Columbus Crew SC says it made an agreement with IBM services to create and design an new fan experience at the new downtown stadium.

The team says it wants to provide an interactive experience for players, coaches, staff, and especially supporters.

IBM helped to create unique experiences for Mercedes-Benz Stadium (home of the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United), Banc of California Stadium (home to the Los Angeles Football Club) and Kyle Field at Texas A&M.

“As we look ahead to our new stadium, creating and delivering the best experience possible for the Crew SC fanbase is a key objective for the Club,” said Columbus Crew SC President and General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko. “By collaborating with IBM, we will ensure that Crew supporters have a unique experience at every event, setting the bar for future sports and entertainment venues. We look forward to working with IBM as this investment is a continued reflection of the commitment from the Haslam and Edwards Families to make Crew SC a pace-setter for the fan experience in North American sports.”
