Stoke City sign Eleven Sports Media deal
The Manchester-based sports media agency will install its StadiumTV and StatZone products at the English side's home ground, which will be known as the Bet365 Stadium from next season. 57 new 50-inch LED TV screens have been installed in councourses and hospitality areas at the ground, with 43 of them showing StadiumTV content and 17 displaying the StatZone channel.
Eleven Sports Media also has partnerships in place with a range of Premier League clubs, including newly crowned champions Leicester City, as well as with European rugby union champions Saracens and Jockey Club-owned horse racing venues Haydock Park and Sandown Park.
"The installation at Stoke City has capped off what has been a really busy year for everyone concerned with Eleven Sports Media," said Eleven Sports Media head of partnerships Sharon Smith. "With 20 installations at clubs and venues across the UK, we have worked around the clock to ensure that our partners received the highest level of service.
“Eleven are now working across 65 different projects in UK sport, and are quite rightfully recognised as the market leaders in providing digital content platforms to sports stadium and venues. We look forward to building relationships with many more clubs through 2016 and beyond.”
Stoke City finished ninth in English soccer's top tier in 2015/16.
