Tottenham Hotspur Football Club Teams Up With HP Enterprise on New Stadium Using IoT Technology

English football club Tottenham Hotspur has announced that it has selected Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) as its official IT networking and wireless infrastructure partner. As part of the agreement, HPE will work with the club to incorporate mobility and Internet of Things solutions into its new stadium being built in London, which is slated to open next year.

The new venue will be the largest football club stadium in London, the company reports, with a capacity of nearly 62,000 attendees. It will host other major sport and entertainment events as well, such as NFL games and concerts. The stadium's IT infrastructure is being incorporated from the ground up, enabling connectivity across the entire venue for visitors, as well as flexibility to meet future demands. The club is installing HPE's intelligent edge solutions in networking, with support from HPE's Pointnext services organization, to meet its current and future technology demands.

"Creating a technology infrastructure to support an enhanced visitor experience requires solutions that can meet the growing demands of visitors that come to our new stadium," said Sanjeev Katwa, Tottenham Hotspur's head of technology, in a prepared statement. "We believe Hewlett Packard Enterprise can support us on the journey in building one of the most technologically advanced stadiums in the world."

Marc Waters, HPE's managing director for the United Kingdom and Ireland, added in the statement: "Tottenham Hotspur realize that being digital from the ground up is imperative to transform its fan experience. We are thrilled to support Tottenham Hotspur in this journey, using our intelligent edge solutions and Pointnext expertise to help build the foundation for a truly digital stadium. Our partnership with the Club will help enable future innovation and the ability to provide an enriched, unique environment for stadium visitors."
