Olympiastadion Berlin Takes Fan Experience to New Heights

Published 8 Feb 2023

Olympiastadion Berlin is an iconic venue, recognized worldwide as a prestige host of international sport, beginning with its foundation in 1936 as part of the Berlin Olympic Park and continuing to the present as host to the best in European football.

While the stadium’s architecture is timeless, it’s technology is built for the future. Maintaining the stadium’s standing as a host for global events requires constant innovation to meet the evolving needs of sports and entertainment. In preparation for hosting the 2024 European Football Championship, the stadium knew they needed to upgrade their wireless network to comply with UEFA’s standards.

But rather than simply meet a standard, the iconic venue chose a first-of-its-kind network. Olympiastadion deployed the first and largest public Wi-Fi 6 deployment in a European stadium, a landmark achievement that ensured the stadium would continue to host world-class events for years to come.
