At this Sunday's Sky Super Rugby Aotearoa game between the Hurricanes and the Crusaders, fans can get even closer to the game. As part of a trial, Sky Stadium guests can listen to the live Sky Sport Commentary on their phones in real time and at no cost from their seat using the Sky Stadium mobile app and Free Sky Stadium WiFi.*
Sky and Sky Stadium are really excited to be able to offer this fantastic solution to rugby fans for the remainder of Sky Super Rugby Aotearoa and (fingers-crossed) All Blacks test matches at Sky Stadium.
Shane Harmon, Sky Stadium Chief Executive says “From the outset we saw our partnership with Sky as an opportunity to use technology to improve the fan experience and to bring some of the living room experience to the Stadium”.
Steve Bayliss, Sky Chief Creative Officer says, “If there’s one thing we’re determined to do it’s to help fans get closer. This project means they have access to all the real-time insights and analysis they need from our expert Sky Sport commentary team.
“The opportunity to bring the Sky Sport audio experience to fans in the crowd is something we’ve worked really hard to provide and we hope the fans love it. We’re stoked to be able to do this for Sky Super Rugby Aotearoa and more, at Sky Stadium.”
