Club Brugge has become the first soccer club in Belgium’s Jupiler Pro League to offer free Wi-Fi internet access throughout its Jan Breydel Stadium.
The club now has a new fiber network to which it has connected 400 wireless access points, cashless payment terminals and surveillance cameras. The Wi-Fi antennas have been set up to ensure optimal access throughout the stadium, including in the business seats, cloak rooms, restaurant and press room.
Carl Lenaerts, business development manager at Club Brugge, said: “Our supporters are used to having Internet access wherever they go, but it’s not easy to guarantee a strong signal for so many fans in the stadium at the same time. Thanks to our new high density network, we’re offering our fans stable Internet access so they can share their stadium experiences on social media, for example. We hope this will further strengthen our supporters’ engagement with the club.”
