CLUB NOMINATED FOR EUROPEAN AWARD
We are delighted to announce that as part of our digital revolution and enhanced fan engagement program, Cardiff City FC has been shortlisted for ‘Best Venue Project’ for the 2016 Install Awards.
The nomination comes on the back of nearly a year’s worth of digital improvements throughout Cardiff City Stadium. This has seen nine new Ricoh HD projectors from 120-179" adorn each of our stands and hospitality zones at CCS, showing live matches on game day as well as a wealth of in-house produced club content that promotes all levels of football as well as weekly Bluebirds news.
DIGITAL SIGNAGE, STATZONES & STADIUM APP
In addition, the Club now has digital signage and statzones present throughout its hospitality areas and concourses (courtesy of Sony UK and Tripleplay), whilst the establishment of a Stadium App (now with over 9,000 subscribers) and an IPTV network allows us to send out our key messages to more digital platforms than ever before, thus maximising reach, the effect of our content and value for our sponsors.
'THE BEST TECHNOLOGY AT MINIMUM COST'
Speaking of the news, Executive Director & CEO Ken Choo said: “I’m delighted to see that the Club is being recognised on a European level for its significant improvements in this field.
“The degree of digital enhancement throughout the stadium further exemplifies our commitment to supporters and the betterment of the match-day experience.
“Of additional value to us is that through working with our partners we’ve been able to source the very best technology at minimum cost. We’ve proven that it’s possible to spend modestly but provide premium quality on a match-day for our fans.”
Cardiff City FC would like to thank partners Tripleplay, Beamrite, InCrowd, Sony UK and Ricoh for making the digital expansion possible and contributing to a constantly improving match-day experience.
