Portsmouth Install New Screen In Maritime Sport Deal

Fri 1st Nov 2013 | IT & Technology

Portsmouth Football Club have struck a deal with Maritime Sport, to supply a new OneCom Big Screen at Fratton Park until the end of the season.  

The deal has seen the old screen pulled down and a new, state-of-the-art version erected in its place.

Portsmouth’s Engagement Manager, Micah Hall said: “The screen is vital as part of our matchday experience and for the sponsorship and advertising revenue it drives.

“We have struggled on with the old screen but have come to the conclusion that a new supplier was required and a new screen to enable us to achieve the sort of interactive experience we want for fans.”

Portsmouth intend to begin running video content from 1.30pm on matchdays showing highlights and interviews from recent games and video trips down memory lane. 

Hall added: “We are also gearing up for the installation of concourse TVs in the next few weeks which will create vital revenue for the club and require no investment or maintenance cost. It’s vital to improve the fan experience as quickly as possible to ensure that the new family audience we are attracting are entertained from start to finish.”

“The revenue from sales of food, drinks and merchandise are vital to the club and we want to make it easier for fans to regard Fratton Park as a destination where they can spend their entire match day.”

Anna Mitchell from Maritime Sport said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Portsmouth FC to supply a brand new high spec LED screen, which will help enhance the match day experience for the fans.

“Portsmouth FC is a great club with an ambitious and proactive management team, we are looking forward to establishing a long-term partnership with the club to help take it forward digitally.”

Aaron Brown, Chief Operating Officer of OneCom, said: "We're delighted to be supporting Pompey's digital media matchday experience.

“It's great to be able to offer our fellow supporters the opportunity to interact via the big screen using #pompeyonecom, enabling everyone to get more involved and boosting community spirit within the club."
