We had so much fun last year…and so far, they are letting us come back. We had fun doing a little promo for the trip…an excuse really…to let Jimmy Ray play dress up, let me work on my Alfred Molina impression and most of all…let Producer Steve Ewertz loose so he can shoot/edit/compose the way he likes!
Costumes, painted faces, chants, drums, dances, and the color blue EVERYWHERE – welcome to LIVESTRONG Sporting Park, where fans pack in to cheer on the Sporting Kansas City soccer team! The new LIVESTRONG Sporting Park caters to the tech-savvy, culturally diverse, family-oriented crowd. Built for fans that refuse to be spectators.
On a visit to LIVESTRONG Sporting Park, Executive ViewPoints talked to fans and ventured into the Kansas City Cauldron – a sea of blue and the liveliest and loudest seats in LIVESTRONG Sporting Park – to find out how they feel about their stadium experience.
I love the KC Cauldron! KC Cauldron is considered the most vocal supporter of Sporting Kansas City and they lived up to their promise on our visit. The singing (and drumming) never stops! So you can prepare for your own fan experience at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park, we’ve listed a few of the KC Cauldron songs:
Here We Go
Sporting, Sporting KC
Till the World Ends
We Love Ya
Mighty, Mighty Wizards
We Love You Sporting
Which one is your favorite?
(Note on how they do it: With Cisco Connected Stadium Wi-Fi and StadiumVision solutions in place, fans enjoy a state-of-art sports and remain immersed in all of the action throughout the stadium. These offerings are built on top of a Connected Stadium network, which serves as a single platform for innovation and growth.)

Nearly, twenty thousand fans in seats, all connected, all sharing the same exciting sports experience. Taking and posting pictures to Facebook throughout the game, using Smartphones to stay in touch with friends and tweeting exciting game moments. They use free mobile apps to play team trivia games and earn points at the concession stands. They look up sports stats, check traffic, and buy tickets for the next game. Never a dull moment.
Located in Kansas City and opened in 2011, LIVESTRONG Sporting Park is an innovator in every sense of the word. It is home to a sport that is a relative latecomer in the U.S. – soccer – and it features the world’s most advanced technology – to enable the fans who refuse to be simply spectators. Read More »
CleanAir continues to provide significant differentiation for Cisco Wireless as well it should. What many don’t realize, is how much of the attractive visualization and control is not from CleanAir itself, but CleanAir plus the Mobility Services Engine. I would go as far as to say there are several very important distinctions for why the MSE should be considered a mandatory element within any Cisco Wireless Design.
Cisco’s been doing virtualization in various forms on the network side for quite a long time. One incredibly powerful feature that I think is still amazingly under utilized is the Cisco VSS or Virtual Switching System.
The ability to make two 6500’s look like a single switch so that you can have your cake and eat it too. Its the epitome of giving us the redundancy and availability we need while simultaneously allowing us to use the extra capacity that could normally sit unused. Easier management and configuration make this a no-brainer that more network managers should consider as ‘required’ in their design. Check out our ‘Fundamentals of VSS‘ to get yourself started.
Even more after the jump…
