BT Business has announced a new contract win that sees it supply a range of comms services to QPR FC.
The London-based Premier League outfit will get the BT One Phone system and a network that links its stadium, Loftus Road, with its training ground, including dedicated bandwidth via the operator’s Converge platform and fixed internet from BTNet.
The cloud-based One Phone, which launched last year, enables staff to take fixed-line calls in their mobiles using EE’s network.
As part of the deal, BT Sport branding will feature on the headrests of both sets of dugout seats at Loftus Road from the start of the 2015/16 season, in addition to LED signage and BT Sport content on the stadium’s big screen.
The operator has spent billions on acquiring rights to screen Premier League football on its BT Sport TV channels.
Ironically, QPR risk being relegated from England’s top league this season.
Graham Sutherland, CEO of BT Business, commented: “This is an exciting and high profile partnership for BT Business.
“The choice of a communications partner was a critical decision for QPR because technology plays such an integral role in everything they do off the pitch.”
BT Business saw revenues fall two percent in the last three months of 2014 as companies continued to shun voice services.
