Bridon manufactured and supplied the cable system (cable assemblies and all connecting hardware) to support the membrane roof for the Inchon Munhak Stadium in Korea.

The stadium seats over 52,000 people and was used as a venue for the 2002 World Cup. The main architectural feature of the stadium is the PTFE coated glass fibre membrane roof which resembles masts and sails to reflect the maritime history of the City of Inchon.
