The International Champions Cup brings eight top international soccer clubs into competition in U.S. stadiums from July 24 through August 4. The teams will play three games each in a round-robin format, with the two top teams facing off on August 4 in Miami. Matches will be held at several stadiums equipped with TE DAS, including:
- CitiField in Flushing, N.Y.
- FedEx Field in Hyattsville, Md.
- Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas, Texas
- Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, N.Y.
- Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich.
- Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.

TE's DAS products are the choice for major stadiums and arenas around the world because they are easy to deploy and upgrade, and they deliver the highest possible performance. Fans at these stadiums will enjoy the ability to send texts, photos, e-mails and video clips to friends while watching the International Champions Cup matches or other events. According to a tier-one service provider, major U.S. sporting events have driven as much as 1.9 terabytes of data usage by spectators, representing a year-over-year increase in wireless traffic of 800 percent.
“Mobile devices are an integral part of sporting and entertainment events and fans expect access to all of their services from their seats,” said Peter Wraight, president of TE Wireless.
