HPE Aruba Networking To Help Connect New Everton Stadium

Everton Football Club has signed a multi-year agreement that will see HPE Aruba Networking, a leading provider for enterprise network infrastructure, become an Official Supplier of Everton Stadium, providing a secure and intelligent networking infrastructure solution.



The system, currently being installed at the club’s new waterfront home, will include switches, access points, Wi-Fi and wired network management and security software, as well as network design, management and monitoring services.


The deal means the global edge-to-cloud company will provide a comprehensive networking infrastructure across the footprint of the Blues’ new 52,888-capacity home.


HPE Aruba Networking’s solutions will enable Everton to develop its connected stadium strategy and use state-of-the-art digital technologies to create an engaging fan experience for all visitors once the venue opens at the start of the 2025/26 season, inviting supporters to stay longer and enjoy the impressive facilities that the new stadium has to offer.


A leader in security-first, AI-powered networking, HPE Aruba Networking has a long history in providing key infrastructure for sports and event venues across the world.


Building on this experience, HPE Aruba Networking will deliver a comprehensive solution, enabling Everton to offer high connectivity everywhere across the stadium, new fan services and real-time offers, and increased speed of service at all digital interaction points.


Richard Kenyon, Chief Commercial and Communications Officer at Everton, said: “Working with HPE Aruba Networking will give Everton Stadium a best-in-class Wi-Fi network infrastructure and we are delighted to have them as an Official Supplier.


“Their expertise in networking some of the biggest venues in the UK, Europe and North America will be important as we develop the digital infrastructure and potential of Everton Stadium. 


“A big positive of the move to our new home will be connectivity for supporters and the opportunities that will provide us to engage our partners in delivering the latest in digital experiences and services, both on matchdays and during other events held at the venue.”


Mark Weeks, director of UK & Ireland, HPE Aruba Networking, said: “We are proud to be joining the project to deliver a world-class venue and a world-class home for Everton.


“At HPE Aruba Networking, we know that technology is a key element to every fan experience, from the point when they enter the stadium, at times when they want to share their excitement with loved ones outside of the stadium, at half-time, when leveraging local services like restaurants and bars, and even after the match has ended.”
