An English Premier League First – Manchester City and Cisco

Etihad Stadium 1

A year ago, Manchester City captured its first English Premier League (EPL) title in 44 years with one of the most incredible comebacks ever seen in the history of the sport – scoring two goals in stoppage time, the last in the waning moments of the game.

Take a look at this video, which replays that final incredible goal from multiple angles, and embrace the bedlam, unbridled passion, emotion and joy that unfolded in the stands, on the field, and everywhere in Etihad Stadium.

Now imagine if every fan could watch a replay, from multiple camera angles, on their mobile device, to relive a special moment like this goal time and time again. That will be a reality next season, thanks to O2 and Cisco working with Man City to implement Cisco Connected Stadium Wi-Fi and StadiumVision Mobile. Blues fans will be the first in the EPL to have a more immersive, connected, visual, and engaged experience that places them at the center of the action, no matter where they are in the venue.

It’s another first for Cisco, building on recent wins such as Bayer Leverkusen, the first team in the German Bundesliga, and the Seibu Dome, home of the Seibu Lions Japanese Baseball League team. Add in facilities who implemented our solutions for recent major events, like the Mercedes-Benz Superdome (Super Bowl), and the Georgia Dome (NCAA Final Four), and we’re proud to be at the epicenter of helping our customers and partners deliver an unparalleled experience for fans.
