Become part of the rugby match: The new app that lets you get up-close with the Vodafone Warriors

The launch of the new Vodafone Stadium Live App means that fans of the Vodafone Warriors can now get closer than ever before.

The app is developed for live games, meaning that users at the stadium can now get a better look at anything they may have missed. 

Developed in conjunction with SKY TV and the Vodafone Warriors, the Stadium Live app for Vodafone Warriors takes fans at Warriors home games right into the thick of the game-day action.

The app allows fans to stream replays and highlights live from their mobile device, with exclusive access to eight SKY TV camera angles.

Vodafone says the app is part of a natural progression of the company’s proud legacy with the club.

Jim Doyle, Vodafone Warriors managing director says, “Vodafone has been a core partner of ours since 1999, and their support has been unprecedented in the era of the professional sport. 

“The Stadium Live App is another demonstration of Vodafone’s complete commitment to the Vodafone Warriors, and ensures our fans get the benefit of the best technology has to offer.”

The Stadium Live for Vodafone Warriors app is the future for sports, enabling fans to connect with on-field action in new ways.

Russell Stanners, Vodafone CEO saying, “There’s no longer a need to crane your neck when the action’s down the field, or wonder why a call was made.

“With a flick of your thumb, you can rewind any of the eight camera angles back by 30 seconds to get a replay, just as you would while watching the match at home.”

“We’re thrilled to bring this world-leading technology to the passionate fans of the Vodafone Warriors.”

Fans are able to download the new free Stadium Live for Vodafone Warriors App now, ahead of Friday’s game against the reigning NRL champions, the Sharks.

The Stadium Live experience is available for fans to use once they are in the stadium.

The app also offers a range of additional opportunities to learn more about the Vodafone Warriors with player profiles and statistics, draw information, merchandise, and a fast track to their social media pages.

Hopefully, other companies follow in the footsteps of Vodafone and release similar apps.

This will allow fans of rugby to engage in previously impossible ways, helping fans to not miss a single important moment. 

Even more exciting would be if these apps allowed VR integration, as VR headsets become more widespread and affordable.

VR integration would mean that fans would literally be thrust into the heat of the action, taking live sports events to a whole new level.
