SAN JOSE (CelebrityAccess) — The Major League Soccer team The San Jose Earthquakes have announced the signing of a multi-year naming rights agreement for their new stadium with telecom company Avaya.
As a part of the deal, Avaya will help make the now-named Avaya Stadium the first 'cloud-enabled' MLS venue.
“I think all the things will create a very tech-forward, innovative experience for fans that can really be in the envy of stadiums from across the world,” Earthquakes president Dave Kaval said.
“We’ll have this cloud-enabled stadium that Avaya is powering which enables us to create a better fan experience for our customers,” Kaval added. “It starts with our app, our Avaya stadium app which we’re now launching. It will allow people to handle commerce, things like actually having their ticket on their actual app, and they’ll be able to use that to scan into the building; being able use it on concessions and things of this nature, and for ordering in some parts of the venue, which is great.’
According to San Jose Mercury News, Santa Clara-based Avaya has agreed to pay $20 for stadium naming rights over the course of a 10-year term.
The under-construction, 18,000-capacity stadium is slated for completion later this month. – Staff Writers
