Telstra Connected Lounge
The Telstra Connected Lounge is the latest highlight of the digital revolution in full swing at ANZ Stadium.
In a world of tech-savvy sports fans, there’s now so much more to game day than simply watching the action on the field. Fans want to instantly share experiences, tweet their opinions, and be the first to receive updates about their teams.
Thanks to ANZ Stadium’s free Wi-Fi, free App and new Telstra Connected Stadium Lounge, the event experience has already gone to a new level in 2014.
And there’s much more to come. The Telstra Connected Stadium Lounge is an interactive technology centre where fans are able to immerse themselves in the latest technology and innovative features;
- A wall of interactive televisions with Gesture Recognition Software that showcases customised video content and live stats;
- Unique content is generated from the Lounge from our media partners, including Triple M, who will call NRL games live for fans at the Stadium;
- Channel 9 will produce halftime content from the Lounge which will (at selected games) be displayed on the big screens in the Stadium;
- Social content created specifically for the fans at the Stadium will be generated direct from inside the Lounge.
Connected Stadium features are already delivering a Next Generation interactive experience for fans at ANZ Stadium.
These features include free Wi-Fi to all fans in and around the venue, a Stadium APP that provides traffic and transport advice on your way to the game and directs you to your seat once you arrive, unique digital content exclusive to fans at the ground, and fans’ tweets live on the big screens throughout Sydney Olympic Park.
“As the first Stadium in Australasia to offer all fans free Wi-Fi, we’ve already set the standard in using technology to improve the fan experience,” says Greg Sleigh, General Manager of Event & Business Development.
“The Telstra Connected Lounge is the first of its kind in Australia where our customers, NRL fans and partners will get a chance to be part of a new type of live game experience” said Adam Good, Telstra Director Digital Media and Content.
“The Lounge is the blueprint of how we’ll continue to deliver on our Connected Stadium strategy and we’re excited to be unveiling it at ANZ Stadium.”
