Barcelona to Make Nou Camp Europe’s First Stadium with Dedicated 5G Coverage

Barcelona have unveiled pretty ambitious plans to make their iconic Nou Camp Stadium the continent’s first ground with dedicated 5G coverage.

According to Tech Radar, the La Liga giants are working in conjunction with Telefónica and mobile industry body the GSMA with the aim of stands and the playing field being covered by the 5G technology, and it is hoped it will create a more immersive experience for fans watching elsewhere.

Incredibly, viewers watching at home will be able to use virtual-reality glasses to watch matches from various locations in high-definition 4K quality – including from the directors’ box, behind the goals, the dugout and even on the pitch itself – thanks to a spate 360-degree cameras strategically placed around the pitch.

The Catalan club competes with bitter rivals Real Madrid and other major European teams to secure followers on social media and other web platforms and the Barca hierarchy believe 5G can massively boost engagement.

What do you think of the incredible plans? Is the average fan’s match-day experience now much more important to clubs than ever before?
