Cisco announced as technology partner for St. Louis CITY SC


Cisco  and St. Louis CITY SC have partnered, with Cisco acting as technology partner to the club. Cisco will leverage its solutions across networking, security, Wi-Fi and digital signage for the club’s stadium, CITYPARK.

Cisco is implementing a state-of-the-art, fully converged network across CITYPARK’s 31-acre stadium district that also includes the club’s stadium, training centre, team headquarters and two-story team store. CITYPARK will leverage Wi-Fi 6, Cisco’s next generation wireless standard, to deliver faster, more reliable speeds for immersive experiences, also with 4X more bandwidth than previous iterations. CITYPARK is one of only a handful of MLS-specific stadiums to deploy Cisco’s Wi-Fi 6 technology, including SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles and State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

“As a next-generation venue with frictionless markets and mobile-first technologies at the forefront of CITYPARK’s engagement, an innovative fan experience is reliant on a robust and secure connectivity,” said Matt Sebek, St. Louis CITY SC’s chief experience officer. “Every piece of data flows through Cisco’s converged technology, allowing us to streamline IT operations and provide heightened experiences through elevated video distribution, point-of-sale devices, digital signage, real-time app engagement and so much more.”

Cisco will also deploy its cybersecurity solutions throughout the CITYPARK district, providing the visibility and resiliency needed to ensure that the club and its fans are always connected and protected. Additionally, Cisco’s IPTV technology, a dynamic, end-to-end signage solution that combines high-definition video delivery with state-of-the art digital signage, will be implemented at CITYPARK. The 4K deployment will power screens across the stadium district, all entirely customizable and centrally managed via one point of control.

“CITYPARK is designed to be a one-of-a-kind sporting campus, with a world-class infrastructure that will allow it to serve as a platform for innovation for years to come,” said Ken Martin, managing director, global sales, Cisco. “By partnering with Cisco, CITY SC is making a clear commitment to providing its fans, visitors, coaches and players an unparalleled and seamless experience across the entire district.
