The National Football League’s Cleveland Browns recently announced a new partnership with wireless carrier Verizon that will improve fans’ experience at Cleveland Browns Stadium.
As the “Official 5G Network of the Cleveland Browns,” Verizon will provide connectivity designed to enhance the fan experience so attendees can stay connected and share all the action on the field. As part of this partnership, Verizon and the Browns plan to launch new innovations leveraging this 5G network.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Verizon to improve the overall fan experience,” Cleveland Browns Chief Commercial Officer Eric Clouse said in a statement. “Bringing this new technology to Cleveland Browns stadium is an exciting way to elevate game day for our fans, players and coaches.”
“Partnering with the Cleveland Browns is an honor for Verizon,” said Andy Brady, Great Lakes Market President for Verizon. “Bringing together our technology solutions with the team and Cleveland Browns Stadium means Browns fans have the opportunity to utilize our expanding 5G network for the full game day experience.”
Starting this season, Verizon, the NFL’s Official Private Wireless Network for Coach-to-Coach Communications, will deploy a Managed Private Wireless Solution at Cleveland Browns Stadium as well as at 29 other U.S. NFL stadiums. This solution includes full support for coach-to-coach communications on the field and provides the NFL with speed, security and reliability for critical on-field coach-to-coach communication.
Fifth-generation wireless solutions are part of the broader Verizon Business Connected Venue approach, which is rooted in its 5G investment in more than 75 large public venues in the United States. This includes a number of iconic major sports and music venues. Verizon also brings a variety of public and private network capabilities, a robust technology ecosystem, and 5G partnerships that allow sports leagues, teams and stadium operators to create and deliver a first-class fan experience and achieve desired venue operations outcomes.
