Verizon and the NFL have announced a deal that extends their long-running partnership for 10 more years. The move will bring Verizon’s high-speed 5G ultra wideband coverage to 25 stadiums this season, power its 5G Multi-View, “Next Gen Stats,” and look to enhance the experience for fans, coaches, players, staff, and more. And along with the announcement, the carrier and the NFL are giving away tickets to the next 10 years of Super Bowl games.
Verizon announced the news in a press release this morning. Expanding from 13 stadiums since 2019, Verizon’s 5G UWB service will be available in “parts of 25 NFL stadiums” for the 2021-2022 NFL season.
Verizon and the NFL today announced a 10-year partnership that will utilize 5G to support innovation and technology adoption throughout the league. The partnership builds on the more than 10-year relationship between the NFL and Verizon that paved the way for the installation of Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband service in parts of 25 NFL stadiums. Over the next decade, Verizon and the NFL will utilize 5G to unlock advancements that could have the ability to impact management, scouting, training, health and safety and game day operations.
Verizon highlighted more about the features and benefits the 5G UWB coverage will offer:
Together, Verizon and the NFL are transforming how people watch sports at the stadium. In 2019 Verizon deployed 5G Ultra Wideband in parts of 13 stadiums to coincide with the NFL regular season Kickoff. Over the last two years, Verizon has expanded 5G Ultra Wideband connectivity within those venues and surrounding areas, and has partnered with the NFL on in-stadium fan experiences like Verizon 5G Multi-View, which enables fans to view up to seven simultaneous camera angles and AR overlays of the NFL’s Next Gen Stats on select 5G-enabled phones. Verizon 5G Multi-View will continue to be available during the 2021 season in select NFL Club phone apps for fans in-stadium on gameday. Today, 5G Ultra Wideband is live in select parts of 25 NFL stadiums and more than 60 sports and entertainment venues across the country.
And for the giveaway, the carrier and the NFL are going to pick one winner to get two tickets to the next 10 Super Bowls. The contest starts today and runs through September 16, 2021. Read all the fine print here, but this is how the giveaway works:
