Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium is Fully Connected
Sport Venues & Campus
Always aiming to provide the best experience to their passionate “Cityzens”, Manchester City has joined forces with Cellnex in order to provide world class mobile coverage to their 55.000 spectators at the emblematic Etihad Stadium. Cellnex is the ideal partner for this ambitious project due to our multi-operator, end to end solutions. We act as the single point of contact in midst of many players and stakeholders, including all major MNOs, regulatory bodies and Manchester City’s own organisation.
We provide full mobile coverage for the entirety of Manchester City’s facilities while guaranteeing optimal capacity and coverage inside the stadium. Such a solution allows Manchester City to be at the forefront of the best stadium experience for their fans while boasting technological readiness for ever growing data demand of these upcoming years.
In order for fans and visitors to take full advantage of all Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium has to offer, they require connectivity in all parts of the stadium, from the moment they begin their journey to the moment they are leaving the premises. Fans expect to stay connected to their friends & family at all times.
In the Etihad Stadium, we have deployed a MIMO solution with 188 antennas, divided in 36 sectors all throughout the established premises for maximising mobile coverage so fans can share their favourite moments without missing a thing and operational staff can ensure everything is running as smoothly as possible.
