Cox Business has signed on as the technology sponsor for Las Vegas Ballpark, the upcoming home of the Las Vegas Aviators (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League). Currently under construction in Downtown Summerlin, Las Vegas Ballpark is scheduled to open for the Aviators in April.
As the Technology Sponsor, Cox Business will be the exclusive technology solutions provider for Las Vegas Ballpark, supporting both operational functions and guest-facing technology.
The partnership features Cox’s product integration throughout Las Vegas Ballpark, as well as several promotional, marketing, fan activation and community relations initiatives.
“We value our relationship with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and The Howard Hughes Corporation, so we’re understandably very excited about this newest affiliation as Technology Sponsor at Las Vegas Ballpark,” said Derrick Hill, vice president, Cox Business Las Vegas. “As sports fans, we look forward to getting behind the Aviators during the team’s first season at its new stadium and helping to create a premier fan experience at the city’s new, first-class baseball venue.”
“Cox Business’ reputation as an industry-leading provider of technology products and solutions is well-known and well-deserved,” said Don Logan, president and chief operations officer of the Las Vegas Aviators. “Through this partnership, Cox Business will provide a broad range of services and products that will not only deliver the best possible stadium experience for fans, but also enhance the organization’s technological capabilities.”
As part of the deal, Cox Business will offer telecommunications services delivered through fiber optic cable including internet, cable television, voice services, managed public and private WiFi, as well as network infrastructure that includes 380 access points.
The company will also install a distributed antenna system designed to enhance wireless coverage provided by the major carriers within the ballpark.
