VfUK will supply 5G connectivity and Internet of Things (IoT) technology for matches held at the Ricoh Arena stadium in Coventry (where network vendor Ericsson is also a sponsor and technology partner).

The partnership follows the OpCo’s two-year sponsorship deal for Wasps’ men’s rugby and netball teams in May 2019.

The ground will also host a Vodafone Business Lounge for VfUK business customers (one of two lounges outside the telco’s Newbury headquarters), as well as a new innovation centre, similar to the OpCo’s digital innovation hub at MediaCityUK in Salford, Greater Manchester, for use by businesses and startups across the West Midlands region.
