The Chiefs are launching a free mobile app and wireless network inside Arrowhead Stadium in time for Sunday’s home opener against Dallas.
Fans inside the stadium who are connected to the Chiefs’ wireless network also will be able to access live video and other features on a free mobile app available throughApple or Google Play
The Chiefs Mobile app offers live streaming video of players entering the stadium, the locker room and every play of the game, plus instant replays from multiple camera angles and “under-the-hood” replays that officials see on the sideline. The app also includes access to the NFL Red Zone channel.
The new wireless network includes 600 Cisco high-density wireless access points.
“We are excited to introduce both our new Arrowhead Wi-Fi and Chiefs Mobile app to fans at our home opener,” Chiefs president Mark Donovan said in a statement. “This multi-year process represents a substantial investment that will deliver a fully integrated mobile experience to fans inside of Arrowhead Stadium. This completely redefines the way that Chiefs fans are united with the team and each other.”
The Chiefs are asking fans to send feedback on the wireless system and the app firstname.lastname@example.org
“With the new system, we know that over the first few weeks, there will be many things that we will be testing and tweaking to optimize performance,” Donovan said. “This adjustment phase could take multiple weeks. As we always do, we’re asking fans to interact with the system and provide feedback so that we can make accurate and timely decisions to ensure everyone has a great in-stadium mobile experience.”
