Legia Warszawa is the first Polish club to offer high-speed internet access throughout the stadium. Tested during near-sell-out against Lech, the system worked very well.
Renown Polish tech blog Spider’s Web tested the Wi-Fi system at Stadion Wojska Polskiego. Legia’s home is the first stadium across Poland to launch high-speed internet access for all spectators. So how much of a connected stadium is it?
According to data provided by Spider’s Web, the transfer realistically stands at 100 mb/s, which enables smooth browsing, uploading/downloading content. In other words: Ericsson’s system puts Stadion Wojska Polskiego along Wembley and Allianz Arena.
Worth mentioning the test was run during near-sell-out game against Lech Poznan (fans’ choreo below), which was watched by 26,821 people. That said, Polish fans are less engaged with their mobile phones, so the Wi-Fi may yet be tested if matchday experience evolves in this direction.
The Ericsson project already allows Legia fans to buy club merchandise or tickets online. In the future it will enable ordering snacks directly to one’s seat.
