Global venue development, advisory and investment company Oak View Group has expanded its partnership with financial technology company DailyPay to roll out a first-of-its-kind integration into venues across the US.
The partnership will reach seven NBA and NHL teams and 125 venues across the country. The expansion comes following the regional-level launches of the programme in select markets, including UBS Arena, Xcel Energy Center and Toyota Center.
As part of the new deal, OVG and OVG Alliance venues will offer DailyPay services to all their employees, enabling them to access their earned wages in real time, empowering them to pay bills, spend, save or invest on their own schedule. Employees will also benefit from the platform’s robust financial wellness tools, which include budgeting and savings features.

The deal will include state-of-the-art IP voice solutions, dedicated fibre internet, advanced network and premise security, hospitality network-managed Wi-Fi access points, and other provisions.
Audiovisual systems manufacturer Daktronics recently partnered with Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Arena to design, manufacture and install a new five-display centrehung system and freeform marquee display at the venue.
The centrehung display features four main video displays, one facing each direction while hanging from the centre of the arena. Each display measures four metres high by seven metres wide. Below these four displays sits a ring display measuring one metre high by 22 metres in circumference.
The displays are capable of variable content zoning, allowing them to show one large image or to be divided into multiple different zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, statistics, graphics and animations, and other arena messages.
