As part of their preparations for their first season of professional football in the Vanarama National League North, Harrogate Town AFC has made huge strides to improving the fan experience by providing a free WiFi hotspot service, as well as improving the internet connectivity generally to their stadium.
Signa Technologies, working in partnership with Strata, has installed WiFi hotspots and fixed internet services using the latest fibre and wireless technologies to the CNG stadium, home of Harrogate Town Football Club.
Garry Plant, Managing Director of the CNG Stadium said “we’ve invested a lot of money over the last couple of years to improve services for fans across the board. With projects such as the new West Terrace stand, which provides toilet facilities and a snack bar service, new CCTV coverage to improve security, and now the WiFi Hotspots service, we hope will improve the experience for the fans who continue to support the club.”
Harrogate Town AFC have under gone these continued improvements to not only meet the requirements by FIFA after gaining FIFA quality pro status for their 3G pitch, but more importantly to take their fans on this exciting journey with them.
Strata, who owns the majority share in the club, have project managed the latest initiative. Ashley Hare, Network Consultant for Strata said “we were responsible for bringing the different elements of this phase of the improvements together. We also designed the network in partnership with Signa to deliver the best experience for the fans, press and the club. We are delighted with the results and look forward to working with them on future projects.”
Martyn Boswell, Managing Director of Signa Technologies stated “Signa have been brought in for their wireless expertise to work with Strata to design and install a network that will give maximum coverage for the fans. The fans and press will now be able to upload photographs or access social media etc, during their time at the stadium, and the service will improve working conditions for the CNG Stadium staff so they can use the internet more effectively.”
