Football stadiums; the heart of new smart cities
Football stadiums can benefit their surroundings in numerous ways. They attract thousands of people and create new opportunities for the development of the areas in which they are located. Currently many cities have begun to convert their stadiums into smart stadiums, such as Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano or Munich’s Allianz Arena.
The new smart stadiums not only meet the technological expectations of the people who attend them, they also generate an environment of sustainable technological growth that benefits their cities, they even contribute to the creation of new mini smart cities.
The construction of an ecological infrastructure is accomplished through the installation of dozens of solar panels that help improve environmental sustainability, create new public transport connections and even their own electric bicycle stations.
In addition to the ecological sustainability, stadiums generate wealth in the form of commerce and employment.
