NEW DELHI: Ruckus Wireless has deployed Wi-Fi network at the American Express Community Stadium (The AMEX), which will provide spectators access to free Wi-Fi throughout the entire stadium.


The new Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi network is being operated and managed for them by The Cloud and is comprised of about 100 Ruckus ZoneFlex indoor and outdoor access points, a release said.

Located in Falmer, Brighton, East Sussex, England (UK), The AMEX is one of the most modern stadiums in the UK that seats about 35,000 people.

It has become one of the most popular meeting and events venues on the South Coast, regularly catering to conferences and some 23+ home soccer games a season. The AMEX will also host games during the upcoming 2015 Rugby World Cup.

“Our fans want to get online–everything from catching up on scores to uploading videos from the stands. The ability to get online has become a big part of match day,” said Paul Barber, CEO at Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club.

“For us, mobile is a great way of bringing the fans closer to the action and there’s an opportunity to expand on that in the future with competitions, games or other interactive tools. Having fast, free Internet across the ground is key to engaging with fans,” Barber added.
