With competition from the ability to watch games from home or on mobile devices, stadiums are looking to enhance the fan experience to draw crowds. Understanding fans changing needs and requirements is paramount to developing a venue capable of maximizing fan engagement, commercial opportunities deriving from a modern stadium, and stakeholder ROI. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH, connected lighting systems can be used in stadiums to create ambience and excitement while also collecting real-time data, optimizing performance through remote control, and enabling interaction with fans via mobile devices.

The way fans experience sports in stadiums has changed significantly in recent years and will change even more quickly in the next decade, says Christina Jung, research analyst with Navigant Research.
