This included for the nail-biting match against Manchester City on the 23rd January this year. The mid-week match saw the two teams competing to reach the Carabao Cup final, and despite a second half comeback from Bristol, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne cinched a victory for the current premier league winners.
To drown out the noise of an enthusiastic football crowd, it was a priority for the club that high quality digital radios were provided, to guarantee spectator and player safety throughout the match. Ashton Gate stadium – the historic home of Bristol City for more than 100 years – seats around 27,000 spectators, so full coverage across the large area was a necessity. It was essential that the radios provided were compact and durable, as well as offering high performance audio and advanced noise cancellation.
Brentwood recommended the hire of digital Motorola DP2400 radios which could communicate with the radios Bristol City purchased from us previously, in order to provide extra support for the match. Their Motorola DP3441e radios that they use at the club all year round are a durable, lightweight and portable, so sit comfortably in the palm of your hand. Perfect for users on the move around the stadium on busy match days.
For a large event which required hours of preparation in the run up to the match, the Motorola two way radios we supplied on hire were the ideal choice, with a battery life of up to 12 hours and a broadcast range capable of covering the stadium. The DP2400 also enables the use of an emergency button or lone worker mode. These safety features ensure that any individual user can quickly call for help, critical when their safety or the safety of visitors is at risk.
Brentwood also supplied Bristol City with D Shape earpieces. These provided a discreet way of listening to communications, and offered the reassurance of immediate communication with on call medics or security if required.
