Get in on the action—even if you're not actually on the field. When you pass through the gates of the 21st century stadium, you’re immediately connected to an engaging sports experience. Use your handheld device to find your seat, download a program, order food and drinks without getting up, and purchase tickets for future games. View live-action and replay video on your handheld, or on high-definition screens throughout the facility. Get profiles of your favorite players and see what teams are winning games at other stadiums. And when a game isn’t scheduled, the network’s multimedia and mobile capabilities help turn the stadium into a versatile venue for performances and other public events. On and off the field, the network is transforming the sporting life by putting interaction into play.
