Tottenham Hotspur has selected US technology company HP as its official computer hardware supplier ahead of the English Premier League football club’s move to a new stadium.
Under the agreement, HP will supply a range of its latest end-point devices, including retail point of sales systems, personal systems, commercial printers and displays at the new 61,000-seat stadium, which will host its first Spurs match next month.
HP was last year selected as Tottenham’s official IT networking and wireless infrastructure partner at the new stadium. HP previously partnered with Tottenham during the 1990s and again during the 2013-14 season.
Tottenham’s operations and finance director, Matthew Collecott, said: “Creating a technology infrastructure that can support an enhanced fan experience requires devices that can meet the growing demands of everyone that come 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, HP’s UKI enterprise solutions director, added: “Tottenham Hotspur understands that technology can play a fundamental role in enhancing live sporting events, from both a retail and supporter perspective. As an official supplier to its iconic new stadium, HP technology will give Tottenham Hotspur the support to create a new benchmark in matchday experience for its loyal fan base.”
Tottenham will open its new stadium against Liverpool on September 15. Tottenham had hoped the stadium would be ready in time for the start of the new season, which got underway at the weekend, but delays in construction work mean the club must play its first home match against Fulham at Wembley Stadium this Saturday.
