iBeacon for sports stadiums

A whole new level of match-day experiences

Deliver exclusive fan experiences during game-day, including click n’ collect shopping promotions and rich content. Capture insights into fan movements and react with live audience targeting.


Why iBeacon?

iBeacon™ uses Bluetooth® that is used for creating precision micro-location fan experiences.

Bluetooth iBeacons are installed at venues to complement the stadium wi-fi network. iBeacon for sport stadiums is used to trigger experiences for the fan right at the time of their visit, without putting strain on the network. Whereas wi-fi is typically used for large data-transfer such as video and replays.


Deliver new match-day experiences

iBeacon for sports stadiums is the gateway to linking social, digital and physical sporting experiences.

A sports team that adds iBeacon technology to the stadium and team app can engage, retain and monetise its customers. It’s a whole-new level of match-day experiences.


Create powerful campaigns

Sports teams typically have a greater number of fans than they do customers. And there lies the match-winning commercial opportunity to monetise fans.

A sports team that adds iBeacon technology to stadiums, nearby transport hubs, supporters bars and other popular fan areas can precisely target fans, right at the time of a sporting moment.


Realise the sporting-app advantage

Sports teams have the advantage that fans actually want to download and continue using the team specific app because of the team and data-rich content.

A sports team that uses iBeacon at stadium can also deliver proximity rich mobile content. This can empower sports teams to achieve a 65% click-through rate triggered by iBeacon and Geo-fencing technology.
