Footy fans might soon be able to order food from their seats as Perth’s Optus Stadium installs new Bluetooth technology.
Optus has installed over 1200 Bluetooth beacons inside for visitors to use the Stadium’s app.
“The Optus Stadium App connects via Bluetooth to deliver real-time indoor wayfinding, similar to Google Maps, to help fans find their seating, locate amenities and access the closest food and beverage outlets,” Optus Director of Sponsorship and Retail Marketing Ben Lawless-Jennings said.
The 60,000 seat Stadium includes 51 retail food and beverage outlets and over 1500 bathrooms – the app aims to help direct fans to what they need.
VenuesLive and Optus are working to develop technology so that fans at the venue can order food from their seats.
The app will also provide real-time data for the Stadium’s management to improve amenities and notify visitors of unplanned interruptions to services on the day.
The Optus Stadium App is available to download for free from the App Store and Google Play store.
