ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Get ready for more Tweets, Snapchat posts, and Facebook photos from Busch Stadium. On Friday, the St. Louis Cardinals activated the new public facing WiFi system at Busch Stadium. Most of the hardware was installed during the off-season, but finishing touches were required during the early part of the 2016 season.
Fans attending games are encouraged to log on to the ‘CardinalsWiFi’ service set identifier (SSID) being broadcast throughout the ballpark from their mobile device. Once selected, fans will be asked to provide the name of their cellular carrier and agree to terms and conditions before their device is authenticated to access the WiFi network.
The effort to equip Busch Stadium with WiFi throughout the stadium is part of Major League Baseball Advanced Media’s $300 million, multi-year plan to bring WiFi and improved cellular connectivity to every major league ballpark.
Over 740 WiFi access points were installed to accommodate fans in all locations of the stadium including the AT&T Rooftop, Budweiser Brewhouse rooftop deck and. WiFi will soon be accessible at the Busch II Infield at Ballpark Village.
