College sports venues offer a one-of-a-kind experience. The collective euphoria of supporting the home team, the tension of a decisive play and a hug from a stranger during the victory are just some of the emotions that fans experience at the game.
This universe of emotions within the sports venue’s physical structure creates great operational demands for those behind it. The goal is to allow fans to focus one hundred percent on living in the moment. Therefore, each part that makes it up must come together to meet and exceed the expectations of collegiate fans.
Like professional sports, colleges and universities face growing and evolving digital demands. Elevating the event experience, managing critical venue operations and gathering valuable analytics and insights from guests allows the stadium to enhance the game’s enjoyment instead of detracting from it.
This is where Extreme Networks, through its purpose-built networking solution, is key to achieving each of these strategic initiatives for college athletics and its venues. Discover some of the universities that have decided to advance the fan experience in their sports venues:
The fan experience at Oral Roberts sporting events has been transformed with stronger in-stadium connections to promote mobile payment and ticketing options while enabling fans’ phones to be a part of the experience.
The University of Florida teamed up with Extreme Networks to create a winning in-stadium experience at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, or ‘The Swamp,’ to continue to deliver a championship-caliber experience for Gator fans on game day.
On the field and the hardwood, the Bears are a national champion-caliber program bringing fans to their feet at McLane Stadium and the Ferrell Center.
There is nothing like a live event, whether it is an NFL game, a concert, or a college game. The impact of today’s technology investments transcends the immediate needs of the venue. Those Collegiate venues that decide to advance with Extreme will not only meet the ever-changing digital needs of today’s world but will also accelerate and lead the way toward better business outcomes for years to come.
