Spectrum Enterprise, the business services arm of Charter Communications (NASDAQ:CHTR), is partnering with Orlando City Stadium in Florida to provide networking and managed services, including managed WiFi, fiber-based Internet access and hosted voice, in the stadium's new soccer facility. Orlando City Stadium serves as the home of Orlando City SC of Major League Soccer (MLS), Orlando Pride of the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) and Orlando City B of the United Soccer League (USL).

Spectrum Enterprise provides end-to-end managed WiFi services throughout the stadium to enable a connected fan base to share their experiences on social networks, live stream events and participate in larger conversations happening beyond the arena's walls.

A ticketless entry system, supported by Spectrum Enterprise's managed WiFi service, enables access and ticketing through fans' smartphones or other connected devices.

Spectrum Enterprise connectivity provides access to the LionNation fan loyalty mobile application that enables live check-ins, sharing and discounts through a points system accumulated from ticket, concession and memorabilia purchases within the stadium.

Spectrum Enterprise delivers a cloud-based hosted voice service to the Stadium's corporate environment to improve the way employees connect with each other, as well as vendors and sponsors.

"We want every one of our fans to have an unforgettable experience every time they come to watch one of our teams on their home turf," said Renato Reis, chief information officer, Orlando City SC. "Spectrum Enterprise's strong presence throughout central Florida and proven track record of successfully executing large-scale deployments, make them the ideal partner to help us achieve this goal for the 2017 season and beyond."
