Taking the stage at TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit 2016, Francis Casado, Business Development Manager, Mobile Media Content, will be talking about how MMC’s 3D Digital Venue Platform is aiding global sports clubs with interactive venue management solutions, detailing specifically how MMC assisted Atlético de Madrid move operations from Vicente Calderón to their new stadium.
Digital environment in the Sports & Entertainment industry is no longer a luxury factor but a necessity for the operational success of a venue. For any stadium management and operations team, the challenges have grown in magnitude over the years, alongside the major goal of having a stadium filled to its capacity throughout the season. These now include exploiting all online and offline resources to be equipped with advanced innovative solutions to aid in generating new revenue channels, optimising resources and delivering the most cost efficient fan experiences. Keeping these facts in mind, Spain’s third most successful professional football club, Atlético de Madrid decided to move bases from stadium Vicente Calderón to their new stadium, to meet growing fan expectations and give them the best interactive experience.
Maintaining their previous successful record of aiding professional sports clubs such as Manchester City FC and the Rugby Football Union in their processes of interactive venue management and season member relocation, MMC decided to extend its full support to help Atlético de Madrid achieve their goal of providing an ultimate fan experience.
MMC’s 3D Digital Venue platform enabled Atlético de Madrid to locate seats with visual restrictions pre-construction, which helped the Atlético de Madrid project team to improvise their final finishing and control these problems. This enabled cost savings for the club by tackling the reworks that would have been needed post construction, avoid fan disappointment and complaints and improvise overall fan experience by eliminating all seats with restricted visuals.
Alongside, MMC created a fully online process dedicated to relocating season card holders from stadium Vicente Calderón to the new stadium. The online process had the capability to display the view from their new seat in an interactive experience for the fans. This idea allowed the relocation to proceed and complete, even before the new stadium construction was finished, thus allowing the club to operate at 100% since its opening day, not to mention the income generated beforehand by the renewal of season tickets.
Mr. Fernando Fariza (Director of Operations – Atlético Madrid) explained his experience collaborating with MMC:
“Mobile Media Content provided us with a more accurate digital visualisation of the situation in our stadium, it certainly helped us to understand minute design details that could improve the visibility from seats and the fans would appreciate this. On the other hand the transfer of the season card fans has been very fluid. I have been very happy with the performance of the tool and certainly the next phase would involve benefitting from the capabilities’ of MMC’s 3D Digital Venue tool in selling tickets and making it available to our sponsors for an excellent innovative activation”
