In this sense, we have already seen some investments by operators and other entities and Benfica is the most recent, namely at Estádio da Luz.

NOS and Benfica today presented the first 5G Stadium in Portugal. NOS provided the Sport Lisboa e Benfica stadium with 5G coverage, allowing fans and the entire collaborative structure of the Club to take advantage of the most disruptive characteristics of this new technology, when it is working.

The capacity of the network will also be greater, making it possible to process a much larger volume of data within the stadium. Before the pandemic, with the presence of the public, the average volume of data per game exceeded 1 Terabyte, and it is expected that with the 5G this number will double or triple, depending on people’s adherence to the technology.

5G will radically transform the experience of those who watch Benfica games, through access to content in a totally immersive way, thanks to the combination of 5G with technologies such as virtual or augmented reality.

When 5G becomes a reality, we want to be the first to deliver it to people and companies, and since football is a natural territory for technology to develop, it makes sense to create, now, all the conditions for that to happen ”.

Rui Costa, Vice-President of Sport Lisboa e Benfica, says “Sport Lisboa e Benfica is a Club where innovation is at the center of its strategy. This is a transformative project. Being the first 5G stadium in Portugal is a source of pride. This technology will bring Benfica even closer to its Partners, supporters and supporters. It means an improved experience in this stadium, for all our fans and for Benfica, as an organization”.
