Stadium WiFi and tech monetization in the NFL

Very good article from TechRepublic about how the NFL uses in-stadium WiFi and apps. Super Bowl 50 saw 10.1 terabytes of data flow through the Levi's stadium's WiFi (63% increase to Super Bowl 49). Team apps feature in-stadium sections with the ability to order food&beverages to your seat, which obviously increases turnover, merchandising discounts and info on waiting lines for restrooms. The Patriots' app is used by 18-22k people each gameday - with 66000 in attendance. More great stats and info:
