THE AVIVA STADIUM AND SHARED ACCESS ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP TO IMPROVE THE VENUE EXPERIENCE, THROUGH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ALL IRISH MOBILE NETWORK OPERATORS AT THE NATIONAL STADIUM

24th January 2020 – The Aviva Stadium and Shared Access, an independent owner and operator of shared wireless infrastructure, have partnered to improve the experience for fans on all mobile networks inside The Aviva Stadium. This means that all 3 Mobile Network Operators will be live for the 2020 Sporting Calendar including the Six Nations.

The partnership will see significant investment in The Aviva Stadium over the next 25 years as Shared Access ensure that all Mobile Network Operators are live inside the stadium with 4G coverage. The next step is to upgrade to add 5G to ensure The Aviva Stadium remains the premier connected sporting venue in Ireland.

This investment builds upon Shared Access’ track record of investing in major venues, one of the most recent being the state-of-the-art new Tottenham Hotspur.

“Shared Access have been investing in grassroots sports in Ireland for over 12 years,” states Chris Jackman, CEO of Shared Access. “Having already built hundreds of operational sites, we are currently building a pipeline of over 150 new telecom installations nationally, and with our track record of investing in major venues already established we are delighted to be working with The Aviva Stadium to ensure it has the best mobile connectivity in Ireland now and in the future.”

“Bringing the best connectivity with an upgrade path ready for 5G to Ireland is critical in propelling the city forward to ensure future investment and to enable visitors to enjoy major events at The Aviva Stadium.”

“Having the right telecommunication infrastructure partner who can ensure the best in class connectivity is key for any Stadium” states Martin Murphy CEO of The Aviva Stadium. “The Aviva represents both national and international Football and Rugby and our goal is to ensure we have a strong technical and financial solution for connectivity both now and into the future”.

Tunnels are historically tough locations to get a phone signal. Traditional masts provide coverage outdoors to locations that can be seen – tunnels by their nature are underground, compact and often have lots of twists and turns that all stop existing outdoor signals from penetrating inside.

The traffic that passes through the tunnel allows vehicles both a way in and out of Newcastle. Over 40,000 vehicles travel through the Tyne Tunnel every day – that’s over 14,000,000 vehicles a year.
