Bury FC sign agreement with Eleven Sports Media
English Football League club, Bury, have joined a growing list of sports clubs to integrate Eleven Sports Media’s fan engagement platform, StadiumTV, into their matchday offering.
StadiumTV is Eleven’s most popular digital content platform and is currently broadcast at more than 50 venues, across football, rugby union and rugby league, including Newcastle United, Stoke City, Watford and Swansea City in the Premier League.
The platform is recognised by fans across the country for bringing the latest match action, club news, team line-ups and match details to concourses, but for the first time this season, StadiumTV also features the club’s Twitter and Instagram channels as part of the broadcast.
StadiumTV will be broadcast at Gigg Lane for the first time at the commencement of the new EFL League One campaign in August. Eleven have installed high specification 50” LED screens within concourse and bar areas at the club, bringing additional and clear commercial benefits for club partners, sponsors and advertisers.
Eleven Sports Media's Managing Director, Matt Cairns said: "Bury are one of the most progressive clubs in the English Football League so we were delighted to embark on a new partnership that sees our most prolific product become part of the match day offering at Gigg Lane. Attending football fans now demand a much more immersive and interactive experience than ever before, we are certain StadiumTV will help to achieve that for the Bury supporters through the 2016/17 campaign."
Business Development Manager, Daniel Bowerbank added, “As part of the Club’s commitment to offer fan engagement with the fans throughout a matchday we have an agreement with Eleven Sports Media to embark on additional interactions with the fans. This agreement has seen additional TV’s installed within the Retail Shop and the South, Family and Neville Neville Stand with replacements for the old TVs within the East Stand and hospitality areas.”
