at the stadium, capacity limits, isolation restrictions and procedures, which allowed the series to run smoothly by allowing the players and support staff to concentrate on the cricket.”
Botan Osman, CEO of Restrata, said: “I am delighted that Restrata provided a safe, biosecure bubble environment for players, officials and staff at this year’s Abu Dhabi T10 – the only ICC-sanctioned 10-over competition in the world – and I commend the leadership of Abu Dhabi Cricket for adapting to the risk and integrating this system efficiently to allow the competition to go ahead and put safety first.”
