No WiFi anytime soon at the London Stadium

wifiStadium operators have yet to find a technical partner to provide free supporter WiFi in the London Stadium next season admitting no contract has been awarded to date.  Originally, an Indian company called Mahindra was supposed to provide free Wifi as part of their naming rights deal but that deal collapsed last year. Likewise, Vodafone planned to showcase their mobile technology including WiFi as part of another planned naming rights deal for the former Olympic Stadium before they also pulled out earlier this year. London Stadium 185 say “We still have ambition to deliver supporter WiFi”

Meanwhile, Stadium owners E20 Stadium LLP continue to look for a new naming partner to help plug their funding gap for the running costs of the stadium. A Daily Mail story published a few days that they that had stopped their quest while the World Athletic Championships was on has been flatly denied while the Daily Mail also claim they have an agreement not to seek naming rights sponsors from betting companies.

  1. They are starting to sound like Jeremy Corbyn, he promised free tuition fees and to write off student debt now that is just an ambition, West Ham were promised a 60000 capacity and free wifi among other things looks like the e20 or LLDC or whomever are breaking their promises, Sean with regards to the 60,000 capacity is that in the contract we signed do you know ? I.E. is it something the club can try to push through contractually if the stadium operators try to hold the club to ransom ?

  2. The sooner Athletics leave for another venue the better . You can’t mix Football with Athletics ffs . What’s wrong with Wembley or Twickenham anyway ? . White City should have been rebuilt for Athletics years ago .

    • Twickenham and Wembley don’t have running tracks, they could just rebuild Crystal Palace.
