Celtic FC becomes latest UK club to install stadium Wi-Fi
Celtic Football Club will install Wi-Fi at its 60,832 capacity Celtic Park stadium, the club has announced.
Celtic Park: The stadium seats over 60,000 people
The club is also working with digital marketing agency Sports Revolution to create a bespoke 'CelticLive' app, which will offer a range of features and ways for fans to interact with club content and through social media. The app is expected to be available for download early in the coming 2013/14 football season.
CEO at Celtic Football Club, Peter Lawwell, 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 match day experiences of the highest standard for our supporters and commercial partners and that requires us to be at the forefront of developing technology."
Vange Kourentis, commercial director at Sports Revolution, added: "After two years of extensive research and development, we are confident that the technology will significantly enhance Celtic fans’ match day experience and unlock commercial value for the club, its sponsors and rights holders."
The Wi-Fi coverage will stretch across the entire stadium, including corporate facilities and concourses.
Earlier in the year, Liverpool FC and Manchester City FC announced Wi-Fi rollouts across the Anfield and Etihad stadiums.
