(Getty Images) The crowds will come later, but these stadiums are making their mark The two most expensive stadiums in the world opened in 2020 to muted applause, underscoring the pandemic’s devastating effect on the sports and entertainment industry. SoFi Stadium, at cost of $5 billion, and Allegiant Stadium, a $2 billion facility, represent the future of NFL stadium design with starkly different looks.

SoFi Stadium officials declined to release details about who is supplying the oculus’ […]

(Getty Images) Next-generation technology will increase capacity for connections at stadiums The Wi-Fi 6 era has gotten its start in stadiums across the U.S. and will grow throughout 2020. • Just as 5G networks enhance cellular service, prominent new NFL stadiums in California and Nevada will both employ expansive next-generation local networks as Wi-Fi 6 expands elsewhere in the league as well as in Major League Soccer and college stadiums. “If you are doing a brand-new environment, of course you will put in the latest, greatest technology,” said John Brams, Extreme Networks director of sports and entertainment.
