Redefining the Spectator Experience: Kraft Group, Its Subsidiaries, and Extreme Networks Ignite a New Wave of Fan Engagement
In the ever-evolving world of sports and technology, the fan experience has become a paramount concern for stadium operators. The advent of Wi-Fi technology has revolutionized this experience, transforming the way fans interact with the game and the venue. No longer are fans merely passive spectators; they are now active participants, connected to a digital network that enhances their engagement with the sport.
This digital transformation has been led by forward-thinking organizations like the Kraft Group, who have recognized the potential of technology to create a more immersive, interactive, and satisfying fan experience. At the heart of this transformation is Gillette Stadium, a venue that has become a beacon of technological innovation in the sports world.
The implementation of Wi-Fi technology at Gillette Stadium has not only improved the fan experience but also set a new standard for other sports venues to follow. Two key figures who have been instrumental in this transformation are Michael Israel, the CIO for Kraft Group, and Fred Kirsch, the Publisher & Vice President for Kraft Sports Group.
