The Waikato Chiefs Super Rugby club deployed cutting edge Crowd Convergence stat display technology to put fans first during the 2017 Super Rugby season. With an extremely passionate and educated fan-base, the club wanted to provide fans with an informing and engaging experience inside Waikato stadium. Crowd Convergence and Opta Sports, Super Rugby’s official stats provider, were engaged to provide live stats information on their in-stadium big screen, giving fans broadcast-level insight in the stadium environment.
Statistics Customised for the Waikato Stadium big screen
Through our partnership with Opta Sports, fans are fed a full suite of live and historical statistics with content decisions made on the run, and steered to capitalise on the progress of the live match. The custom-designed statistics display takes over the entire in-stadia screen at strategic times pre-game, half-time and post-game giving fans detailed analysis on team head-to-heads and individual player performances. Stats also appear during the match superimposed over live game vision giving fans a quick visual representation of how their team is doing without blocking screen vision.
With accompanying commentary by the MC, the Chiefs are providing a ‘best in class’ in-stadia experience for fans who want to enjoy the live game atmosphere and stay informed through live match stats.
