Celtic Park has embarked on a technology upgrade to provide wi-fi and a club fan app to its supporters.
Peter Lawell, CEO, Celtic Football Club said:
Wi-fi enabled football stadia have been talked about before, but no-one has yet done it on a scale and with the capacity to truly unlock what we see as tremendous potential. We are committed to delivering matchday experiences of the highest standard for our supporters and commercial partners and that requires us to be at the forefront of developing technology. We are delighted to be bringing true high density wi-fi to our entire ground. Our partnership with Sports Revolution and Cisco means we will be developing our services with the best in the business and that the match day experience at Celtic Park will be second to none.
Cisco’s installation covers the corporate facilities, concourses and stadium bowl seats, providing an opportunity to offer fans fully-enabled social media and rich mobile applications.
Sports Revolution is working with Celtic to develop an exclusive app called CelticLive that fans will be able to download to their smartphones from early in the 2013/14 season. The app, built on Sports Revolution’s StadiumLive platform, will give users the ability to view and interact with a wide range of relevant and engaging club content, specifically designed to enhance match day at Celtic Park.
