Brentwood teamed up with stadium entertainment specialist EVENT360, who asked us to provide two way radio support for England’s visit to the Principality Stadium, Cardiff on 11th February.
The game, enjoyed by a packed house of 74,500 rugby fans, will be remembered as a Six Nations classic, as a late try from England’s Elliot Daly four minutes from time saw his side snatch a dramatic 16-21 victory over their Welsh hosts.
EVENT360 specialises in providing match day entertainment, event presentation and spectator experiences at major global sporting events. As well as Six Nations rugby, its client list includes the England, Wales and Scotland national rugby union and football teams, Premiership Rugby, the Football League and the NFL.
For the Wales vs England Six Nations game, they wanted two way radio support to help set up for the big day at the Principality Stadium, as well as ensure everything ran to a tee during the big match itself.
As with any major international sporting event, Six Nations matches are fast and frantic, and organisers have to stay on their toes and in touch to keep the show rolling for tens of thousands of paying spectators. With the glare of the world’s TV cameras also on them, EVENT360 were eager to make sure their pre match and half time on field presentations were perfect.
Straightforward & Efficient
We recommended a fleet of Motorola DP2400 handheld radios for the day. A digital non-display model, the DP2400 offers a range of advanced features ideal for use in the high pressure atmosphere of a sports stadium. It is a stripped down, straightforward model with very simple, intuitive controls, so users would be able to pick it up and use straight out of the box.
Intelligent audio minimises background noise whilst automatically adjusting microphone and speaker volume to ensure voice communications are always clear and sharp, no matter how loud the crowd is cheering. To further improve audibility, we also supplied heavy duty headsets and D shape earpieces.
The DP2400 also benefits from supporting both group and private calling, so teams were able to target communications efficiently to the right people without having to make open channel broadcasts to all users every time.
