Stockholm, Sweden - May 19,2014 - As the first arena in Europe, Tele2 Arena will give visitors access to new arena experiences via mobile devices.

The audience will be able to watch live broadcasts and replays in their mobile devices, share their experience directly via large arena screens, view live stats and participate in direct audience voting for the best player in the game or requesting a song during a concert.
Tele2 Arena is the first in Europe to offer their visitors Cisco StadiumVision Mobile, which is part of the new Tele2 Arena app, allowing every visitor to become a larger part of the total live experience at the venue.

Together with our football teams Djurgården and Hammarby, our concerts and other events, the audience gets a unique combination of live entertainment and interactive digital app services to participate in shaping the future of arena experiences, says Ninna Engberg, CEO of Stockholm Globe Arenas.
Every visitor who downloads the Tele2 Arena app also converts their mobile device into an interactive TV and a social platform for what is happening on the pitch or on stage. The app opens up a whole new world of digital opportunities that involves and engages the audience in a way never seen in Europe before.
- We have built a world-class arena network that allows 40,000 visitors to make calls, use social channels such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and engage with the live action in new ways to enhance the experience. Through our arena network we have created Sweden's most social arena where audience engagement becomes part of the overall experience, says Thomas Ekman, CEO Tele2 Sweden.
