The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have partnered with ProWire to provide a new in-stadium audio experience for fans attending home games at Tim Hortons Field. Ticats fans will be able to access in-game play-by-play, live field effects, and Ticats Audio Network original content in real-time through their mobile device.
The Ticats are the first Canadian Football League (CFL) team to deploy ProWire’s patented real-time audio streaming technology. The fully integrated service will run on the fan WiFi and be accessible via the Ticats All Access App. Fans at the game will be able to stream real-time channels by downloading the Tiger-Cats All Access App and activating the service.
“We are excited to partner with ProWire and provide this new gameday experience for our fans,” said Matt Afinec, President & COO, Business Operations of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Football Club. “As we continue to build out our Ticats Audio Network, ProWire’s technology is a great compliment to leverage our existing broadcast and provides a platform to innovate on exclusive content only available at Tim Hortons Field.”
ProWire’s patented streaming technology enables venues with existing WiFi or 5G networks to stream audio directly to fans’ phones with no delay. Fans can access in-game audio throughout the venue and choose from a selection of channels to enhance their experience.
“The Ticats have an incredibly passionate fan base and the game day experience at Tim Hortons Field is second to none,” said Gordon Sumner, Co-Founder & CEO of ProWire. “We are looking forward to working with them to deliver new, immersive real-time audio experiences for fans at the game.”
