Tottenham Hotspur Partners With Hewlett Packard Enterprise

Tue 11th Jul 2017 | IT & Technology

Tottenham Hotspur today announced it has selected Hewlett Packard Enterprise as its official IT Networking and Wireless Infrastructure Partner.

The club is currently building a new stadium on the site of its former home White Hart Lane in London.

Set to open in 2018, it will be one of the most technologically advanced stadia ever built, delivering an enhanced event day experience for all visitors.

The new state-of-the-art venue will be the largest football club stadium in London, with a capacity of 61,559 and will also host other major sport and entertainment events such as NFL games and concerts.

Since planning for the new stadium began, the club has been committed to driving innovation and using modern technology to enhance the in-venue experience for every visitor.

As a result, the stadium’s IT infrastructure is being incorporated from the ground up, enabling connectivity across the entire venue for visitors and flexibility to cater to future demands.

The club is installing Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, networking solutions, with support from HPE’s Pointnext services organisation, to meet its current and future technology demands.

Sanjeev Katwa, Head of Technology, Tottenham Hotspur, said: “Creating a technology infrastructure to support an enhanced visitor experience requires solutions that can meet the growing demands of visitors that come to our new stadium.

“We believe Hewlett Packard Enterprise can support us on the journey in building one of the most technologically advanced stadiums in the world.”

Marc Waters, MD, U.K. and Ireland, HPE said: “Tottenham Hotspur realise that being digital from the ground up is imperative to transform its fan experience.

“We are thrilled to support Tottenham Hotspur in this journey, using our intelligent edge solutions and Pointnext expertise to help build the foundation for a truly digital stadium.

“Our partnership with the club will help enable future innovation and the ability to provide an enriched, unique environment for stadium visitors.”
