Everton FC have announced a multi-year agreement that will see HPE Aruba Networking, a provider for enterprise network infrastructure, become an Official Supplier of the new Everton Stadium on Bramley-Moore Dock.

The system, currently being installed at the Merseyside club’s new waterfront home, will include switches, access points, Wi-Fi, and wired network management and security software as well as network design, management, and monitoring services.

HPE Aruba Networking is a business unit of Hewlett Packard Enterprise and a provider of next-gen networking solutions. The Everton FC deal will see the global edge-to-cloud company provide a comprehensive networking infrastructure across the footprint of the Toffees’ new 52,888-capacity home.

HPE Aruba Networking’s solutions will enable Everton FC to develop their connected stadium strategy and use state-of-the-art digital tech to create an engaging fan experience for all visitors once the venue opens at the start of the 2025/26 season, inviting supporters to stay longer and enjoy the stadium’s facilities.

Richard Kenyon, Chief Commercial and Communications Officer at Everton Football Club, said: 

Working with HPE Aruba Networking will give Everton Stadium a best-in-class Wi-Fi network infrastructure and we are delighted to have them as an Official Supplier. Their expertise in networking some of the biggest venues in the UK, Europe and North America will be important as we develop the digital infrastructure and potential of Everton Stadium. 

A big positive of the move to our new home will be connectivity for supporters and the opportunities that will provide us to engage our partners in delivering the latest in digital experiences and services, both on matchdays and during other events held at the venue.

I would like to thank our Partnerships and Technology teams as well as our colleagues at Elevate for the work they have put in over recent months to secure this exciting deal.

Mark Weeks, director of UK & Ireland, HPE Aruba Networking, also added:

“We are proud to be joining the project to deliver a world-class venue and a world-class home for Everton.

“At HPE Aruba Networking, we know that technology is a key element to every fan experience, from the point when they enter the stadium, at times when they want to share their excitement with loved ones outside of the stadium, at half-time, when leveraging local services like restaurants and bars, and even after the match has ended.

“HPE Aruba Networking’s custom-designed and reliable network infrastructure enables Everton to stay connected with their fans throughout their matchday experience and beyond, helping the Club create a modern, interactive matchday experience.”
