Major League Lacrosse franchise scores big by instituting Comcast Business Internet and WiFi

Comcast Business today announced that the Boston Cannons rely on Comcast Business services to provide an enhanced game-day fan experience at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

The Boston Cannons are a Major League Lacrosse (MLL) franchise and one of the most recognizable global lacrosse brands. With eight home games this past season, an average attendance of 4,500 fans and a dedicated pre-game fan festival, the organization aims to provide fans an exceptional game day experience, every time.

When the team announced plans to transition from Harvard Stadium to Veterans Memorial Stadium in Quincy last December, the move came with both opportunities and challenges. In partnership with the City of Quincy, Veterans Memorial Stadium underwent several renovations – from modern seating pavilions and locker rooms to a new 40×40 foot video screen, Daktronics scoreboard and press box – but lacking existing infrastructure, the organization was in search of a reliable provider to meet their connectivity needs. The Boston Cannons turned to Comcast Business to provide Ethernet Dedicated InternetBusiness Internet for their press box, as well as fan WiFi.

“If it was not for Comcast Business, we wouldn’t have been able to provide a world-class entertainment experience that our fans expect in stadium and on our partner broadcast platforms,” said Ian Frenette, President of the Boston Cannons. “Comcast was able to come in and quickly provide the connectivity solutions we needed to successfully kick off the 2019 season.  We look forward to working with them on future projects as we continue to build up Veterans Memorial Stadium.”

The Cannons finished the 2019 season with a 9-7 record, selling out two games and qualifying for MLL Championship Weekend.

“We love seeing our technology and communications services enable fan experience solutions and offerings,” said Barry Bader, Vice President of Comcast Business in the Greater Boston Region.  “At Comcast Business, we understand it’s no longer enough to meet fan expectations, you have to exceed them, and in order for stadiums, like Veterans Memorial, to do this, a strong network at the foundation is crucial.”
