For the first time, Arsenal fans can enter Emirates Stadium from wherever they are in the world with the new Emirates Stadium Virtual Tour.

The tour gives supporters the opportunity to explore the venue with free reign. Accessible areas include manager Mikel Arteta’s matchday office, the press conference room, and exclusive VIP areas.

It is guided by commentary from the two senior club captains, Kim Little and Martin Odegaard.

Former player Lee Dixon is also on hand to take fans around the club museum, offering insights with never-before-heard stories and exclusive artefacts.

Proto Hologram has developed its latest hologram technology which saw new Chicago Bears players Caleb Williams and Roman Odunze appear digitally at Soldier Field.

Williams was the team’s No.1 draft pick this year in Detroit and was able to not only meet fans and media in hologram form, but also interact in real time.

Sports Entertainment Network (SEN) has developed a new live commentary feature within its app called SEN Stadium.

SEN Stadium can now eliminate transmission delays to deliver real-time broadcasts directly to fans inside venues.

Users are no longer required to join stadium Wi-Fi to experience the platform as it is now functional with 4G or 5G networks.

“We’ve taken on board the feedback from our users, and the introduction of 4G and 5G capability tackles one of the main issues they’ve raised about navigating the busy Wi-Fi networks in the stadiums,” said SEN digital director Simon Chapman.

“With SEN Stadium now available across the country, we’re thrilled to offer a truly nationwide solution for footy fans and are excited to expand the range of sports available on the platform in the future.”

Absen LED panels has created a 17-tonne LED cube that forms the centrepiece of the 12,000-seat LDLC Arena in Lyon, France’s second-largest indoor arena.

It was designed, manufactured and installed by French event production company Alabama Média and features four panels each measuring 8m x 4.5m.

Acrisure Arena, a multi-purpose venue in Greater Palm Springs, California, has unveiled the rollout of frictionless checkout stores powered by AiFi.

The Grab & Go Stands within the venue will give fans the opportunity to select which food and drink items they would like to purchase and walk out without waiting in line or scanning to pay.
