Wycombe Wanderers FC has announced plans to further enhance Adams Park after appointing stadium technology provider, Clearglow Sport, to install a new LED screen and digital perimeter system.
Since acquiring ownership of Wycombe Wanderers in 2020, club chairman and chief executive, Rob Couhig, has been determined to invest in the club and reward fans’ loyalty with an incredible matchday experience. The new 42 square metre LED screen will be one of the most visible investments.
The new perimeter system will also enhance the stadium, offering a platform for the club’s commercial partners to reach fans and the wider TV viewing audience. The system, which will span three sides of the pitch, will measure 900mm high, making it one of the largest in the English Football League (EFL).
Speaking of the development, Wycombe Wanderers’ chief commercial officer, Neil Peters, commented: “We can’t wait to welcome fans back into Adams Park, and we’re excited to be able to enhance the matchday experience for our incredible supporters. We’ve invested in new technology throughout the stadium, with the aim of bringing fans closer to the action and offer a strong platform for our commercial partners.”
“After a thorough review of the market, we’re delighted to appoint Clearglow Sport to help us deliver our vision. The team at Clearglow Sport have an incredible record in delivering large scale stadium LED projects which, combined with their industry leading technology, and powerful content management solutions, made them the ideal choice to help us grow.”
Clearglow Sport will install their technology at Adams Park in collaboration with LED manufacturer Unilumin over the summer, ready for the planned return of fans to Adams Park at the start of the 2021-22 season.
Clearglow Sport director, Kristian Ball, added: “We are incredibly excited to be working with Wycombe Wanderers, who have demonstrated huge ambition throughout the planning of this project. By combining a giant stadium LED screen with our high impact perimeter technology, Wycombe Wanderers will be able to create an incredibly powerful platform for fans and sponsors.”
“It has always been our ambition to make high quality, revenue-generating, LED platforms accessible to clubs of all sizes. No club should have to compromise on quality because of the league in which they are playing, and we’re delighted to be able to deliver the same industry leading LED display solutions for Wycombe Wanderers as used by some of the very top teams across Europe.”
