PatScan, already in use at Great American Ball Park, home of MLB’s Cincinnati Reds, uses hidden sensors and machine learning to detect threats such as concealed weapons, chemicals and bombs, fights and other disturbances and more recently has added health and safety modules that can be used to monitor body temperature, mask use and physical distancing. The company and LAFC, which have been ramping up their partnership since December, plan to work with other pro… Continue Reading Patriot One Adds Stadium to Roster
Banc of California Stadium will use Armored Things’ system to monitor movement within the facility. (Courtesy LAFC) Crowd intelligence software system will help with safe opening When Major League Soccer eventually returns to home venues, Los Angeles FC will use Boston-based Armored Things’ crowd intelligence software system at its 22,000-seat Banc of California Stadium to help maximize the safety of fans and operations personnel.

The system, which uses existing cameras, Wi-Fi and other data inputs, took on new significance once the season was suspended in March after the team had played just two matches, according to LAFC/Banc of California Stadium Chief Technology Officer Christian Lau. Armored Things CEO Julie Johnson Roberts said: “We were talking to them about helping with security and operational efficiencies and then COVID hit and… Continue Reading LAFC Finds New Use for Armored Things

(Courtesy LAFC) Concessionaires help design social experiences, wider range of offerings for soccer fans Already this Major League Soccer season, Minnesota United FC has opened $250 million Allianz Field and the Portland Timbers have pumped $85 million into expanding and renovating Providence Park. Both venues, plus 2017 newcomers Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles and Audi Field in Washington, D.C., came with a rethinking of the way MLS delivers premium hospitality, now that the league’s teams largely have their own buildings. Building venues specifically for the sport has allowed concessionaires to work with architects and design experiences into the construction. It also offers better programming to align with expanded ticket offerings, such as all-inclusive, open-air social gathering spots and a broader mix of higher-end clubs and suites. “We see an increase… Continue Reading New MLS Venues Renew Premium Hospitality
