FANS will be able to s-log on as they take in the action at the Cooper Associates County Ground next season.

Somerset County Cricket Club has been working to install wifi at the ground which will be available to fans for the start of the 2019 season.

Bristol-based firm ITEC is behind the work, which will not only boost fans' connectivity, but also improve the club offers on non-matchdays, with businesses, organisations and individuals able to take advantage of the new service when using the ground for conferences, meetings and presentations.

Somerset CCC strategy director, Sarah Trunks, said: “Ground-wide wifi has been on our agenda for some time and it’s the next logical step to take when considering the matchday experience and additional value for our members and supporters.

“With the ICC Cricket World Cup coming to Taunton alongside the installation of the new floodlights, now is the perfect opportunity to further our digital vision, and thanks must go to all those who have been involved in the process thus far.

“We are delighted to further our relationship with ITEC, who have previously supplied the club’s printers.

"They are a dynamic and growing company with their roots firmly placed in the South West and we look forward to working with them to deliver this service over the next few years.”

Nick Parsons, account director from ITEC, said: “SCCC have a clear digital strategy and are embracing market-leading technology to achieve their goals.

"We at ITEC are excited and proud to deliver the technology based 100% around their requirements, and provide full service to ensure the project’s success.

“The new wifi solution will put SCCC at the forefront of mobility technology, making them one of the most advanced stadiums in the UK.

"It will provide additional revenue generation tools and seamless wireless mobility to their visitors, allowing access to exclusive social media content, replays, rewards and promotions, enhancing the experience at the ground in unprecedented ways.”
