Yesterday, the New England Patriots announced that it would be providing its fans with a next-generation fan experience. With the the support of Boston-based Enterasys Networks, Gillette Stadium will become the 8th NFL stadium to offer Wi-Fi services during Patriots’ games and other events.
According to the Patriots, the upgrades in sports technology will be available for the team’s home-opener on Sept. 16 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Other stadiums around the league that offer high-speed wireless connectivity include Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis), Sun Life Stadium (Miami) and the Georgia Dome (Atlanta).
“In-stadium, high-density Wi-Fi providing any guest with a rich internet experience is the next frontier for the NFL and it is something we have been researching for years,” said Jonathan Kraft, president of The Kraft Group and the Patriots and co-chair of the NFL Digital Media Committee, on Patriots.com. “We believe that well-constructed mobile applications – accessible through the Enterasys Wi-Fi network – will ultimately deliver content available nowhere else.”
