Tottenham Hotspur new stadium: HP deal to create ‘ultimate’ tech experience
Tottenham Hotspur FC have signed a deal to make American tech company HP the official provider of computer hardware and printer devices at their new stadium.
The club’s forthcoming home is set be one of the world’s most technologically advanced stadia – and the deal with HP is part of a move to cement that vision.
The company will supply a range of its latest devices, including retail point of sale (POS) systems, desktop and notebook computers, display monitors and commercial printers.
The retail POS products will operate under its Device as a Service (DaaS) model, providing Spurs with real-time hardware analytics and proactive device management capabilities.
According to HP, it will enable the club to better analyse hardware performance, detect potential problems before they occur and implement corrective actions to avoid costly downtime.
Matthew Collecott, group operations and finance director at Tottenham, said: “Creating a technology infrastructure that can support an enhanced fan experience requires devices that can meet the growing demands of everyone that comes to enjoy our new stadium.
“We believe HP, with its wealth of market-leading solutions, can support us on this journey and help us create the ultimate experience for every visitor to our new home.”
Richard Ford, UKI enterprise solutions director at HP, commented: “Tottenham Hotspur understands that technology can play a fundamental role in enhancing live sporting events, from both a retail and spectator perspective.
“As an official supplier to its iconic new stadium, HP technology will give the club the support to reinvent the matchday experience for its loyal fan base.”
