The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Elevate the Game-Day Experience with Fan-Facing Wi-Fi

Today’s fans expect more than a quality, entertaining product on the field; they also expect a quality experience surrounding the game itself. With mobile and digital platforms playing a stronger role in how teams appease and interact with their fan bases, certain technologies have become a staple of every game day experience.

Strong, secure Wi-Fi for fan use is now one of these staples. In addition to keeping fans connected and supporting their day-to-day mobile behaviors, Wi-Fi allows teams to better enable their strategic digital initiatives.

The NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers recognized the importance of offering Wi-Fi to their fans in-stadium.

As such, the Buccaneers teamed up with Extreme Networks to design and deploy a custom Wi-Fi solution for Raymond James Stadium, the team’s home field in Tampa Bay, Florida. The system not only offers public-facing Wi-Fi for Buccaneers’ home games and in-stadium events, but it would also support vital operational assets and digital marketing initiatives. Already considered the #1 Stadium in the NFL for in-venue technology, the Buccaneers now have a powerful business asset to meet the demands of their fan base and their organization.
